Nollywood actress, Eniola Badmus, otherwise known as Gbogbo Bigz Girlz, is surely one of the happiest entertainers right now. And the reason is not unconnected with the fact that the brilliant role interpreter recently acquired a new wonder-on-wheels, a white Honda Pilot jeep.
An industry source disclosed to ENCOMIUM Weekly that Wule Bantu as Badmus is also known, took delivery of the new automobile on Sunday, February 22, 2015.
And she has been painting the town red with it. The latest acquisition, we were told, set the talented thespian back by about N10 million.
“Eniola Badmus has just bought a new Honda Pilot jeep. She was so excited that she posted the jeep on her Instagram as soon as it arrived.
“The new jeep is white and has been fully registered. That’s her second jeep in two years. The first one she bought towards the end of 2012, was also a Honda Pilot, white as well. I also learnt she has moved from her Ikoyi, Lagos residence to a bigger and more spacious apartment in Oniru, Lekki, Lagos.
“Eniola Badmus is really living large at the moment. And she is very joyous and excited about it. No doubt, she deserves to enjoy herself, because she is very hard working.”
When contacted on Friday, March 6, 2015, the Ijebu Ode, Ogun born theatre practitioner expressed joy and gave glory to God on the new acquisition.
“Yes, it’s true. I just acquired a new Honda Pilot jeep, 2014 model. I thank God for that.”
Asked why she is so much in love with the brand and colour since her first jeep, acquired in 2012, was also a white Honda Pilot, she said, “I just love Honda Pilot and I prefer white. It’s my favourite colour. I always feel comfortable when cruising around with Honda Pilot. It has everything that makes me comfortable.”
On the tale that the jeep might be a gift from a lover, Badmus reacted, “Gift? That’s rubbish. No man bought my jeep for me. You’re aware I have another Honda Pilot, 2012 model. I just decided to acquire a new one. That’s why I bought it. No man can ask me for the key. It’s acquired out of my hard work. I do both English and Yoruba movies. Today Asaba, tomorrow Enugu. I think people should know that my hard work must be blessed. I am above the level of living on the mercies of men. I can beat my chest that all I had achieved so far, including my latest ride, are fruits of my labour. I bless God for being on my side all day and night.”
Asked if she has moved out of her Ikoyi, Lagos residence, she stated, “Yes, I am now in Oniru Estate, Lekki, and I feel much more comfortable here.”
On the identity of the man rocking her world at the moment, Gbogbo Bigz Girlz chose to maintain sealed lips, saying, “No comment on that, please. It’s my private business.”
