“Femi Otedola, my father-in-law, doesn’t own a private jet, Mr Eazi, a Nigerian musician and entrepreneur, reveals.
Femi Otedola is also known for hiring private yatch, recall he celebrated his 60th birthday last year aboard ‘Christina O’.
Back in 2021, we got to see how Femi Otedola flies around the world, after the billionaire businessman gave us a full tour of a lavishly furnished wide-bodied, long-haul Presidential-like private jet he was traveling in.
In the viral video, the billionaire gave was seen walking down different sections of the plane, including First class and Business cabins — a footage that made many (if not all) to believe that the Presidential-like private jet belonged to Otedola.
But while Otedola has all the money in this world to buy anything he wants, including a private jet or two, his son-in-law, Mr Eazi, says the billionaire doesn’t own a private jet, contrary to the beliefs of many.
Mr Eazi, a Nigerian musician and entrepreneur born Oluwatosin Ajibade, made this known during a chat with Naija FM. When one of the hosts asked if the music star flies in a private jet, he said :
“Most time I dey use commercial flight, but e get sometimes once-once I go just fly private jet, like if I dey go collect big money, wey I go fit afford the private jet; no, no be say I get my own.”
When asked if Otedola, his father-in-law, owns a private jet as one of the richest persons in Africa, Mr Eazi said “my father-in-law self no get private jet.”
Not being a frequent flier might be one of the reasons why Nigerian-based billionaire Femi Otedola prefers to charter a private jet instead of buying one, which is a smart way to save money.
Otedola is also known for hiring private yatch, recall he celebrated his 60th birthday last year with family and friends aboard legendary private luxury motor yacht, ‘Christina O’. At the time, Christina O charters for $687,000 per week plus expenses, according to YachtCharterFleet.
