Last year, Daniel Benson, professionally known as BNXN, walked home with a 2022 Bentley Bentayga SUV worth over ₦300 million after emerging the winner of ‘Next Rated Artiste’ at the 15th Headies Award.
In a recent interview with Hip TV, a cable television channel owned by Headies CEO, Ayo Animashaun, the singer revealed he had bought himself a car as consolation should he lose out on the star prize.
BNXN said :
“I was really stunned [winning a Bentley], mainly because I wasn’t expecting it. I thought it would take me a longer time to get a Bentley. I just got a car before that award show because I didn’t want to be pressured by losing the car [Bentley] or not. So, I had to buy another car separately to compensate myself.
“But when I won I was really stunned. Even when they shipped it and brought it to Lagos, it was another, ‘Wow! It’s right here.’ I was really excited.”
