Bongani Zungu born October 9 1992, celebrated his 27th birthday in glitz, class, style and glamour.
The Amiens SC and Bafana Bafana star Zungu has an eye for high fashion that transends even his choice of automobiles.
The French based superstar was this week withdrawn from the Bafana Bafana squad to face Mali in an international friendly due to a nagging injury.
Zungu on 29 caps for Bafana Bafana will have to wait longer for his 30th cap neither can he add to his 4 goals in the national team.
The former University of Pretoria and Mamelodi Sundowns box to box midfielder flaunted a Range Rover priced at around R970 000 and BMW M4 valued at R1.3 million.
The former Amatuks man has an elegant taste for wheels matches his automobile finesse with high fashion sense.
Zungu’s haute couture includes brands such as Gucci, Givenchy and Christian Dior which he is always spotted wearing inclusive of his boot sponsor Nike,
The prized midfielder who was also on the books of Portuguese side Vitoria de Guimaraes was spotted wearing a high quality and expensive Gucci T-shirt that has a price of some R4 500 in August and a R7 000 Christian Dior T-shirt on his birthday outside a top-notch high class hotel.
Zungu probably derives his huge fashion sense from his French base. France especially Paris is heavily regarded as part of the Big 4 fashion capitals of the world alongside Milan, New York and London.
Fashion in France is an important aspect in the spectrum of culture and social life and Zungu seems to have taken that to heart as shown by his stylishness and urbanity both on the road and in social spaces. On top of the fashion Zungu is also enjoying his football.
“As a player you want to see yourself grow in the game by competing with the best in the world. France has certainly been good to me. I’m very humbled by the support in France, our fans are always there whether we lose or win, they come to the stadium in numbers. Now I am used to French football and I am looking to grow and spread my wings,” said Zungu in an interview.
The midfielder always has refined quality of gracifulness and good taste since moving to the bright lights and fast lane of European football.
