Elon Musk Buys Lovin Dubai For $100 Million


Elon Musk can now add Middle-Eastern media buyer to his resume after it was revealed that the tech-preneur has paid $100 million to acquire an undisclosed stake in Lovin Dubai, a subsidiary of Augustus Media.

The entrepreneur/angel investor who is currently CEO of SpaceX and CEO, and product architect of Tesla purchased Twitter in October 2022 and for the first time is adding a regional media venture to his portfolio with the surprise move to buy the Dubai-based media brand.

“The funniest, most influential media brand the world has never heard of”

Musk, who recently spoke at Dubai Summit, commented on the venture

Lovin Dubai is a news, culture, and lifestyle brand, one of 16 Lovin cities in the region covering local news born in 2015. The site and social profiles totted up 1 billion video views last year, the company doubled its headcount and generated over $7.2m in revenue in 2022. Musk paid $44 billion for Twitter in October, however, the value of the social media platform famous for short-form tweets has dipped to $20 billion according to the latest figures, which raises eyebrows over Musk’s ability to run a successful media brand.
