Very humble beginnings… My dad was an auditor. Then he got bored and decided to open a trading store. But it didn’t go so well… he was unemployed, forever… My mom was a nursery school teacher… I used to pack shelves at Pick n Pay… We were short of a lot of stuff… I ended up working in a butchery…— Darren ‘Whackhead’ Simpson
I bought two apartments – one for each of my kids… This is going to secure their school fees… they’ll have an asset at the end of it… I’d like to think I’ve secured their school fees forever…— Darren ‘Whackhead’ Simpson
Going broke [scares him], because I’ve been there. I’ve lived in a garage twice in my life. I’ve lived in a caravan twice in my life… That’s what motivates me. To never ever go back there…— Darren ‘Whackhead’ Simpson
