Fall from Grace: Millionaire Businessman Nico Matlala Now an Uber Driver
Nico Matlala, once a flashy and extravagant entrepreneur, has experienced a major change in his fortunes, now earning his living as an e-hailing driver in the Gauteng area. His story resembles the riches-to-rags tales we often witness on the popular TV show “I Blew It.”
A Glamorous Past with High-Profile Connections
In his prime, Matlala was a familiar face alongside media stars like Palesa Madisakwane and actress KB Motsilanyane. He had a tumultuous relationship with businesswoman Lebohang Mabe.
Life has certainly brought this once high-flying businessman back down to earth. These days, you’ll find him behind the wheel of a white Hyundai i20, known as “P Nico” on his In-Ride profile.
In his prime, Matlala was known for showering women with extravagant gifts, ranging from high-end handbags to luxury vacations. He spared no expense on bottles of fine French champagne, always eager to put on a show. His wardrobe was filled with the finest Italian brands, such as Gucci and Giorgio Armani. And to add a final touch of luxury, he flaunted his collection of pricey timepieces.
The flamboyant ladies’ man wasn’t shy about donning designer sunglasses and juggling multiple relationships at once.
