There are hundreds of cars out there but quite a handful are most preferred by Nigerian celebrities. These most preferred vehicles place their owners in a class of their own, making them stand out from the crowd.
1. Toyota Land Cruiser Prado
As we all know, Toyota is everyone’s favourite automobile and celebrities are not left out on this one. The Land Cruiser Prado is a classy and very unique SUV. It cost within N27,000,000 – N35,000,000 excluding custom charges. This automobile is one of the many owned by the likes of Davido, Tiwa Savage, Banky W and a host of other celebrities.
2. Mercedes Benz G-wagon
If anything, the G Wagon definitely announces that you have made money. The G Wagon should be one of the first cars bought by celebrities to mark their newfound fame and fortune so it will be safe to say that at least 50% of celebrities in Nigeria drive or have driven a G Wagon. The price for this SUV ranges between N70,000,000 to N200,000,000. It all depends on the model you choose to buy. This car is owned by the likes of Wizkid, MI, Davido, DJ Cuppy, etc.
3. Mercedes Benz Cla
Nigerian celebrities, in particular, love the Benz and I don’t think they really mind which type they drive, as long as it isn’t an old model. From the angle of prices, the Mercedes Benz CLA isn’t so expensive as a used CLA costs between N15,000,000 to N18,000,000. But I don’t think a celebrity would want to risk their reputation by purchasing a used car or would they? The Benz CLA is owned by Mayorkun, Bobbyrisky and others.
4. Range Rover Sport Suv
This SUV is pricey to buy and quite expensive to maintain too. It costs between N67,000,000 to N80,000,000 excluding custom fees. Baby doll DJ Cuppy, Davido, etc own this SUV.
A while back, celebrity actress Tonto Dikeh announced that she was getting a Bentley and many people didn’t take it kindly with her as they said she was lying. The actress however went ahead to prove them wrong as she purchased the automobile which costs about N170,000,000.
6. BMW SUV
BMW isn’t a car you’d find so commonly on the streets of Nigeria. It seems that is why the beautiful Nancy Isime purchased this SUV. It costs between N23,000,000 to N30,000,000 depending on the model and the dealer you are getting it from. In all, this car makes a statement when on the street.
7. Chevrolet Camaro
I really don’t think Nigerian celebrities are all about expensive cars. It seems they just want cars no one has but themselves because the price of a Camaro is between N13,000,000 to N17,000,000. But hey, this isn’t the only car parked in their garage. This vehicle is owned by musician Zlatan and a few others.
8. Lexus GX 460
Celebrity musician Timaya has managed to stay relevant in the Nigerian music scene for over a decade. He is amongst the few who have managed not to fade away and he has also kept his garage up to date with the Lexus GX 460 which cost about N42,000,000.
9. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars
This definitely had to make it to this list. It is owned by the likes of Disk Jockey Cuppy and Nigerian footballer Alex Iwobi. It is speculated that the automobile costs about N200,000,000.
Owned by the king of Marvin music group Don Jazzy, and many others. This vehicle costs about N150,000,000.
Well, this is proof that there is a lot of money to be made in the Nigerian entertainment industry, if not, how are these guys riding such expensive automobiles?
