Let’s Do 2012 Recaps: Artistes Who Acquired New Rides
Luck seems to be shining on Iyanya Mbuk and he says he’s grateful for it. After the Project Fame West Africa (season one), Iyanya who emerged the winner moved into his newly acquired Lekki home in July 2012. With his hit song “Kukere” in December 2011, he followed up with a befitting car – a Ranger Rover Sport SUV worth about 12 million naira in September, that he was reported to have bought for close to N12M. Iyanya himself released the pictures of the car. Yes, he was beyond excited!
Sometime around August, trail blazing producer, songwriter and musician, J Martins, decided to pamper himself silly with the acquisition of two eye popping and expensive wonders on wheels, a Rolls Royce Phantom and Mercedes Benz G-Wagon, after a long spell of driving a modest Toyota Corolla car.
