  Hong Kong — Hong Kong singer Jacky Cheung, 59 is known as the “God of Songs” and he is also known as the “God of Property”.

  The Heavenly King is a keen real estate investor, just like many of his celebrity friends. It was reported by the Hong Kong media that Cheung recently put his luxury duplex in The Somerset in Repulse Bay on the market for HK$430mil (SGD74.5mil). The huge 4,655 sq ft apartment is reportedly made up of two duplex units which Cheung combined into one.

  It is reported that Cheung and his wife, former Hong Kong actress May Lo, paid a total of HK$46.3mil (SGD8.1mil) for the two units in 1993 and 2004. Cheung and Lo have been living there with their two daughters, Zoe,20 and Zie, 15 since the apartment was refurbished.

  The family just moved to a new home and are looking to take advantage of the strong property market to sell the apartment. Cheung will earn a cool eight-fold profit if successful.
