OAP, Daddy Freeze, says he can never buy a locally made Innoson SUV for ₦25 million when there are better options for the same price….
The 2019 Big Brother Naija reality TV show has come and gone. This years winner, Mercy Eke, went home with the coveted grand prize of N30 million cash and a N25 million brand new Innoson SUV.
Reacting to the grand finale, controversial media personality, Ifedayo Lucian Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze, took to his twitter page to defend himself after being criticized for watching what many people termed an “evil” program.
Daddy Freeze said he actually gained a whole lot watching the program for the first time. And in one of the things he learnt in big brother, Daddy freeze questions:
“How a locally made SUV be priced that high? I would say 7 million or 10 million, at the most 15 million but N25M”
Once again I’m hoping it was the corona talking not Ebuka… Because, I ask myself, would I walk past a 2016 GLE coupe (yes that Benz with the curved yansh), a 2017 Range Rover Sport, a 2017 GLS450 or a 2016 Lexus LX470 (the new shape o) and decide that it is an innoson SUV that I would purchase at a similar price value simply because I want to ‘buy NIgerian’, NO SIR!
I’m not in anyway undermining the good work of the people at Innoson, however they should get tax cuts (if possible no taxes), interest free loans, import wavers and more government support in order to help drive the prices down to about N15 million Naira max, which in my personal opinion is much more reasonable for a locally manufactured product”
The N25 million Innoson SUV in question is the IVM G40. The SUV is one of several Sports Utility Vehicles currently in Innoson lineups.
