A man from Leeds who has made millions from cryptocurrency has 'traded' his car to get hold of the popular energy Prime energy drink.
Wasseem Khan, 20, from Hyde Park has spent the past year driving around in luxury cars after becoming a millionaire at a young age by investing in cryptocurrency. Wasseem has now hopped on the Prime drink bandwagon and has been seen at Wakey Wines paying £5,000 for the drinks and even offering up his car as payment.
In a video posted to TikTok, Wakey Wines owner Mohammad Azar Nazir is standing next to Wasseem with two packs of the drink everyone has gone mad for. Nazir made headlines the other day after announcing he would sell the drink for £100 a bottle.
Nazir introduced Wasseem, known as 'Waskhan' on social media, saying: "Yes Waskhan how you dealing pal? You alright?
"Where have you come from?"
Wasseem says: "I've come all the way from Leeds to buy some prime."
Based on the Wakey Wine costs, Nazir charged him £5,000 for 24 cans. Nazir said: "So that's 24 cans my brother, so that's £5,000."
Nazir then jokingly asks Wasseem how he will pay for the expensive drinks, to which he replies "You might as well take my car."
The two then go outside where his new Audi R8 with his social media handle plastered on the side is sat. Nazir then takes the keys and says goodby to Wasseem.
Last year, Wasseem spoke to LeedsLive about how he made his money after growing up being taught the true value. He finally decided to make it big when he couldn't afford lunch one day.
He said: "I started off young, started off with just my parent’s money, they were not the wealthiest. I went to college, that was just a chill for me.
“Then I found online trading, I started to see good results, it kept going and going.
"Me becoming a millionaire is due to multiple incomes, social media, real estate and others. The best part is that I went from working in Domino's to making an empire for myself.
"I can have luxury cars and luxury homes. I just bought an R8 and it says on the back from Domino's to R8.”
He said the moment it all changed and he set out on this path, was when he couldn't afford to get a cheap lunch with friends. “I went out in college on a lunch break, we went to a local takeaway and I literally didn’t have £3 or £4 to my name and it was so embarrassing that I just told my friends I wasn’t hungry.”
