Nigerian music artist and one of African’s most successful musicians, Adeleke David, popularly known by his stage name, Davido has hinted at buying a Gulf-Steam jet.
Davido owns his own private jet, a Bombardier Challenger 605, estimated to cost $27 million dollars. The jet, nick-named air OBO, makes Davido the first indigenous Nigerian musician to own his own private jet.
A Gulfstream, on the other hand, is in another league of its own, with just a few people in Nigeria owning this spec of private plane. Think of Chief Femi Otedola, Alhaji Dangote, Senator Bola Tinubu, Pastor Adeboye, and Bishop Oyedepo.
A Gulfstream G650, according to Business Insider, starts from $65 million.
Davido may have dropped the hint that he is copping the Gulfstream on Twitter, Friday 10 January 2020, when he tweeted, “Gulfstream on the way 😂😂😂✈️✈️✈️… PALE DEY WORRY 😂😂🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯”
If Davido successfully acquires his own Gulf-stream, which Bloomberg reports requires a waiting time of 2 years or more, this will place the musician in a league that only a few international musicians such as Drake would compete in.
Drake owns a completely refitted Boeing 767 passenger plane that he converted into a private plane. It was reportedly acquired for $200million.
When should we look forward to seeing Davido’s plane? It may be here anytime soon as Davido doesn’t seem to be an individual that makes empty noise. When he speaks, he mostly delivers.
