The 'Loyal' hitmaker slapped down R4.8 million for the Rezvani Tank "several months ago" but he had to wait for it to be ready as he wanted it custom-made so that it can withstand multiple beatings from weapons.

According to TMZ, the plush vehicle also comes with smoke screens, thermal night vision, electric door handles to shock intruders and an easily deployed spike strip. 

This isn't the first time the 29-year-old singer has whipped out his chequebook for the finer things in life as he reportedly parted with R411 000 so that he could throw his four-year-old daughter Royalty an extravagant birthday party in May. 

The kids' bash saw everyone from Jasmine to Cinderella making an appearance - including the latter's Fairy Godmother, while musician Tone Stith agreed to perform.

And it wasn't just the entertainment Chris went all out on as the adult guests tucked into a menu featuring crab cakes, shrimp tempura and California rolls, while the kids enjoyed burgers, mac and cheese, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Proud dad Chris has grown close to his daughter since she was born four years ago, and he has said in the past how much of an impact she's had on his life.

Back in 2015, the star claimed he had been changed for the better by fatherhood, and explained that Royalty, whom he has with Nia Guzman, "mellows" him out.

Speaking on Ryan Seacrest's radio show at the time, he said: "It's actually great. It's very humbling. You know, it's very calming.

"I think I was a lot, you know, rambunctious, very hyper as a kid but now seeing that 10 times over, my daughter's kinda like mellowing me out."
