Speaking to Kiss FM's Oga Obinna on his YouTube channel the "Angella" hitmaker claimed that just one of his silver teeth cost a whooping Ksh 5000 and considering he finally has a full set, you can do the math.

"These are grills but we call them slags... and they make me enjoy smiling a lot," Boutross said excitedly as he went on to show off his teeth.
"It cost a bag.... a big bag, you know one is 5 g so for the entire set that is rent ya mtu Kileleshwa," added the artist as the two burst out laughing.
Doing the math, if he bought all 32 silver teeth that may have cost him a minimum of Ksh 160,000.
