Post update and correction
The stories of riches are dreamy and fascinating, so is of London based Sikh businessman Sardar Reuben Singh, who owns a fleet of Rolls Royce and matched them with his turban color.
Read his story below;
While we struggle to match our tie with our shirt, a London based businessman has taken it all to another level.
Photos of Sardar Reuben Singh matching his turbans to the colour of Roll Royces have been doing rounds on social media leaving many in awe.
Someone made a racist remark against him recently. One thing led to another and a bet was laid between them for charity. The bet was that he could not match his cars to the colour of his turbans for seven days. As evident in the images before you, he managed to complete the challenge. This occurred less than a month ago and culminated in a donation being made to charity.
This prompted Sardar Reuben Singh to match all seven days of the week at work in a Rolls Royce with his turbans.
While in his early 20s, Sardar was hailed as the ‘British Bill Gates’, founding the Miss Attitude teen fashion store in the 90s.
He was force to sell the store for a shocking £1 pound and lost control of his second business, alldayPA, to his parents.
Singh was declared bankrupt in 2007 with debts of over £11 million.
Then between 2007-2017, he worked hard to successfully regain control of alldayPA to once again become the CEO of the company. In 2015 he took back control of the alldayPA.
Today Mr Singh is the CEO and owner of Isher Capital and alldayPA Group that employs over 500 people
Needless to say, this turban challenge has garnered a lot of love on the internet and support and best wishes are pouring in for him from all parts of the world.

He started out young and exhaled well in his business before becoming bankrupt in 2007. Read his story below; Sikhs and royalty go hand in hand, the legends of their exemplary tales are mesmerising enough to leave you cursing your daily 9-5 jobs. One such inspirational story is of a.London based Indian businessman. Sardar Reuben Singh who owned a set of.the famous Rolls Royce matching his turban colour. Legend had it that he challenged an Englishmen who made fun of his turban and told him that he will match all 7 days of the week at work in a Rolls Royce matched with his turban colour. A legendary classic car freak that he was, Singh brought in a host of Rolls Royce and matched them with his turban colour gracefully. While we keep cribbing about not being able to match our Tees and jackets with same colour shoes, Reuben Singh earned enough on his own to build an empire which saw him amass big fortunes. However, it was good only till it lasted as he was declared bankrupt in 2007 after his business fell unprecedently. Termed as the British Bill Gates for his young endeavours as an entrepreneur, Singh accumulated huge wealth with his own ventures and never asked for a share in his father’s already established business. He founded a fashion chain: Miss Attitude, which became widely popular in the 90s Britain. He started out by working over 20 hours in his first ‘Miss Attitude’ store at the age of 17. With the hunger to build an empire for him, he kept striving for more and achieved a lot before being forced to sell out his debt-laden business for a shocking £1 (approx Rs 80) to American financier Gary Klesch. The once abounding media went all gun blazing on Singh as he suffered huge losses and couldn’t pay back loans of over 11million pounds (approx Rs 10 crores). The media also alleged that Singh took the shelter of favoured articles and columns to establish him as an influential business figure. However, the Rolls Royce owner defended himself and floored the rumours suggesting that they are only jealousy based and made to hurt his reputation. Talking about the elite Rolls Royce cars, the brand in itself is a huge name and is famous for rejecting customers who don’t fit in their criteria of being reputed enough to carry a Royce key. Some big Bollywood names who own one of the perfectly crafted beauties are Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra. But certainly, Singh’s impressive numbers can put to shame any other Rolls Royce owner. Though now the elite brand has a number of owners in India, to own a Riyce during the early 2000s was in itself a big feat which Sardar Reuben Singh aced perfectly.
