Ed Sheeran make a move to stop his neighbours from filing noise complaints against him, by spending £4million to buy up houses around him.
The singer said to be worth $160million (£128million) reportedly bought not only the flat above his Notting Hill restaurant, but also the two houses next to his £19.8million mansion in London.
‘ Ed Sheeran neighbours were grumbling about noise before so when he got a chance to buy up the two houses next to his London home, he jumped at the chance,’ a source told The Sun.
‘ Ed Sheeran has not only made a wise investment but is limiting the chance of people grumbling about loud music or parties.’
It was further gathered that he used the same plan for his restaurant in London. These latest purchases have resulted in a property portfolio worth a reported £47million.
‘He also decided to buy the flat above his restaurant because that could have been a massive sticking point for the business going forward.’
This also follows a report of Ed Sheeran and his wife, Cherry Seaborn, upsetting locals after positioning a bunch of hay bales around their controversial ‘pond’ in Sussex. He was granted permission for the pond based on the promise that it was for wildlife, however, neighbours are convinced that’s not the case. It said locals have now nicknamed the area Sheeran-ville because he owns so much property there.
Dont envy a well dressed banker that also drives luxurious cars.
A 42-year-old Kenyan banker, Edgar Otieno was compelled to quit his job at Barclays bank in the East African country to sell pencils in the streets, which he claims he earns more money from than what he used to receive monthly as salary at the bank.
Edgar told Tuko.co.ke that, before he even became a banker, he had been hawking pencils in the streets right from age 25. He would take the pencils in bulk from a certain company and sell on commission basis.
“I was so good at it, that I was named best agent multiple times. When the company folded in 2005, I decided to continue with the job,” he told the news portal.
Edgar his always ready for business in his neatly pressed coperate suit in the streets, selling pencils.
“Some people wonder why I show up every morning sharply dressed yet my work involves chasing after customers and convincing them to buy pencils; in sales, people buy you first before they buy whatever you are selling,” he revealed.
The determined man said that the money he was being paid at the Barclays bank was woefully inadequate for him, hence the decision to quit and make time for what he loves doing best.
Some of his former colleague bankers confirmed that he was indeed a banker, but chose to switch to strict hawking which he enjoys doing unapologetically.
“We worked with him at Barclays Bank, but he quit and went back to hawking. He makes good money,” Jymoh Msema Kweli wrote when photos of Edgar emerge online.
Another one, Bancy Roba said: “I love his heart. One of us poached him for insurance, but he didn’t go for long. He preferred hawking.”
