Nigerian musician, Mr. Eazi has disclosed that he doesn’t own a car but has bought cars for people to ride in whiles he always charter Uber for his rounds.
According to Mr. Eazi, he prefers using Uber as against buying an expensive car that he won’t really drive.
“If your self-esteem is based on how much you have in your bank account, then you have a serious self-esteem issue. Right from when I sang my very first song, someone offered me N80m record deal but I turned it down and at the time, I did not have N300,000 in my account”.
Explaining further on why he prefers to use Uber and not buy his own car like his friends have, Mr. eazi stated categorically that, for him It doesn’t make sense to buy a N100m car which he would probably drive for like 5 times in a year and therefore would chose Uber at any time.
“Till today, I use Uber but I do not care and by the way, I don’t even pay for the ride because I was given Uber credit. But if you see me in the Uber vehicle and feel that Mr. Eazi is poor, what is my business (with that)? For instance, everybody around me has cars, and besides, I buy cars for people. If it makes sense for me to use an Uber, why should I drive? Why would I pay about N100m for a car that I would probably drive just five times a year”
The Nigerian musician who finally disclosed how filthy rich he is, told has better plans for his money than splashing it on flashy cars.
“There are better things to do with that money. In the short time, I have spent on earth, I have made a lot of money. While I was into mining, I had so much money that I was living at a place that was a stone’s throw away from the airport in Accra and I was paying my rent in dollars”.
