Last year it was reported that the Maybach that Kanye West and Jay-Z wrecked in their ‘Otis’video would be auctioned off to raise money for charity. It has been announced that the auction will take place on March 8th to raise money for Save the Charity to benefit families in East Africa.

A press release from Simon de Pury of auction house Phillips de Prury and Company said:

“They have greatly contributed to the artificial barriers between art, music, fashion and cinema to come down. Their video for ‘Otis’ became an instant classic. The Maybach they have transformed for it has the starring role.”

Carolyn Miles, President and CEO of Save the Children said:

“The funds raised from auctioning off the ‘Otis” car are greatly needed to help sustain families over the next several months. We are grateful to Jay-Z and Kanye West for offering up pop culture history to do good for children in Africa.”
