- A number of Nigerian celebrities are known to have domestic pets that they happily show off on social media
- DJ Cuppy, Niniola, Mayorkun among others all have dogs that have also bagged some level of fame just like them
- However, there’s also the set of top entertainers who are more drawn to wild animals as opposed to domestic pets
Many people take to their heels when they hear of snakes or lions but it appears the case is entirely different for some celebrities featured in this list by Legit.ng.
Unlike their colleagues who have chosen to keep things safe and go for domestic pets, these individuals have a knack for the ‘big and bad buys’.
Check them out below:

Apparently, Zion had visited a zoo and unlike other kids who would most likely run from snakes, the little man was all game!
A snake was wrapped around Zion's neck and he appeared completely calm as he posed for photos. Should Wizkid expect to buy him a pet snake?
2. DJ Cuppy
The celebrity DJ is known to show off her lovely pups, Dudu and Funfun, but she also has another pet in faraway Dubai.
Cuppy has a white lion named after her and she doesn't fail to visit the big cat whenever she pays a visit to Dubai.
On her last visit in 2020, Cuppy shared pictures showing the growth of her pet.
Although the singer doesn't talk about it so much anymore, Runtown used to be vocal about his lion cub.
