Popular Nigerian actress, Destiny Etiko who celebrated her birthday yesterday, Monday – August 12, has taken to her Instagram page to share a video of a new Mercedes Benz car she got as a birthday gift.
The beautiful actress who did not reveal who gifted her the car has gotten congratulatory messages from her colleagues. The video she shared came with the caption “Birthday gift, am speechless”.
Here is the video below;
It has become a recent trend in Nigeria for female celebrities to showoff a new car gift that they don’t reveal who gifted them while celebrating their birthdays. Many people have suggested that they actually gift themselves with the cars and come online to flaunt them as gifts.
Recall that back in April, BBNaija reality TV star, Bamike Olawunmi, better known as Bambam, claimed that 300 of her fans gifted her a car while she celebrated her birthday.
She took to social media to share photos of the car and wrote:
I wish that I could have this moment for life, for life, for life. ‘Cos in this moment I just feel so alive, alive, alive. # #BamBamAt30
My #fanmily never seizes to amaze me. I love you all soo much.
I can’t believe I’m 30. Thank you Lord for life and family, I’m truly blessed overwhelmed and grateful. Made in 1989 for April 23.
However, popular sex therapist, Jaruma Hauwa felt it was all a publicity stunt and that Bambam possibly bought the car herself or a billionaire ‘big God did.
It’s a thing of pride to buy ur self a car so why would u say fans bought u a car? 1 BILLIONAIRE fan can buy u a car, yes, which is also a thing of pride but 300 people contributing money to buy u a car
