Octopizzo, a well-known male rapper from Kenya, has recently caused quite a stir online by flaunting his expensive Richard Mille watch. Specifically, he shared his RM 11 model on his official Instagram page stories, after remaining relatively quiet for some time.
Richard Mille watches are designed to be both shock-resistant and accurate, using lightweight materials such as grade 5 titanium, LITAL, Carbon TPT, and graphene. The company is also famous for utilizing unique case and baseplate materials, such as carbon nanotubes, gold fused with carbon, and toughened ceramic, which add to the watches’ resilience.
What makes Richard Mille watches so expensive, however, is their limited supply and handmade craftsmanship. This creates a high demand and drives up the price, making them a symbol of luxury and exclusivity. Once a customer purchases a Richard Mille watch, they become part of an elite group, further adding to its appeal and value.
Octopizzo’s Richard Mille watch costs a whopping $226,000, equivalent to Ksh. 30 Million. However, there are watches from the same company that retail at Ksh.120 Million and above.
As one of the most successful artists in Kenya, Octopizzo leads a lavish lifestyle and has achieved a lot in his music career. He frequently travels around the world, and many of his music videos are shot outside Kenya. Given his success, he is more than capable of purchasing such an expensive watch.
