Getting a Bentley seems to be the new craze among Nigerian celebrities. Just last month, two celebrities announced their purchase of this luxury car. Here is the list of celebrities who can boast of having this wonder on wheels!
1. D’Banj and Don Jazzy
D’Banj and Don Jazzy joined the exclusive league of Bentley owners far back in 2011. The duo were the first Nigerian showbiz stars to own the prestigious auto which is said to cost between N25m to N35m.
Nigerian music star, and car freak, Timaya, also joined the league last year with a 2009 Bentley Continental GT Coupe. According to his manager, it had always been Timaya’s dream to buy a Bentley. So, when the opportunity to buy the car came, he jumped at it. He also needed to separate himself from other Range Rover users. Ouch!!!
3. Aremu Afolayan
The actor and producer who is the younger brother of filmmaker Kunle Afolayan took delivery of a customised Bentley Continental GT car on April 7th this year and shared this photo on twitter to announce it. Rumors trailed him though as people speculated the car was bought by his sugar mummy. But the actor defended himself saying he acquired this luxury with his ‘hard earned money’.
4. M.I Abaga
After being a victim of car theft in Abuja earlier this year, Nigerian Rap star, M.I Abaga proved he is also a ‘chairman’ by purchasing a brand new Bentley like his colleagues. He shared ‘jaw-dropping’ photos of his new ride on his website.
Barely 24 hours after MI Abaga posted photos of his Bentley, rapper 2Shotz took to Instagram to share photos of his. You could almost smell the competition brewing among them.
But really, what is it with celebrities and flaunting their new cars?
