Would you pay a million shillings to watch a movie? How about a royal wedding? Exactly what would you do with an extra Ksh 1 million?

The money is equivalent to the price of the new model Chevrolet Cruze or two Toyota Probox vehicles, 2009 model, according to Cheki.co.ke, an online marketplace for cars.

A middle-class citizen would even probably rather buy a piece of land with this money. However, this may not be the target market.

Some Kenyans are known to be big spenders: in 2015, former TV siren Cynthia Nyamai was rumoured to have taken up a Ksh. 2million Valentine’s Day package for her partner at Kempinski Hotel in Nairobi.

A year later, the same hotel advertised the same package but upped the price to Ksh. 5.4million. Kenyans were willing to pay big money for a romantic night out.

The prestigious Windsor Golf Hotel and Country Club has advertised to broadcasting the wedding at a cost of Ksh1 million per couple.

Aside from the viewing of the royal wedding, the hotel will also feature a bridal fashion runway to showcase gowns for prospective brides.
