- Did you know it was a watch that caused the recent fight between Hushpuppi and Phyno?
- And it’s not just any watch
- This particular watch is said to cost over N39 million
Many are aware that internet big boy Hushpuppi and rapper Phyno are currently at loggerheads. But few are aware that the beef started all because of a watch.
Hushpuppi had initially called out both Iceprince and Phyno for wearing what he called a fake Patek Phillipe watch. Both Phyno and Iceprince have since answered Hushpuppi. With Phyno saying he doesn’t need to show off a watch because he doesn’t live for Gucci.
Well, according to musician Tunde Ednut, the watch is said to be worth $125,000 (N39, 000,000) (£96,000).
Also, according to Wikipedia, Patek Phillipe is considered by many experts and aficionados to be one of the most prestigious watch manufacturers. Past owners of Patek Philippe watches include Pope Pius IX, Queen Victoria, Victor Emanuel III of Italy, Christian IX of Denmark, and Albert Einstein.
In fact, one Patek Phillipe watch was bought by Sheikh Saud Bin Mohammed Bin Ali Al-Thani of the Qatari royal family for $11 million. He later sold the watch at Sotheby's Geneva Auction on November 11, 2014 for a record breaking $24 million.
Phyno and Hushpuppi may not have started earning enough to start wearing million dollar watches, but their recent fight has put them on the map.
