DailyMail UK Lists Popular Yahoo Boys Hushpuppi, Bnaira, & Mompha + Millionaires E-Money & Davido As "Rich Kids of Nigeria"
People are upset that Daily Mail has profiled some of the most notorious (alleged) yahoo boys as 'Rich Kids of Nigeria'. While the actual rich kids - Dangotes, Adenugas, Otedolas, Alakijas, etc - were not mentioned. Even the likes of Kenyan Huddah Monroe and South African Bonang Matheba were listed under Nigerian Rich Kids. Read the full article below.
The rich kids of Instagram never disappoint when it comes to flaunting their extreme wealth on social media. But it's generally young people who hail from the UK, the US and Russia that are known for showing off their private jets, designer clothes and luxury holidays.
Now, however, they've got some stiff competition from the wealthiest young people in Nigeria - Africa's biggest economy - whose exploits are documented by the Richkidsnaija Instagram account.
He owns multiple properties in Lagos and have kitted them out in lavish style with elaborate gold furnishings. His party trick is to spray cash on the guests from a money gun at weddings.
A video from earlier this year, shows him spraying one million Nigerian dollars - the equivalent of £2,500 - on guests at the marriage of actor Mike Ezuruonye's sister.
Louboutins are hugely popular among Nigeria's wealthiest young men with both Hushpuppi and Mompha showing off their huge collections.
"None of you nuisance, noise makers was invited. To God be the glory, it was a successful event and I had a wonderful experience, met worthy people of great class. Of course I made a purchase of one jacket with a huge price tag.
"These jackets are not going to be available for the general public and they will never be made after this event. They are once in a life time exclusive pieces and of course I only like it if it's one of a kind, cos I don't work with crowd mentality and I'm not built to be a champion in a local market."
He's also boasted about spending a million Naira on a new Versace man bag, the equivalent of £2,500.
