D’banj buys Rolls-Royce Phantom to mark 39th birthday


Popular Nigerian singer Dapo Oyebanjo, better known as Dbanj, is celebrating his 39th birthday today with a brand new Rolls-Royce Phantom V111.

The secret birthday treat that he gave himself was let out by Jeremiah Ogbodo, with the Instagram account @swankyjerry. Ogbodo describes himself as Celebrity Fashion Stylist, designer, Publicist, Strategist and Image Consultant.

Swankyjerry splashed the photo of the white sedan Phantom V111, which has a 2019 price tag of $450,000. The car could even have cost as much as $600,000, going by a story by business Insider. Phantom VIII customers who want bespoke options could pay additional $150,000 that would make for an average order price of $600,000.
