Just weeks ago, former Senator Dino Melaye was heavily criticized for his ostentatious lifestyles, among which is the amount of cash splashed on acquiring his luxury cars. These cars according to Speed Darling would have cost him over a billion naira.

No doubt, Dino Melaye is among the best car collectors in Nigeria and he publicly admitted after the recent criticism that he would rather acquire cars than spending his cash on cocaine.
