When most 14 year old kids are busy attending school, playing and getting along with friends of their age, Rashed Belhasa, an Arab kid is a budding entrepreneur with his own show collection.
Rashed Saif Belhasa aka Money Kicks is the son of Dubai construction mogul Saif Ahmed Belhasa, who is one of the UAE’s most successful businessmen.
Despite being just 14 years of age, Belhasa already co-owns a fashion line and grows some exotic pets as well, including lions and tigers.
Celebrities from around the world visit him, so most celebrities who want to stop by (to play with his tigers or check out his shoes) have to make an appointment with his agent first. Despite his hectic schedule, he tries his best to meet as many of them as possible. It is his clothing line KA-1 that he co-owns with Dubai-based model turned actor Ross Mackay that has put him in the limelight. This clothing line is very popular in the celebrity world and is one of the reasons why he gets such high profile visitors.
In addition to managing his fashion empire, Rashed studies at the International School of Arts and Sciences in Dubai. He is also a huge fan of Michale Jordan and owns 70 pairs of Air Jordan shoes, with 15 of them being from the Original (OG) series and the rest from the retro collection.

Rashed is extremely popular on Instagram and YouTube. He who goes by the moniker Money Kicks online, has racked up more than 96,300 followers on Instagram and 77,300 subscribers on YouTube.
