What Next…G650? D’banj adds the Aston Martin Vantage to his fleet | Jim Iyke shows off his muscles & 2 New Cars!



Dear up-and-coming star,

Congrats on your breakout hit and endorsements.
We know that you have seen recent photos of D’banj with his 2011 Aston Martin Vantage which reportedly cost over $200,000 and photos of Nigerian actor Jim Iyke showing off his muscles and his exotic cars.

This may tempt you to run to the nearest GTBank and withdraw all the funds you received from performing on the XYZ company’s tour and the pre-payment for your performance at their annual Christmas concert then run to the Coscharis to order the brand new Range Rover Evoque to ensure that you are the first star to “cop” one.

After all, once you place the photo as your BB profile pic, someone will leak it to the blogs and we will all know you are a bad guyz.

Sounds like a plan?

It’s a risky move though because you don’t know if your new track is going to be a hit and you may spend the next few months squatting in your girlfriend’s flat and everything goes downhill from there.

On second thought, maybe you should just got for it so we have something interesting to add to BN Bytes 🙂

On a serious note though, D’banj and Jim Iyke can do this because they both have solid investments in real estate, business and thriving careers.

Let’s keep working hard and focus on our priorities! Our time will come.

Dban'j with his Aston Martin Vantage

Jim Iyke - Muscles + Cars

Jim Iyke with his new rides - Plymouth Prowler & Camaro SS

      Whatever! I’m with Nneka on this one. Money can’t buy class.
      He’s probably worked hard and can afford to splurge on cars. Good for him.
      Doesn’t change the fact that flaunting it on twitter reeks of self esteem issues. Distasteful!

    Nice one!! Congrats D’banj and Jim Iyke. Don’t forget to help repair the roads too 🙂 not that it concerns you – . Also $200k is the manufacturer suggested retail price – the car looks used and the model is in the range of 58-100k Used . Not that it matters to me jus saying – #One

      Itk you are right on the cost of the car, both guys have done well buying cars of this class.
      The Aston Martin isn’t a 2011 model, journalists should be precise in their reports o! The chevy camro is a 2011 one. The plymouth I would say could come free bcos, it’s a dead car you would for sure want to get rid off “ask Ali baba”
      As per roads, roads are actually fair enough in my area and also prime area these bros stay.

    Jim Iyke has a penchant for buying rubbish cars. D’banj congrats on that beautiful car.

    • Whal

      October 31, 2011 at 5:34 pm

      Camaro SS a rubbish car? Until you show your own, your ignorance needs to be “IGNORED”. I can’t believe poor people like you still have the mouth to speak.

      I agree ohhh help the needy….

    • MISSY

      November 1, 2011 at 1:00 am

      ERM abeg you guys should hold it there! bikonu im all for giving back to the society but they are not obliged to do so! geez its their money and they can decide to spend it however they choose to! btw what is ur govt doing to help the needy or rather what are you doing to help the needy? you have the leverage to spend ur money however you choose to and they don’t? pls be real 😛

    • Sassy

      November 1, 2011 at 5:05 am

      @ Missy true they have the right to spend the money has they deem fit, but what joy does it give them if they cannot make the larger society better? ‘Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country’. It is not government all the time, education is empowerment! Between these two they can make meaningful impact in educating at least 50 kids (make that a ripple snowball effect) and see how the larger society benefits. These so called celebrities should also learn some form of leadership and giving back!!!

    okay, so someone took the time out to climb on top of tree and take Jimmy’s picture?!

    This is random but I read the caption as Jim Iyke – (minus) muscles + cars….hehehehe

    • partyrider

      October 31, 2011 at 4:42 pm

      Lol @ climbing tree..its probably from the balcony 🙂

    • Ginika

      November 1, 2011 at 1:17 pm

      Nope, Nope, Nope… after ‘kurrrrfully’ examining the pic, there are no balconies and this looks like town houses, hence similar designs. So na tree the persin climb.

    Errrm… they are not your government, neither have they claimed to run charities. Errm, keep your suggestions as to what a man should do with money he earned from the sweat of his brow to yourself.

    Pay your taxes, elect people who will stop robbing you blind, do your bit to make your country better and get off your high horses cos someone chooses to spend HIS own money as he pleases!

      Wat is killing Nigerians is jealousy. Imagine Nneka sayng Jim Iyke is local, he is a nigerian like u but u cn neva appreciate dat. The money he used in buying those is his sweat, he didn’t stil it. Assume he stole it nigerians would av said a lot of thngs. Dbanj and Jim Iyke, u guys try, i gbadu una swag

      Why are you so bitter? “interesting” is a subjective word. It’s their prerogative to put up whatever they deem appropriate for their site.

    I really dont see why they should suddenly be laden with the repair of bad roads…why dont u save ur money and tar ur streets!!! Do u ask all the foreign stars to repair their roads each time they get a luxurious ride? do u know what other ways they give back to society Pls! Congrats to Jimmy n Dbanj…we will indeed get there.

  31. Busayo Olupona

    October 31, 2011 at 6:05 pm

    I think the reference to road repair actually makes sense. Sure stars in other countries are not being asked to tar their streets. But I have to say taking an Asto-martin down one of these horrendous lagos roads is idiocy, its terrible for the car and its unfortunately that Nigerians have continued to live with these road conditions for as long as i can remember at great cost.

    • Bamboo

      November 2, 2011 at 10:29 pm

      I understand DBANJ, but where and how did JIM IYKE get the money from??? How much are Nollywood actors paid??? I am not an an enemy of progress but I hope for their own good these guys are are not into something dodgy like, fraud, blood money, science, drugs… Naija young men these days are so so so desperate for flashy things. Or maybe the cars were rented!

    October 31, 2011 at 11:26 pm

    U guyz are missing the point of this article! This seems like an indirect “dig” at a chocboy (iceP) who just bought a range rover! LOL.I hail o bella naija. Love it


      November 1, 2011 at 11:46 am

      Hi Ronnie, this is definitely not a dig at Ice Prince. Ice Prince is a successful artist with several hit singles and a hit album, he can certainly afford a Range Rover and deserves to splurge after all the hard work he has put into his craft and career.

      The article was just a tongue-in-cheek piece to encourage our BN fam not to be discouraged or swayed by societal pressure and keep striving.

    Congrats DBanj n Jim Iyke. Lets alway wish others what we wish 4 ourselves. In my opinion, I feel these guys have worked hard n they deserve to reap the benefits of their years of hardwork. They’ve made themselves more competitive by reinventing and positioning themselves as enterpreneurs n businessmen. Whatever they choose to do with their money is their choice, at least they didnt ask anyone to contribute to purchase the cars. Lets learn to appreciate our own. These r young men that r doing us proud. No matter what anyone writes here it would not change d fact that they own these cars. C’mon ASTIN MARTIN. R u kidding me? How many have u seen in Lagos or Nigeria?
