XCLUSIVE: Okowa Announces His Arrival with a $1.5 million Bugatti
Wisdom Okowa has announced his arrival to the big league with a Super Sport Bugatti Veyron. The younger brother of Delta State governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, is currently painting Asaba red with impunity in the $1.5 million state-of-the-art car. With a price tag of about $1.5 million, Bugatti Veyron is the world’s most expensive car. And this particular Super Sport version chosen by Wisdom Okowa, according to Business Insider UK, “is the fastest production car ever made.”
In early 2014, Volkswagen announced that there were only 50 Bugatti Veyrons left for sale — and it will not produce more. XCLUSIVE MAGAZINE is unable to establish if Wisdom, famously called Preddy Wise, picked up one of the remaining 50 (if any was still left as at 2016) or he went for a fairly used one, which is almost as expensive and good as a brand new one.
Such arrogant display of ill-gotten wealth from the younger Okowa has irked many Deltans, particularly the long-suffering State Civil Servants, who are still owed up to three months salary.
“The general feeling right now is that Wisdom did not have the wisdom not to flaunt his ostensibly ill-gotten wealth in the face of civil servants, who had a bleak Christmas because they were not paid their three months salaries,” said a civil servant in Asaba, who asked not to be named in order to save his job.
XCLUSIVE MAGAZINE gathered from a source very close to the Okowas that not quite long ago, Wisdom, who is into general merchandising after his music career hit rock-bottom, was already on his financial knees. But all that quickly changed immediately his older brother, the governor, assumed office on 29 May 2015.
The insider source told XCLUSIVE MAGAZINE that the former president of Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN) struck gold when he was secretly awarded a contract by his governor brother to buy luxury cars such as Prado, Land cruiser and Lexus LX 570 for the State government top officials that include commissioners and State House of Assembly members.
We understand that the former musician, who released his first album in 1998, was well mobilised with full up front payment close to one billion Naira, the reason he has such huge wad of cash to go for such luxury brand as Bugatti, with a clear intent to make a statement that good times is here…for the Okowa’s!
Shortly after Gov. Okowa assumed office, he lamented that the State was broke, claiming that he inherited N636 billion debt from his predecessor Dr Emmanual Uduagan and imploring Delta citizens to tighten their melts and make sacrifices. Now seeing someone very close to the governor gallivanting in such an expensive car has left many Deltans feeling short-changed and betrayed.
