Technically speaking, we haven’t really seen any of the popular yahoo boys in Ghana or Nigeria that have ever come out to say he does “Yahoo Yahoo” for a living. However, we have many times seen some yahoo boys arrested with a bunch of super-expensive luxury cars worth millions of naira that they probably can never explain how they are able to afford them legally. In this article, we will blow your mind as we reveal some of the richest yahoo boys and their cars below.
There has hardly ever been any time that EFCC arrested Yahoo boys without recovering numerous luxury cars from them
1. List of richest yahoo boys in Nigeria and their cars
Before proceeding further in this post, we will like to first put out a disclaimer that none of the individuals mentioned below has been officially labeled by any law enforcement agency as a Yahoo Boy. However, none of them has ever shown legal proof of owning a registered company, job, or any other confirmed source of income to back their flamboyant lifestyles. Hence, the reason why most Nigerian media outlets tag them as “Yahoo Boys” or sometimes “Big Boys”. So, let the show begin!
1.1. Ray Hushpuppi
There is hardly any Nigerian “Big boy” or Yahoo boy that can easily compete with Ray Hushpuppi and win in terms of a special taste for expensive luxury rides. Many Nigerian blogs have reported several times that Hushpuppi is undeniably the richest among all popular Nigerian Yahoo boys.
Hushpuppi recently wowed his Instagram followers by showing off his newly acquired 2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV worth ₦117.2million
With over 2.3 million Instagram followers, one cannot but reckon that Hushpuppi is indeed one of the most well-known Yahoo boys in Nigeria if not the most popular of them all. And just like every other Yahoo boy, he often shares photos of his flamboyant lifestyle on social media and regularly shows off when he buys an expensive new car with receipts of payments sometimes.
Below is a list of just a few of Ray Hushpuppi’s cars that we know of;
- Range Rover Sport SUV
- Rolls-Royce Wraith (Sedan & Coupe)
- Range Rover Vogue
- Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon SUV (₦45 million)
- Mercedes-Benz Maybach S650 (worth ₦72million)
- Bentley Bentayga (worth ₦84million)
- Ferrari 488 GTB (₦92.4million)
- Ferrari 458 Italia (worth ₦150mllion)
- 2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV (₦117.2million)
While some people might still want to argue about Ray Hushpuppi’s wealth, the FBI and Interpol recently arrested the young billionaire alongside 3 others over an alleged ₦13.6 billion ($35million) fraud case in Dubai.
After Hushpuppi, the only other Nigerian “Big Boy” that is very popular and shows off a lot on social media is Ismaila Mustapha p.k.a Mompha. He currently has about 917,000 followers on Instagram and boasts of being the CEO of Mompha Bureau De Change, which many folks claim is “fake” and unregistered. The immense wealth of this young billionaire is evident in his unique taste of extremely expensive luxury rides; some of which include:
- Chevrolet Tahoe (₦17.8 million)
- Range Rover SUV (₦32.1 million)
- Mercedes AMG G63 (₦53.1 million)
- Lamborghini Huracan (₦73.6 million)
- Mclaren 650s (₦95.5 million)
- Ferrari 488 Spider at (₦108 million)
- 2018 Rolls-Royce Wraith (₦119.3 million)
- Lamborghini Aventador (₦151 million)
- 2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith Eagle VIII (₦162 million)
No one can take a look at Mompha’s car collection without realizing that he has a unique taste for luxury rides
Following Mompha’s trend of cars over the years, we have realized that he probably isn’t one of those guys that are interested in some of the common cars driven by Nigerian yahoo boys but instead only top-notch, unique luxury rides.
1.3. B Naira
Adewale Adebayo is popularly called B-Naira and he is one of the controversial Nigerian Yahoo boys/musicians that is well known for lavish spending. His excessive display of wealth both before and after he joined the Nigerian music industry has always raised debates about where he is getting all the money.
B-Naira isn’t really much popular in the social media space as a “Yahoo Boy” unlike Hushpuppi and Mompha, but he is certainly well-recognized in the music industry as a successful singer. And as for his Yahoo boy lifestyle, he also likes showing off expensive cars, clothing, and other properties once in a while. B-Naira reportedly bought a 2016 Toyota Prado SUV worth ₦18 million as a valentine gift for his mother back in 2018. But that is nothing compared to the expensive Ferrari sports car, Cadillac SUV, and many other cars he has in his garage.
B-Naira seems to have a special place in his heart for red-painted cars and red-colored wears
1.4. Baddy Osha
Badmus Akeem p.k.a Baddy Osha is another wealthy and popular Nigerian “Yahoo Boy” that is known for an extravagant lifestyle. Many sources claim that he has worked with Toyin Abraham and many others in the past as a movie actor. Similarly, he has been many times hailed by popular Nigerian musicians like Olamide, 9ice, and Lil Kesh in their songs.
Baddy Osha is probably one of the “lowkey” yet extremely wealthy Nigerian yahoo boys because once in a while, he does show off his expensive cars and properties. We have seen photos of him a few times, posing with some exotic luxury cars like Mercedes-Benz C-Class luxury performance cabriolet, Range Rover Evoque SUV, and many others.
Baddy Osha doesn’t make much “noise” like other Yahoo boys but people often claim that he is extremely wealthy
The real name of this young wealthy Nigerian is Oluwasegun Akinola Opaogun but he is popularly known as Opa6ix. He has many times been praised in popular songs from top Nigerian dancehall artistes like Small Doctor, 9ice, and Reminisce. He is one huge fan of luxury cars and he sure has the money to afford many of them, so that he sometimes shows off to his fans and followers.
Opa6ix is usually praised by many Nigerian dancehall artistes for being rich and benevolent
2. Frequently asked questions about Yahoo boys
Nigerian elders usually say “Knowledge is wealth”; this is why we try our best to educate people and prevent them from getting scammed through our website or any other online buying and selling platforms. Sometimes last year, we already published a comprehensive post that reveals quite a lot of information about yahoo boys WhatsApp group, Yahoo boys format, yahoo boys app, news, websites & more. But to give a quick recap and update; below are brief answers to some of the frequent questions people usually ask about Yahoo boys;
2.1. How Yahoo boys operate
This is basically just the same as asking how yahoo boys scam people or how does yahoo boys work?
First of all, you have to be aware that the top successful Yahoo boys do not operate alone or use one single method to scam people. These evil perpetrators usually operate as a group or a large network of like-minded people with different roles in their scamming business. They use different “formats” in scamming people and some of their popular formats include;
- Impersonation or Phishing
- Offering to sell expensive items at ridiculously cheap prices
- Offering to sell imported products like Tokunbo cars at cheaper prices by claiming to be traders or dealers operating from land borders
- Running fake Advertisements to lure vulnerable people
- Social Media dating using fake identities
- Posing as Nigerian Customs officers sneaking to sell seized items at cheaper prices
- Bank Credit/Debit card details theft
2.2. Why yahoo boys use iPhone mostly
Well, this has quite a number of things to do with how yahoo boys were caught in the past. Yes, most of the top Nigerian Yahoo boys typically do not use Android phones because they love staying anonymous when operating online. In a nutshell, iPhones typically enhances their anonymity and makes tracking them a bit more difficult due to the higher level of internet security offered by the device. Android phones, on the other hand, run an operating system that is “open source” – meaning law enforcement agencies can easily gain access to higher-level files from network providers to track it. So, you see that Yahoo boys aren’t really as “DUMB” as most Nigerians use to view them which is why they still getting away with huge frauds almost every day.
Speaking of Nigerian big boys, you will be surprised that some of the cars owned by the above rich yahoo boys can actually buy hundreds of most luxury cars EFCC has recovered from smaller Yahoo boys over the years. Yes, that’s right; “level pass level”.
You can easily confirm our above claim by watching the video below to see the “cheaper” cars that EFCC recently impounded from some “smaller” yahoo boys;
