Meet Roman Abramovich – a Russian billionaire and owner of Chelsea Football club worth over ₦4.5 trillion
The lifestyle of the Russian billionaire shows that he is definitely not one who is shy to spend huge amount of his wealth on luxury private jets, mansions, cars and yachts.
Roman Abramovich is a Russian Oligarch that is currently estimated to be worth over ₦4.5 trillion ($12.5 billion), and he is a proud owner of one of the world’s tech-filled and largest superyacht ever.

This gigantic beauty of the waters named “the Eclipse” was built by the German shipbuilders Blohm+ Voss in Hamburg and it costs a whopping ₦181 billion ($500 million). The interior and exterior of the superyacht were fully designed by the award-winning studio Terence Disdale.
