Money makes the world go round

On Wednesday night, the two brothers were put on the spot during the Jeff Koinange Live (JKL) show to reveal what they bought with their first fat pay cheques.

Though previous reports have indicated that the two boys pocket a whopping Sh1 million per week, they shied away from admitting how much they actually earn only remarking 'the money is good enough for myself and the family'.

"I do not know how much it is, the money is just wired to the bank account," Wanyama said jokingly.

Mariga, who plays for Real Oviedo, used his first pay cheque to buy his mother a house. Though he mentions that his first salary was not good enough, he had to sacrifice and give his mother what she had always desired.

"When I used to play for Sweden the money was not that good but with the first salary, I bought my mom a house. She was pressuring me to buy her one," he said.

The midfielder has a penchant for cars and a fleet of luxurious ones are in his possession.

At the same time, Wanyama, aTottenham Hotspur player, used his earning to buy a piece of land where he built his own house.

Grass to grace is what defines these two boys who were raised in the slum area of Muthurwa but are now playing for international football clubs.
