Among the cars auctioned this past weekend was Nigeria’s renowned R&B star Banky W’s 2008 Range Rover Sport. This car is a key part of Nigeria’s pop culture history as it has appeared in more music videos and movies than any other vehicle in Nigeria. The bid for the Range Rover started at N750,000 and it was a keenly contested fight till it successfully closed at N2.3 Million naira. Aimed at raising awareness for two charities of his choice, all proceeds from the car will go to The Pink Oak Cancer Trust and the Vocational School for the Blind.
Bidders responded with so much enthusiasm and excitement and every car put into the auction was sold but not without a tough bidding fight with some cars generating as much as 20 contesting bids. The atmosphere was quite fun and competitive!
After winning this Honda Crosstour at 2.4 million, the crowd went wild and registration numbers increased. Observers couldn’t believe that right in front of them, the third high profile car had been won at such an affordable price.
