Iman Gadzhi says he finds it impossible to spend more than R500,00 a day in Cape Town.

The Russian entrepreneur is a self-made millionaire and recently bought a home in Cape Town where he spends four months per year.

He shared his struggle to spend R500,000 a day in the Mother City in a reel posted to his Instagram account.

“I have legitimately tried to spend more than $30,000 a month in Cape Town… it’s impossible.”

Gadzhi dropped out of high school to start his own digital marketing agency and claims to make around $10 million per year.

Cape Town isn’t the only city in the world where he owns homes, but it’s the only city where he struggles to spend such a large amount of money on a daily basis.

“I go to every single restaurant, I try to look for the most expensive bottle of wine, I’ve never been able to find something over 100 bucks (dollars). Cape Town is SO cheap man, it’s insane.”

In another video, Gadzhi can be seen describing what his mansion looks like.

“My house is 12,000 square feet, I have a steam room, a sauna, I have a full home cross-fit gym, I have two security guards on rotation, I have a full-time chef…”
