GENIUS “Ginimbi” Kadungure says he is not in a race with anyone and would not be told how to spend his money.
Ginimbi took delivery of a brand new Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster, valued at US$377 544, on Wednesday and social media immediately pitted him against Prophet Passion Java.
The 2019 model is an import from the United Kingdom, arrived via the Forbes Border post and has a total value of $605 213 after duty.
Although Ginimbi didn’t talk about Passion as he paraded his new baby alongside keys to four other high performance luxury cars, social media comments under his posts were quick to draw comparisons with Passion who also owns a Lamborghini amongst his fleet of vehicles.
“Oh guys, nice life problems! Look at my problems: Monday – Rolls Royce Rave, Tuesday – Bentley Continental, Wednesday – Ferrari 488, Thursday – Rolls Royce Ghost, Friday – Lamborghini Langongo . . . So these are my life problems . . . look at them!” bragged Ginimbi.
“Mbinga yemashuwa, nhasi Java anorara nebhutsu” was one of the comments under the post poking fun at Passion.
On Thursday Passion took the bait and was responding to social media comments on Ginimbi’s latest acquisition, including suggesting that he was the one being copied as he already has a similar car.
However, in an EXCLUSIVE interview with H-Metro Thursday night, Ginimbi said he was not in competition with anyone.
Ginimbi said he has been buying cars for nearly a decade and the perceived competition (Prophet Passion) only emerged last year.
He added that people, especially on social media, had no right to tell him how to spend his money, as they are nowhere to be seen when he is struggling.
“I will not stop buying cars because it’s something I enjoy. I am doing it for myself, I am not in a race with anyone and I have been doing it for a long time now.
“I do not understand why I get so many teachers on my lifestyle, everyone wants to teach me how to spend my money yet they are not there when I am struggling. People need to let me be,” said Ginimbi.
On whether he was battling Prophet Passion, Ginimbi said he was living life his own way and would not be dragged into a battle.
“I am living life the way I have chosen, I have no business competing or fighting against Passion or anyone else. People are free to say whatever they want because social media allows them to do that and that is why you will not see me responding or commenting.
“So those spoiling for fights will be very disappointed,” he said.
