These 5 Nigerian monarchs know not only how to rule their state but also how to enjoy life.

1. Oba Fredrick Obateru Akinruntan

Currently ranked the wealthiest man in Nigeria and just a bit behind King Mohammed VI of Morocco in the list of richest Kings in the continent, the estimated total net worth of the Olugbo of Ugbo in Ondo State is around $300 million (equivalent to N108 billion). This King is also running Obat Oil.

That’s why it’s totally understandable when this man threw a fortune for his luxury auto brands. In 2014, he became the first black resident to own a Bentley car model of that year. In the exchange with Daily Post, he also claimed to own a $1 million watch and he was so proud to use the same car brand as Queen Elizabeth II.

Actually, his custom-made Rolls Royce 2012 also has many similarities with the one the Queen of England is having.
