I’ve concluded that Davido takes Skibii’s “Ice on My Wrist” lyrics too seriously. Nothing else explains his obsession with wristwatches and, expensive jewellery.
The singer recently lit up the internet when he shared a video showing a large part of his ice collection.
Like many Nigerians on Obasanjo’s internet, I was intrigued and went down a rabbit hole of the singer’s watch collection. The first thing I found was that they’re worth over a billion naira.
Let’s take a look at them.
Platinum Day-date Oyster Perpetual
Estimated value: $60k
It’s not exactly screaming “I’m that guy” but I think I get it. Even the rich want to be lowkey sometimes.
Skeleton Santos de Cartier with a skeletonized dial
Estimated value: $45k
If you know OBO, you’ll know he loves to show up, and that explains why he splashed millions on this piece.
Patek Philippe Nautilus
Estimate value: $60k
Is it me or is this piece subtly screaming, “I’ll buy you a dozen times over”? OBO, easy on us please.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Stainless Steel
Estimate value: $60k
Only OBO will splash $60k on a basic-looking piece like this one. But hey, there’s a saying about empty barrels making the loudest noise.
Rolex Day Date Gold
Estimate value: $35k
Ooouuu! Now this is some African royal prince-type shit. Also, if you know ball, you’ll agree that Rolex is the Rihanna of wristwatches.
Richard Mille 011
Estimated value: $400k
If you’re wondering why he has an album named Timeless, this should be enough explanation.
Franc Vila Cobra Chronograph Grand
Estimated value: $35k
It’s giving “I could have been Ben 10 in another life”. But hey, I’ll gladly accept it as a gift.
Richard Mille Skeleton Dial Rose Gold
Estimated value: $300k
I mean, just take a close look at his wrist in this photo and tell me you’re not intrigued.
Rolex Daytona Rainbow Black Dial
Estimated value: $600k
If I lay my hands on this piece, God knows I’ll also be unavailable.
