The rich have many ways to show off. Buying cars is one of such ways but they are Nigeiran celebrities that really love cars and buy them for their true passion!

It is always expected for a Nigerian celebrity to drive around in an expensive show car because that is what you want to see but you forget that they are also human beings.

There are some very rich Nigerian celebrities that don't like cars at all and just ride around in a car because they need to move from one place to another but the wristwatch they wear could cost the worth of 3 luxury cars. There are also Nigerian celebrities that love cars so much with all their hearts and those are the people we are going to be focusing on today.

8 Nigerian Celebrities that love cars so much more than money!

1. Burnaboy 

Burnaboy is one of the most successful artistes on a global scale to come out of Nigeria. From his music, we can see that he really loves cars. The biggest hit of his African Giant album was 'YE' where he sang about G-Wagon and Bentley in the hook. At that time, he had these two cars, then he added a Range Rover HSE 2016 to his garage.
