Houses decked in gold, collecting Louboutins like coupons and spraying money from a GUN! Rich kids of Nigeria put everyone in the shade with their lavish display of wealth

*Rich kids of Russia, UK and US have stiff competition from Africa nation

*E-money is country’s youngest billionaire and lives in gold decked house

*Is known for using a money gun to spray cash on guests at weddings

*Mompha pays cash for sprees at Valentino, Hermes, Cavalli and Versace

The rich kids of Instagram never disappoint when it comes to flaunting their extreme wealth on social media.

But it’s generally young people who hail from the UK, the US and Russia that are known for showing off their private jets, designer clothes and luxury holidays.

Now, however, they’ve got some stiff competition from the wealthiest young people in Nigeria – Africa’s biggest economy – whose exploits are documented by the Richkidsnaija Instagram account.

Emeka Okonkwo, known as E-money, is the country’s youngest billionaire through interests such as property, oil and gas and his own record label.

A billion Nigerian Naira is the equivalent of around £2.5 million in the UK.

He owns multiple properties in Lagos and have kitted them out in lavish style with elaborate gold furnishings.

His party trick is to spray cash on the guests from a money gun at weddings.

A video from earlier this year, shows him spraying one million Nigerian dollars – the equivalent of £2,500 – on guests at the marriage of actor Mike Ezuruonye’s sister.

Rapper and designer Bayo Adewale AKA Bnaira is also fond of throwing cash around at parties.

He became known for his love of red cars while studying geography at the University of Lagos and worked his way up from a Honda Accord to Ranger Rovers and supercars with personalised plates in his signature colour.

Louboutins are hugely popular among Nigeria’s wealthiest young men with both Hushpuppi and Mompha showing off their huge collections.

Mompha, who is the CEO of a Lagos Bureau De Change, boasted that he has ‘lots of them like coupons’ and is ‘drowning’ in a red sea of their distinctive soles.

He also showed off his bags from a shopping spree at Gucci, Cavalli, Valentino, Versace, Hermes and Louis Vuitton, making his followers aware that he’d paid for the luxury haul in cash.

Meanwhile HushpuppiI proudly announced that he had been invited to an exclusive preview event at Versace.

‘None of you nuisance, noise makers was invited,’ he said.

‘To God be the glory, it was a successful event and I had a wonderful experience, met worthy people of great class.

‘Of course I made a purchase of one jacket with a huge price tag.

‘These jackets are not going to be available for the general public and they will never be made after this event.

‘They are once in a life time exclusive pieces and of course I only like it if it’s one of a kind, cos I don’t work with crowd mentality and I’m not built to be a champion in a local market.’

He’s also boasted about spending a million Naira on a new Versace man bag, the equivalent of £2,500.

These celebrations are a chance for families and friends to come together. They share in the happiness of the newlyweds, and shower them with congratulations and well wishes.

Weddings in Nigeria are often seen as a community event that strengthens bonds and fosters connections within the social circle.

Why I Once Resented Canada – Spyro

Spyro On why he once resented Canada | fab.ng

Nigerian singer Spyro, whose real name is Oludipe Oluwasanmi, recently shared a personal story on his Instagram page. He revealed a past heartbreak that led him to develop a surprising dislike for Canada.

Spyro was in a serious relationship with a woman who lived in Canada. Things were apparently going well, and he was even planning to propose. However, their love story took an unexpected turn. According to Spyro, his girlfriend saw a photo (or perhaps a video) of him being innocently greeted with a peck on the cheek by a female fan. This seemingly harmless gesture caused a major rift in their relationship, leading to a sudden and unexpected breakup.

Spyro admitted that this experience left him feeling hurt and betrayed.

In his emotional state, he began to associate his heartbreak with the place where his ex-girlfriend lived—Canada. This negative association turned into a full-blown dislike for the entire country. He even confessed to postponing a planned tour of Canada because he was still struggling to move on from the emotional pain.

He wrote:

“Canada, I want to be honest today… The reason why I have pushed this tour this far is because I was still healing from a serious heartbreak from one of your girls there. Quite painful as I saw a future with us …already bought a ring, and all of a sudden, she ended it, and for what, because a female friend pecked me after I bought her something she needed, and I wanted to be open, so I told her and that led to a series of events that ended the relationship. Since then, I resented the idea of Canada and everything that surrounds it, but now am healed thanks to a series of messages from my pastor Canada it is time.”

Spyro says he’s finally moved on from the heartbreak. He is excited to announce that he’s ready to tour Canada after all!

On a lighter note, Spyro threw in a playful message to his female fans in Canada. He jokingly urged them to dress their best for his shows.

He added:

“So you know, I am not just coming to tour o, I am coming to find beauty to my chaos, so my Jesus baddies, as you are coming out to the venues, endeavour to dress sexy but decent, I might just sight my missing rib from the crowd, and oh, I won’t be wearing shades on all performances in CANADA, so I can see well… See ya all from June 14th.”
