- Toyota RAV4
This is his regular car as he is seen most time making thriller videos in it and driving to see his friends.
The Toyota RAV4 is a compact crossover SUV produced by the Japanese automobile manufacturer Toyota. It has a great fuel economy estimate; it feels stable around corners and offers a quality cabin with ample space. However, it has a noisy engine that lacks the punchy turbocharger of many rivals.
- Mercedes Benz GLK
The GLK is fireboy’s favourite as he drives it to the mall and an important event, it cost him about N10 million. It is an AWD; it is not only refreshing but the most luxurious riding vehicle he owned to date! This car is solid, over 4,000 pounds in weight, holds the road, and with an engine, you cannot hear. The acceleration has no turbo lag and we are spoiled with the quiet, smooth ride and the engine’s effortless changing of gears we cannot hear or feel it.
The front seats are comfortable, the headroom we love, harder to find cars with an expansive headroom. The AWD will be much appreciated in the harsh Lagos weather. The safety mechanisms are second to none. Plus knee airbags for the driver! The 19-inch tires plant you firmly on the pavement but don’t be fooled; this baby can get up and GO! We are in love with the engine’s power for highway driving. Truly this is luxury at its best.
- Rolls Royce
He was seen posing beside this huge amazing Rolls Royce; it may be for a photo shoot or video shoot. The car is a very expensive luxury car as it is worth over N100million.
- MPG: up to 23 cities / 30 highways
- Towing capacity: 1,500 to 3,500 lbs
- Dimensions: 181″ L x 73″ W x 66-68″ H
- Fuel tank capacity: 15.9 gal

Because that was a big moment for me. I met Olamide for the first time in person at a hotel in Lekki. We exchanged a few words — he’s a man of few words. But I think we started recording that same day, working on the album.
5 February 1996 Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria
