Porsche for Wizkid, LV for Tiwa, Rolex for Yvonne, Birkin for Mercy! Are Nigerian & Ghanaian Stars TOO Boastful?



Believe it or not, there is no business like Showbiz!

We love our Nigerian superstars and how they constantly keep us entertained 365 days 24/7. Of course, through their many skills either in movies, music, TV and radio, the stars cash in some big bucks.

So if you have the money, is it okay to flaunt it?

Today we profile how some stars spend their hard earned cash!

Recently Star Boy Wizkid shared on Instagram, images of his newly acquired sleek Porsche Panamera S. Posing next to the sleek car with a price ranging from $75,000 to $175,000 depending on the spec, the music star said I am “Thankful”

In March, after a “boring afternoon” in South Africa, he went shopping and bought items from Nike, Lacoste and Gap.

Toke Makinwa
While in London for a short vacation in April, Nigerian media personality Toke Makinwa went shopping. She shared the below photo on Instagram asking which of these Gucci Spring/Summer 2013 Collection shoes, to buy at Selfridges. A pair retails for $ 916 on Rafaello Network

Dr Sid
With his latest singles including Talented topping charts, Mavin Records’ Dr Sid is definitely a happy man. Last week, Don Jazzy shared an image of the star’s house (currently under construction) in Lekki, Lagos. Houses and lands in Lekki sell for millions of Naira.

Tiwa Savage
Tiwa Savage is one of Nigeria’s highest paid female musicians. With her Pepsi ambassadorship, the music chanteuse can afford to buy some of the priciest things of life.

On her way to London for a video shoot and of course some shopping, Tiwa rocked a pair of black Louis Vuitton. They retail for $ 400 on Louis Vuitton

Coco Chanel once said ‘The best things in life are free. The second best are very expensive”. Well she was right!

In London, Tiwa hit the stores and bought a range of luxury items from Chanel, Céline, Gucci, YSL, Louis Vuitton and Hermès. These top brands retail from $$$- $$$$$$$.

They don’t call him “Omo Baba Olowo” – Son of a Wealthy Man, for nothing. Since 2010, the Gobe star has carved a niche for himself in the music industry by selling lots of albums and booking numerous shows. In February, the star took to Twitter to share his white Chevrolet fleet, tagging the image “I ain’t got no worries.”

Well from where we stand, you certainly don’t have any worries, Davido. Chevrolet cars retail for millions of Naira.

Oluchi Orlandi

      first mercy’s bags are fake that gold bag is a fake louis vuitton sac plat,her black hermes fake etc fakes fakes,that celine fakest too celines don’t look like that when open so spare us the stress please,well celebs can buy the whole world if they one i know a celeb who wears brand name under wears Dg G and co all brand name shoes and handbags but she will never post a picture of her shopping here and there tweeting to show it off and ironicially people think she is a show off. Her bf is a millionaire and he does sam ehe is not Nigerian but well known you will never see him post a picture of anything he owns but he owns the best cars and home si just think celebrities who show off things they buy with we the masses gave them is like ware you showing off to your bosses lol

    If you have money, enjoy yourself. Dont keep it for a befitting burial. Personally, i would prefer to buy houses and companies. Some of these celebrities use their last cards just to look good,while account swims in red. They may be too boastful in the sense that they post their possessions but really, I dont mind feeding my eyes with the update. Davido’s car is very lovely.

    • Diya

      May 20, 2013 at 1:32 pm

      I don’t necessarily see anything wrong with it. It’s O.K to splurge but wisely, if you’ve worked very hard. It’s a nice reward. It is also a motivation for me to work hard in my field because I want to enjoy my time on earth.
      I like Mercy but she should invest in her hair as well. The fake center/side pattern and rubber scalp on those wigs are horrible. When will black women stop paying and wearing f’d up hair?

    Lol…i actually enjoyed looking through……me i like sha…..mercy i hope its not fake o…if not Ride on girl……if you can genuinely afford it …why not ……although the thought process of them taking the pictures for the specific aim of showing off, especially the pic of yvonnes hand jewellery can be shallow…oh well..

    • Bunmi

      May 20, 2013 at 7:06 pm

      Her “Birkin” bags look like they were made out of colored cardboard paper. Real leather used to make Birkin bags has a particular kind of softness. The way her b. bag folds is not giving me that and I have never seen a real black birkin with silver hardware. It’s usually gold.
      The LV gold bag looks very similar to gold foil paper. The cut of the bag is ridiculous. The materials used to make her fendi and Celine bags look stiff and cheap. why do Nigerians choose to wear fake high end brands with so much pride? It makes them appear desperate to me. It’s better to have a high end brand bag with a great style. Her “style” looks forced, cheap, and all over the place. Bye bye.

As for what she is paid, trust me that has next to nothing to do with what she can afford, thats the case for most girls o! That said, if you’ve got it and you are not within easy reach of kidnappers, flaunt it.

    • gorgeous

      May 20, 2013 at 1:53 pm

      ok first let me give u an example or rather something that is normal,they buy from these lagos big girls stores who go buy from china and go to America and take pictures infront of the stores and come back to Nigeria one most Naija celebrities have never seen the real ones so when these fake shop owners sell to them,they think and believe its real they buy it for like 100-300k and no hermes birkin first sells that low and all these lagos shops i mean all who sell lv,loubs etc are all fake its easy look at the Dafodile louboutin then go look at the ones on louboutin website you will know as for me i hang around girls in yankee who buy real ones so i know,look at he rblue celine bag,the bag doesn’t open like that now go look at at celine bags online or from celebs like kim and all see how it looks when it opens those things are easy to know he rblack birkin gave her away it doesn’t twist like that lol i can go on and on

    Fake or not, Mercy Aigbe looks good. Most of her outfits are really cute. I don’t know why I’m surprised (May the Lord forgive me). On a side note, how does one tell whether these things are fake or not? This is a genuine question. I was wondering myself whether all those gorgeous bags were the real thing. Is it because the originals don’t come in certain colours/shapes so it’s obvious when you see a knock-off that just pastes the label name on a pretty but random bag? Those with keener eyes should explain what the tell-tale signs are.

    For the people asking how to know when to spot a fake ….personally i think if you are a designer fan you just tend to spot the products there is this shine/structure/threading/zippers/something the real ones have, does not work all the time though….its either all mercy s bag are fake or she has a mixture of fake and real…….but personally i would also love to know the technique others use to spot fakes as well…

  34. chichi

    May 20, 2013 at 1:37 pm money ppl, new money..and it is very common with black stars even in the states..once thay have a little, the whole world must know about it..Those ppl that actually HAVE dont talk much but when you see them, you go know (in my flavour’s voice)…what is interesting about nigerian stars when they show off is that they mostly add “baba God” so yall wont get aint mad at them cos when the money finishes(and i hope it doesnt) no one will be knocking on chichi’s door….There is one tacky picture though..and it is Dr sid’s..why engrave your name on your floor, your drive way for that matter? sorry but that is just tacky but i guess to each his own.. Enjoy your money ppl, but be safe cos yall know where you live..

      Mercy’s hubby is very wealthy. I am not exactly sure about the authenthicity of the bags though, especially considering the fact that she has them in many colours, hmmm that’s a lot of money. Anyway even, if it’s imitation, they are VERY well made, i give it to her. #greatstyle#.
      I saw that picture of Toke on instagram, asking for advise on which colour to pick. Did she eventually buy any, cos she never shared the picture of her final pick.

      Yoruba entertainers are well paid(check out a good number of mainstream nollywood actors that deflect)….well maybe not from just acting, most of them produce their own movies, plus her bobo get money.
      I think everybody is just vibrating on Mercy’s case cos she’s a Yoruba (razz) actress. Abeg you need to check out the quality of a lot of these movies and you’d see the world of difference. Yoruba movies use better cameras, have better production and stories too(plus people actually buy the DVDs). So if Mercy can produce a movie with better quality than a movie Tonto Dike acted in, then maybe Mercy just might have more money…..

    Mercy’s bags are soooooooo copy bags. Unless she mixed them wit one original and started making copies from that one. How did she get the money? What kind of useless obssession with Birkin? Since when did Yoruba movies started paying in millions? Who knows her outside the Nigerian shores, even in Nigeria her name doesn’t ring a bell. Or is the money from her husband’s hotel business, how much per night? And why is she taking pictures at the same spot, at the back of her car in her house. They look like same day pictures with the same hair. Even Omotola that has got so much goin on for her, hasn’t got bags worth millions of dollars. Many of these people are money miss road.

    Aunty mercy go charter bags for china. One authentic hermes bag is around $10k and up. Plus, we in the US can tell fakes. Some of the exterior emblems give it away from what the authentic ones look like. And theLV? No comment. But hey, if it makes her happy to carry them, do you!

    • Bold and Beautiful

      May 20, 2013 at 7:42 pm

      If i may ask, what does living in the US, have to do with spotting a fake Birkin. Birkin bags are not made in the US, they are made in France. I live in Paris, (and i am not boasting in any way shape or form,please, just trying to pass a point across). I see these bags all the time, in Hermes stores and even with people around, and i can categorically tell you that Mercy’s bags look very authenthic, at least from these pictures even though they may not necesarily be. You cannot tell from those pictures that they are from China, except if you followed her to buy them. The only argument, i may have against their authencity is that she has quite a number of them, and apart from the fact that is a whole lot of money, Birkin bags are not that accessible, it’s not pure water. It’s quite a process before getting them, especially if you do not live in countries,where Hermes stores are located.

    I don’t think the problem with Nigerian is so much extravagance as it is lack of good financial management.
    Now how anyone spends their money is none of my business but I hope they are planning for rainy days, I don’t believe Dr. Sid’s house is extravagant in anyway shape or form because real estate is investment and the value will only appreciate with time but as for the others each to his/her own but now we know the industry you all in is a fickle one, you are here today a decade or 2 from now you might no longer be relevant so 20 years from now I don’t want to read that we are asking for contributions because someone who was buying hermes and chanel 10 years ago cannot afford good health care now that’s when I will have an issue because no money of mine will go towards such nonesense.

    I wonder about their safety in a country like ours. Why call attention to yourself in a country where the rich are targeted? They’ve worked hard and earned it whether on their feet, back or knees but they need to exercise caution.

    People know they are rich by mere virtue of what they do for a living or who their parents or lovers are (in the case of Davido and Mercy) so the extra show via instagram etc is very unnecessary and actually reeks of insecurity. The people with REAL WEALTH do not feel the need to show it off, actually some go out of their way to NOT reveal that they have that silver spoon.

    I just shake my head at these people people. Nobody takes the wealth with them at the end of their time on earth, I hope they are building their character along with the wealth because when it is all set and done that is what people talk about – your character.

    In general black celebrity culture, whether in Africa, England or America, is materially excessive and conspicuous. It’s almost expected that as you become more famous or wealthy, you not only have to fill the world in on the extent of your success but have to constantly give updates to show that your previous displays of wealth weren’t one-off and the money keeps rolling in. The best way to do that is to wear your wealth.

    Having said that I think there’s absolutely nothing wrong with spending your hard-earned money on the finer things, however I do think it’s in very bad taste to shamelessly flaunt your wealth especially in a country like Nigeria where more than 80% of the people live below the poverty line. They don’t have to give to charity if they don’t want to because at the end of the day it’s their hard-earned cash so they can choose how to spend it, but as I said posting images of your self-indulgence is quite distasteful.

Secondly, some people may have real designer things but because of their total package, they look fake, others may carry fake things and they look rich because of their carriage.

    Celebrities are people and are displaying their purchases just like many other everyday folks do.
    So, it’s nothing out of the ordinary that these certain celebrities choose to display their goodies.

    Not every one finds it tasteful or is comfortable with it, regardless of whether the hash tag reads #Aldo or #Primark or #Zara or #Balenciaga… And that’s fine. I am personally not comfortable with it and don’t hashtag my pics but I sure as hell appreciate those who do. We’re not all the same and that’s what keeps life interesting

    Hmmmmmmm! Some people complain that someone is carrying a fake bag then others complain about spending so much on bags. The truth is china is responsible for the production of nearly all designer bags or clothes. Designers in Europe and America send their designs to china for mass production and after production, they are returned to the designers for sale in their outlets in their home land. So fake or real, they are all coming from the same china, why spend so much on a so called authentic birkin bag, when you can spend less on one that is so close to the original that most people don’t know the difference. Then you can spend the remaining balance on cement blocks for the house you are building. Generally the Blackman has a problem with exhibitionism . That is why they sold their tribesmen to the white man for mirrors, velvet, and corals, the stupidity is still reigning supreme. The white man continues to produce things while the Blackman continues to buy. How much manufacturing is coming from us , not very much and we are still shouting this is real and this is fake. In polite society it is vulgar to show off wealth, especially things that are not investments that bring value to the life of people. Please let us stop this caveman mentality of love for shiny things.

      It is not by force to own a designer bag. You can live without them. I admire people with great style than those with all the designer items in the world but cannot put pieces of clothings together. And have fake hair that really looks fake.
      You do not need to have a designer bag if you have to buy a fake one. That is my problem with Nigerian people. They want to feel among, especially for the most irrelevant things. Mercy looks silly carrying all these different colors of fake bags. Like I said earlier, it screams desperation. Carrying a designer bag doesnt make you a better person, it is nice to have but carrying a fake one makes you look like a clown. Imagine how ridiculous one would look wearing a dress they copied from one of Deola Sagoe’s designs and they are sitting beside someone who’s wearing the real thing. Mercy cannot put any of these “Birkin”/ Celine bags beside for example, Nkiru Anumudu’s Birkin/Celine bag. She knows what’s up now. Besides there are other designer bags she can get for less if she is in dire need of one.

    forget the issue about the place of manufacture if those who bought these bags actually cared about the quality they would buy the same quality and ask the chinese manufacturers to put their OWN NAME. The fact that they are showing it off is simply because the designer name makes them feel important.

    Well , they are all from poor background, so there is still poverty mentality in their mind, it will be very difficult to erase it. Will Ladi Delano, kola aluko, sayyu dantata, kola karim, Obaro Ibru , wale tinubu, tonye cole behave like this, obviously No.

    So it’s not really their fault, majority of them that behave like this never believed they will be able to afford Zara or even river island, my only advise to them is that they should invest wisely, because many musician have come and gone, they did all dis gragra.. But where are them today

    The likes of Felix liberty, Alex O, orits Wiliki, ras kimono, even daddy daddy showkey of yesterday, they are all broke
    Money is like mentholated spirit, as you open it’s getting dry, new artist are coming up daily, and in this business the career for artist are always very short, except for some few..

    So use ur head my brothers and sisters, designers shoes and bags is not investment

    Chai! I nearly missed this delicious post o. Anyway, me I loooove seeing these celeb pix on Instagram….blame it on my materialistic gene hehehe. As a libertarian, I believe if you’ve got it and you want to flaunt it…. HELL YEAH! flaunt it! nobody’s business. Most celebs stunt without cue sef especially Americans soooo kini big deal? BN, leave their boasting o! lol.
    As for Mercy, I can tell most of her bags are really good fakes but then again, who d fok cares? even good copies don’t come cheap… d bags aren’t hurting me in any shape or form so…. who am I to complain? (not that I advocate or support fakes but let’s be real, there are more serious/heart-wrenching issues in the world to have an opinion on). Besides, she mostly looks good and you most definitely can’t put a price tag on that!
    P.S: I love those glads on the Daniella lady and yes! I prefer some absolutely DISGUSTING! Zanottis to Loubies (so played out)….. Thanks for asking, my birthday’s in NOV looool 🙂

Personally don’t think its necessary and I find it tacky to post pictures of yourself at a store carrying a shopping bag. Its just funny to me…. There’s no need make noise about it cos it’ll bring unwanted attention to you. But don’t get me wrong if you have money…..spend am, but again its not everything that is for public consumption abeg

    I hope people know most celebrities abroad them Kim K, Rihanna, etc who post bags, shoes, and the likes actually get these things for free and thats their way of saying thanks to the designer by giving “free” publicity! If Nigerian Celebs are getting these things from free, then allow them “show off” though I doubt its free.. Most of these american celebs spend their hard earned money on reasonable investment stuff like Taylor Swift who just bought a home for $17 Million…..IN CASH! LOL, The girl don’t like debt I guess…

    May 20, 2013 at 11:55 pm

    If you visit dubai..They have a especially location that sell great quality bags for cheaper price. So if an original LV cost 11,500$ for shoes…You will find it there for 350$ – 200$. It doesn’t make sense buying a bag of 11,500$ if you can be wise enough to get a good quality for a cheaper price… People be wise and stop insulting celeb carrying fake bags.

    Mercy is the biggest joker of all time. If you check her Instagram page you will see all her fake louboutins, talk less hermes. Somebody that cannot afford original loubs, how can she dream of 1 birkin. She must be feeling like Victoria beckham buying all the colours, that’s just the biggest give away. Walk into hermes and see if they will even answer you to buy a birkin. At least the other celebs have 6 figure endorsements.

    I wouldn’t know how to spot a fake birkin from a real one to save my life, so I am patiently reading the comments of all the Great Lecturers on this post. Abeg make u na keep teaching people like me how to spot fake ones. The most I can afford is Coach, so I am in Junior League or betta “Inexisting League” when it comes to designer bags loll 🙂

    please,all of you shouting “FAKE” this and that shut the hell up.and so what if it’s fake?can you also afford it?is it by knowing original from fake that makes you are better person?shut up.can some1 in ur fam afford the original or even the fake?pls relax with ur “i too know”attitudes on here.any bag that looks good,go for it,fake or not…is it your money??????let them be…some of them have worked really hard…in as much as i hate show-offs but i kinda respect that it’s what the industry is all about. so,make una knowing the original has done nothing for ur life.hiss

    chai! #174. hate posting at the tail end of a comments list but…

    since we no get paparazzi for this end, they’re paparazzi-ing themselves. our photogs and journalists can barely pay their own rent and publishers know this ish can only sell to a *!* few. so, if the mountain will not come to Mohammed…

    2. dem LV and CC and YSL and whoever else are refusing to look ‘their’ side. so, they need to get their attention. when the designers realise there’s money to be made this-side, they’ll start opening up proper shops and courting our stars.

    3. and finally, [for those of u who think that gospel music’s gone too far… ] hehe. i mean, for those of u who are wondering if this showbiz is worth the sacrifice (and a bit of scandal… and a bit of lack of privacy…) well, they’re here tell you: it is worth it!

If naija had paparazzi culture like usa does, then we wouldnt need our stars to take pics of their enjoyment, in a way it encourages…

    There are many sites online that tell you how to spot a fake. For one, there are no unnecessary folds some sellers like to call “packaging mishaps”. Your designer bags come in a box and if you buy a birkin, no Jupiter will make you put it in your check in luggage. If you look at Mercy’s bags you will notice the cardboard squeezing at the bottom of the bag, the black hermes looks like it was rolled up into a scroll before delivered to her, besides, knowing mercy aigbe to be a voltron, she would have released a press statement clearly showing her receipts of purchase(with her husband confirming the purchase obviously) but no such rebuttals, the poor girl has even deleted her Instagram page…the woes of living in the public eye.

    Danielle okeke’s look legit, its one thing to try the shoes in the store and take a pic, and another to take a corresponding pic outside the store with your shopping bags of course. Her LV is even customised with her initials so i will give her that. The man must be a Limpopo maga for sure.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with buying fake, but don’t go posing like you’re one bad ass bitch, changing designers everyday. Also never ever buy croc skin birkin because that’s just a dead give away.

    *sighs deeply* Seriously guys— We know its fake, she knows its fake! So what’s the point?

    That is to say, we know the bag is fake, she knows it too so what the point of carrying it? For example I love the prada saffiano leather tote the large one (L 40 H 30 W 17 CM) which retails for £1390(large one) but dang! I can’t afford it. Then I saw a similar medium almost like version in Zara for £45 or so. I bought it straight off cos my aim is to get that lovely style/ shape of the prada bag and trust me I do get lots of compliments on my Zara bag. Having said that, it Dsnt mean I won’t get a birkin if I have the money but it must be the original bag. If not let me jejely rock my Zara ,Aldo and bcbg bag with it boldly written on it till I hit it big!

    Abi my people what do you think? I stand to be corrected!

    I’m sure mercy got most of her bags from dele one babe that goes to china to make replicate of designer bags her shop is in yaba , lots of girls patronize her, mercy shouldn’t have taken the pics with her bags sha just saying and I’m not condemning her maybe that’s what she can afford


    May 22, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    Mercy Aigbe, FAKE FAKE FAKE.. Real leather don’t FOLD like it looks in that photo.. yes, some of her things may be real like the GUCCI but the Hermes na FAKO!
    I bet she’ll be uploading a video on YouTube soon, defending her handbags, trying to convince the World they are real.. just like she uploaded a video after rumour spread like wild fire that her hubby was beating her up..
    Now that said, she’s still my favourite Yoruba actress.. Chikena!

    May 23, 2013 at 5:07 pm

    why do we underestimate the earning power of these entertainment people. Lets do some maths. Mercy Aigbe Earns nothing less than one million per movie(yes she does, don’t roll your eyes) . She does about 10/15 movies a year. Also remember that these stars have various endorsement deals. I beg how many of the so called Nigerians in the diaspora earn that much in a year. That’s 60k pounds take home pay. Without the 50% tax rate currently in England. In America that’s like 80kus$.. You know how many school you go need to go to take home that kind of monies in the job market this era. It gets even better when you consider how much the top music stars are making. wizkidd earns about 2.5million at least per show. If he is hard working imagine how many of that money he has been making for the past 4/5 years. You guys need to delete that ‘she is a Yoruba film actress ,she dont have money’ away from your mind. As for the fakeness i for one have a good eye when it comes to these things i think they kind of mix it but i musy say some of those are one hell of a good fakes. Meanwhile why are Nigerians in the Diaspora constantly hating. Noticed that all the negative comments mostly are from Nigerians living abroad. Guys, you can’t be too overcritical about your house when you are so far away.. Just Saying . I don’t like people buying fake things but i must say Nigerians actually prioritize having these things so most actually spend a lot on Luxury items. Why buy Fake. When You can afford it buy the REAL thing.

    Ogberan Dotun, mercy’s cousin.

    Nigerian in diaspora are not hating, most of them can identify fake designers because they have access to the originals and same goes for Nigerians living in Nigerians who collects real designers duh!

    Odeson like you, I get the your frustration , you Cldnt get a visa! Il invite you to the US. Send your details.

    In Uk, take home salary for a lot of Nigerian i know eg, contractors like PMO’s , investment bankers, people in IT amongst others earns upto £90k- 100k a year depending on your position in the company. Even social workers earn a lot of pay. Do your home work. Your family in diaspora are probably Telling you things are hard because you too dey beg for money or they are genuinely comfortable in their underpaid customer service jobs. Don’t even let me get started with USA

    Tell your cousin mercy to try buy originals. The person who sold to her didn’t deny where it’s from and mercy is aware before she bought it. They ae good frnds. And I refuse to mention name and address.

    Don’t forget to send your name etc so I can invite you, il take you round designers stores no worry il take your pictures in front of the stores too. If you behave, il buy you a Tom ford perfume ( na that one I fit afford) you sef don get real designer tinz be that. Holla at your hommie

    This guys worked for the money and re entitled to buy whatever they wish 4 demself.
    Let’s encourage dem and not beef dem for what dey desire/want for dem self.
    Na over enviness dey worry most of una.
    Ask 4 God to bless u and stop being 8as of Good tins,
    Seek God’s kingdom and stop chasing after the wind.All the blings,flashy ride,designer labels and Names u buy will fade away.
    Its only d words of God that will remain and prevail @ d end.

    That’s a lie, we knew, no one is born to be a slave and to paint everyone with a dark skin_ “black people and as a slave” is racist comment both educated and non, That shows your level of thinking. Everyone is born the same. And for the actress that posted all her material to show off, if you are that rich don’t forget to get a permanent roof on your head (not a rented one if that’s true).
