Remember, some days back davido shutdown the internet with the latest Porsche he bought for his girlfriend, Chioma, as a birthday gift. But, the real price of the car has been revealed and caused controversy since yesterday.
Some news sources put the value of the car at N45 million, this is nowhere near the case, as the car is a tokunbo vehicle. Even brand new Cayennes can be purchased for less than N45 million, The Herald Ng reports.
Based on research conducted by auto aficionado’s, the truck is a 2011 model which retails for about ($25,000) N10 million, exclusive of customs and other charges. The total value of the car is less than N20 million. However, the trim Davido purchased seems to be full options probably bringing the total cost of the car to about N20 million.
Though still a large sum of money, it is nowhere near the N45 million that would be spent to purchase a newer model of this said car.
Even the 2018 model starts retailing from about $65000 (N24 million) and certainly to get it to Nigeria will still be less than N40 million, depending on how determined the car dealer is.
However, that doesn’t take away from the fact that Davido has certainly celebrated on the love of his life. Its just not as big a splurge as certain media elements have hyped it to be.
