Chief Executive Officer of Triple MG, Ubi Franklin has countered reports of Afrobeats singer, Damini ‘Burna Boy’ Ogulu buying a Bugatti W16 Mistral worth $5 million (N5 billion).
He said that Burna Boy is not someone who can spend that amount on a car which is a depreciating luxurious item.
Ubi’s statement comes days after social media was thrown into a frenzy after an international car dealer, Deejay Mzi, shared a clip revealing both the exteriors and interiors of the Bugatti W16 Mistral which he said belonged to the ‘Last Last’ crooner.
Sharing his thoughts while being interviewed by Football Fans TribeHQ, the music executive said he doesn’t believe the news, and he urged people to always verify their information.
He said; “I will be very honest with you, I don’t think Burna Boy would buy a car for N5 billion. So go and check it very well. Information puts you in formation. So, whenever you see something on the internet, check very well.
“I’m not saying that Burna Boy doesn’t have the money. But I’m saying that Burna Boy would not buy a car; a depreciating asset for N5 billion. It’s not possible.”
