- It is a period of female folks acquiring exotic cars all over the world
- The latest is a 17-year-old girl who shared photos of the N8.9 million car she bought herself
- While some thought she should put her money into something that wouldn't depreciate, others played down the value of the car type
The female folks are really treating themselves to some nice rides this year. A 17-year-old girl is the latest female to gift herself a car.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday, February 11, the teenager, with the handle @glorygrlwrld, shared photos of the whip she acquired with the caption:
"I just bought my own carrrr at 17 yall. Paid off in cash!"
@glorygrlwrld's post which had got over 162k likes and over 7k retweets got massive reactions from tweeps. Some tweeps celebrated her, others felt she could have put the money to better use like investing in stock as car value usually depreciates.
"Congrats!!! Next Time Invest In Stocks, Purchase Land Or Buy A House!!! Car Value Depreciates Yearly."
"That's a bad way to start off adulthood. Car notes are not our friends."
"Boss come teach me work abeg which baba dey run the soap you dey use biko."
"Just curious about how at 17 you bought a car? You have to be at least 18 to legally sign for it."
Quick research on the car, according to The Car Connection, showed it is a 2018 model of Honda Accord which is valued at $23,570 (N8.9 million).
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young Nigerian man bought his first car and shared photos to celebrate.
Posting about the car on Saturday, February 6, he said that the vehicle is his first car, showing how much he is excited about it with different poses.
The man posed with the new white whip in an outfit that matches its colour. Many Nigerians praised him, saying that he deserves the self-care he gave himself.
