- Just how much money do Nigerian musicians earn?
- According to Reekado Banks’ latest purchase, these musicians are bringing in major cash!
- The Mavin superstar is definitely living the good life
These are indeed the best of times for Nigerian musicians. Wizkid is flying the flag abroad, Davido is showing Nigerians that he is still a force to reckon with, Tekno is enjoying a resurgence, Olamide has attained legendary status and everyone in Mavin Records is doing well.
And it’s a member of the Mavin crew that necessitated this article. Reekado Banks recently splurged on a new car a Lexus SC 430 and if not for upcoming musician Skiibii, NAIJ.com would not have noticed.
Skiibii was the one who posted a photo of the new car on his Instagram page congratulating Reekado on his new toy. A quick search by NAIJ.com revealed that the car is worth $68,405, convert that to Naira using today’s exchange rate and you’ll get N21.5million.
Here’s how Costowl.com described the car:
This is the convertible for the luxury car enthusiast. Fun, performance, style; this car has it all. This Lexus convertible delivers two things in massive portions; luxury and performance. With a modern styling that would make James Bond sell his BMW, this eye catching design is sleek, aerodynamic, and graceful.
Performance is not a secondary priority on this vehicle. It's packed with all kinds of driving luxuries in addition to style luxuries. The steering is a computer controlled speed sensing steering system, progressive power assisted rack-and-pinion steering that provides great feedback from the road. 18 inch alloy tires also help provide great feedback and keep the driver well connected to the road. The automatic is controlled by an automatic transmission with advanced features that can even remember the way someone drives to provide the smoothest shifting possible!
Congratulations to Reekado!
Iyanya recently told NAIJ.com his reasons for joining Reekado and others at Mavin Record. Watch him below:
