The Nigerian Twittersphere has been abuzz after Femi Otedola, a billionaire businessman, purchased brand new Ferrari vehicles with customised plate numbers for his three daughters.
DJ Cuppy, one of his daughters, had broken the news on social media while also sharing photos of the three newly purchased cars — worth about N83 million each.
The development has since stirred frenzy and a plethora of mixed reactions on social media platform, particularly Twitter.
While a segment of users hailed Otedola following the gift to his daughters, others pitted him against their own parents in a denigratory comparison.
“Femi Otedola took his daughter’s out and bought brand new Ferrari for them. I remember when my dad told me to Kneel down because I asked him for a bicycle,” a user wrote.
“My People Poverty Na Bastard When Femi Otedola Said He Was Taking His Daughters For Shopping This Is What He Meant,” another user wrote.
A Twitter user, who appeared rather displeased, spoke against the timing of the spending, saying: “In a middle of a Pandemic when many people are unemployed and currently struggling to survive? Do you know how many families he can lift out of poverty or how many hospitals, schools would be well equipped with this money. Absolute waste of resources!”

Absolute waste of resources!

I thought this Cuppy’s Ferrari thing was supposed to be cruise? So some of you are legit using this opportunity to shade your parents who toiled day and night to give you the best they could afford? God forbid!

Three cost $697,389

Anyone saying they wish their dad was Otedola because he gifted Cuppy and Temi new Ferrari does not deserve happiness. Be grateful your papa gave you life. Work hard and pray for Grace so your parents will be proud they gave birth to someone greater than an Otedola. Be wise😊❤

I hope my Daddy is seeing what Otedola is doing for his daughters. Because if it is to blame me for not graduating with a first class now, they'll see him there. Mr Man, your mates are buying Ferrari for their children now o 👏 👏 👏
— Fairly used boyfriend 💫 (@brysonadahcole) September 16, 2020
Just congratulate Dj Cuppy, be happy for her for the Ferrari Otedola gave her and pray for your own to come. Don't go & be swearing for your parents for buying you bobo and cabin biscuit as gift, just thank God for gift of life and hope for better days ahead, your own will come.
