If you thought celebrities, government officials and royalties were the only ones with the privilege to own so many exotic cars, it’s about time you had a rethink. A Nigerian man named Ikenna Ronald Nzimora revealed on Twitter that his late uncle, Victor Okafor, who was popularly known as Eze Ego, which means “King of Money” in English Language, had over 100 cars at the time of his death in 1999.
The man claimed his uncle had over 100 cars
Owning over 100 cars may seem unrealistic to many people, but if you have the sort of money Eze Ego had, you’d create your own reality in line with the size of your bank account.
Some expressed doubts but the man confirmed
Victor Okafor was a successful businessman by all standards. He owned the classiest cars at the time and big houses in choice areas. Understandably, he was famous for his flamboyant and extravagant lifestyle.

Back in the day, there was no social media yet in the country. But he dominated the tabloids, as publishers couldn’t stop publishing all about his wealth and spending habits. According to sources, he spent money like it was going out of fashion. If it was to be in today’s social media era, the money-spender would have given Nigerian celebrities and politicians a run for their money when it comes to showcasing wealth online.
It was his custom to celebrate his birthday lavishly every year. On his way to his village to celebrate his birthday that year, unfortunately, he was killed in a ghastly car accident on December 25, 1999.
Victor Okafor was well known for his lavish lifestyle
There were speculations about the sources of his wealth. People had different opinions. But one thing certain was that he had a lot of money to last for years. Eze Ego may have lived a short life, but stories of his wealth are still on the lips of many people.
