- A number of celebrities know the importance of investing their hard-earned money in real estate
- Some of them have been lucky enough to splash millions on properties outside the country
- Legit.ng has compiled a list of some Nigerian celebrities who own properties abroad
If Nigerian celebrities are not spending their hard-earned money on luxury cars and designer outfits, then you will find the smart ones among them investing in real estate.
Perhaps, this owes to the fact that some of them understand the importance of having multiple streams of income and also having a back-up plan for when they stop doing music or acting.
For instance, Davido in an interview recently disclosed that he does not intend to do music forever and would definitely be retiring soon.

With this knowledge in mind, some of these entertainers are usually interested in making smart moves that would ensure that they do not go hungry when they stop putting out hit records.
Interestingly, real estate appears to be a safe haven for some of them. While some of these superstars have been able to pull their resources together and buy homes in Nigeria, some of them have even taken things a topnotch higher by purchasing properties out of the country.
