He didn’t say much at the house until it was completed and after his Instagram announcement, it caught many people by surprise. The house is tastefully furnished and the interior finishing is said to be worth around or over half of the total building worth.
Don’t talk about cars where Wizkid is. The StarBoy owns a fleet of cars and he has been rumoured to be looking to buy a Lamborghini Prime X2 which is worth around N28 Million. Wizkid’s garage is host to cars like the Porsche Panamera, a car he bought in 2013 but got involved in a car crash only to go ahead to go ahead to purchase just the same type the next month. The car… or cars are worth N15 Million each and he

According to reports, he made Just N70 Million from the deal, and if you ask him if cars are enough to move around, you’re sure to get “No” for an answer, as the 26 year old recently got himself a Can-am tri-wheel supercharged bike which is worth around N7 Million; and with a net worth of $12 Million, there’s little wonder if all his acquisitions were going to affect his financial well being.
