Excitement gripped South Africans when snow started falling and Benjamin Dube was among those who posted videos on social media.

Reverend Benjamin Dube sparked mixed reactions after he tweeted a video showing off snow falling at his home.

In the viral video, the internationally renowned musician also shows his luxurious BMW and Mercedes Benz cars.

Many people have since reacted to the video. While others called him out for “flaunting his riches”, others said he has every right to show off because he earned his wealth.

One netizen tweeted: “Benjamin Dube is a recording artist and has his own church, he is a millionaire from his hard earned work, he can afford any car, he’s no scammer and has a right to flaunt his riches… now him showing [this] on #snow day is a problem. Yet celebrities show off every day. Leave him alone.”
