The Luxury Lifestyle Of Funke Akindele
With a net worth of $7.6 million, Funke Akindele sets herself apart from other actors in the industry.

Aside from her house, Funke also owns a production estate dedicated solely to her production company, SceneoneTV. All the movies and series produced by her company and shot in this location. The estate is vast and contains so many different people working and living there during the filming period.
Funke also has her luxury cars as another avenue through which she showcases wealth. Like every other wealthy Nigerian, she has acquired a set of her own car collection which includes;

The mid-sized, front-engine, all-wheel drive, four-foot luxury Bentley Continental GT is one of the cars you’ll find in Funke’s garage.
The car has a top speed of 190 miles per hour (306 km/h) and zeroes to 60mph in just 3.8 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds). The starting price of the Bentley is $160,000.
- Toyota Prado SUV
The Japanese carmaker’s full-size four-wheel-drive vehicle is another luxury car you’ll find Funke driving. It’s one of the smaller vehicles in her garage and you’ll easily find her driving it to her studio location.

Funke is one of the hardworking celebrities in the industry and what this has done for her is help her grow more wealth. She continues to grow her wealth even with an existing net worth of $7.6 million.
The Luxury Lifestyle Of Toyin Abraham
Toyin Abraham’s net worth is earmarked at $2 million. With a net worth like this, she continues to build upon it while also affording herself some of the best luxury items life could offer.
Aside from acting, other avenues that Toyin continues to earn from are her production company and healthcare business which is mostly targeted at women. Toyin also earns a sum of Naira which runs into millions from endorsement deals.
It’s almost impossible to be wealthy in Nigeria without landed properties and a fleet of cars surrounding you. Toyin knows of that and although she rarely makes a statement about them, she often teases her fans with photos and videos of them.
In 2020, the actor officially moved into one of the luxurious mansions in one of the highbrow areas in Lagos. The interior design of the home was done by HNK Interiors, it is spectacular and immediately announces wealth. Their luxury home is also worth millions of Naira.
Toyin also showcases her luxury life in the many cars she owns. Although there’s no clear definition of how many cars she owns, below are some of her luxury cars;
