Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Fifi admitted it was the first time since her big break into the industry she had a big paycheck like that. “It was the first time that I handled that kind of money,” she told the local publication.

Fifi revealed that she used the money to help finish building her mom’s house, after her brother got married. aww how thoughtful?

“I’m building my mom a house. It’s actually done. My brother started building the house, but then, because he got married, the process of building the house slowed down a bit as he had to focus on his own family.”

The rapper says it’s always been a dream of hers to do something for her mom. “At the end of the day, home is always where you end up. You don’t want to be a star, but end up living in a shack.”
