BN Bytes: What’s It About Celebrities & Their New Cars? Obafemi Martins’ Porsche Cayenne, Timaya’s Bentley & W4’s Chrysler 300

Almost every week, we get an email about a Nigerian actress or Nigerian musician and their brand new car.



Super Eagles Star Obafemi Martins' with his brand new Porsche Cayenne

Almost every week, we get an email about a Nigerian actress or Nigerian musician and their brand new car. These emails are usually accompanied by a photo of the star posing next to a Range Rover (the most popular choice for now).

Here is the new crop! Super Eagles Star Obafemi Martins‘ Porsche Cayenne, Egberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa Timaya‘s Bentley & “Control-er” W4‘s Chrysler 300.

We have to admit that there is something oddly fascinating about it! Living the Nigerian dream?

    No wonder they get broke at the drop of a hat. Make proper investment not to buy cars that can get stolen or be involved in an accident. Safe guard ur future, You can’t sing or play football forever.

      I agree to an extent. I think that anyone regardless of how much you earn should invest in safeguarding their future, whether its saving for your childrens education, a trust fund etc etc, however there is nothing wrong with spending your money the way you wish on luxuries. I think its all about being wise with your money……… Remember a fool and his money are easily departed!

    The truth is all men love cars, i’am sure we have all experienced our bouyfriends or husbands turn into little kids when they buy a new car even if its a Kia lol. These guys are just fortunate enough to be able to afford these, its the same way most women will buy shoes and bags with any disposable income. By the way i’am sure they have a fair amount invested but at the same time there are certain things one can only enjoy during their youth so they should enjoy the fruits of their labour.

    So when we’re calling luxury cars we’re actually putting Chrysler 300 and Bentley in the same category? come on.

    Putting a cryslet 300 with those cars is an insult… That car is less than $25k brand new

    • olah

      February 23, 2012 at 9:11 am

    Its all so tacky. Not getting the cars is tacky but for it to be “cool” news for them. Like i know Chris Brown and Denzel Washington are rich but I don’t know what cars they drive. And we certainly don’t see them posing with them like for a planned picture.

    • miss t

      February 22, 2012 at 9:59 pm

      Errr But i’m sure when Chris Brown and Denzel get a new car they can stand and take pictures with it because they are excited, that is if they want to. The fact that this has been published on a top Nigerian website is coincidental. The quality of the pictures does not necessarily scream ‘planned photo shoot for publicity purposes’ to me and they (Chris and Denzel) are Americans we are Nigerians, so why should we even compare? No offense just sharing my own opinion.

    Whatever i believe they are enjoying their hardwork. Though i am not a car freak but i still wish them well.

    There’s nothing bad in getting a new toy. The tacky part is sending an e-mail to a blog about. That’s hardly good PR. Who are their publicists???

    February 22, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    There’s nothing wrong with em or anyone buying whatever their please with their money. besides, while condemn their luxury and investments. They worked hard for it. There’s a lot of American artist who spend their money lavishly on material things like: cars (Ferrari, Lamb,) etc…. Are they better than our Nigerian artist. Y’all cut them some slacks… Stop hating and be happy for em. Am sure they are investing their money on other things as well. As long as God keeps one alive revenues will still come regardless. MORE PERFORMANCE/CONCERT/FOOTBALL LEAGUE=MORE MONEY…. AFRICAN LIKE TO JUDGE AND DOWNGRADE PEOPLE…

    @ Twix dearie “no investment is reliable”. I have seen & heard of pple who made solid investments & all came crashing in just a single hit; all their life’s toil down d drain. so I’d really recommend d enjoy d life tin; 2moro is nt guaranteed. Also dnt get me wrong I’m not saying dnt invest; I’m simply saying “unless d lord builds a home, the builders build in vain”.

    Nigerians generally are getting used this. Even America does not use cars the way we do. Everyone rushes to buy expensive cars with zero investment. Nonesense! See the best advice for them at
