A youngster in Nigeria is living the luxurious Richie Rich lifestyle after being given his first mansion at the tender age of six, having also accumulated a fleet of supercars before you’d even saved up enough pocket money for your first CD.
Muhammed Awal Mustapha, known as Mompha Junior, can be seen in his Instagram photos posing in designer clothes and flying by private jet.
According to the The Sun, he is the son of multimillionaire Nigerian internet celebrity Ismailia Mustapha, who goes by the name of Mompha and has 1.1 million followers on Instagram.
The doting dad bought Mompha Jr his very first mansion to celebrate his sixth birthday back in 2019, reportedly writing on social media at the time: “Owning your own home is one of the best feelings ever. It can’t be described in words, it can’t be quantified in money.
“Home ownership is a feeling that makes life’s daily grind worth facing. It reassures you that after all the ups and downs you have a place to go to…. A place that will never judge you and always invite you with open arms…
"Congrats My Son on your New Home. Ur birthday Gift from Daddy.”
In another post, Mompha argued that his child has earnt his accolades after ‘paying his dues’.
He said: "The youngest landlord who wears Gucci and still owns a house.
"He deserves some accolades cos he has paid his dues in full."
Mompha Jr, now aged nine, often shows off his lavish life to his followers on Instagram, where he has more than 25,000 followers.
In one snap, posted in 2019, he stands in front of a red Lamborghini Aventador wearing designer clothes – including a Versace t-shirt and some pricey-looking sunglasses.
“Happy birthday to me,” he captioned the post.
According to The Sun, Mompha is said to have made his huge fortune from a bureau de change business in Lagos, and then moved into investments.
The newspaper reports that he is currently facing criminal charges after being accused of laundering more than £10 million, with a court hearing claims earlier this month by Nigeria’s anti-corruption agency that he hid his wealth in ‘movable assets’, including luxury watches.
After being remanded in custody to await trial, he was released on bail for £350,000 ($469,000).
Mompha's lawyer Gboyega Oyewole said the defendant had never jumped bail or missed any date of his trial.
As per Lagos Today, Oyewole said: “When he had Covid-19, his medical details were registered outside the country. We attached all the report to the letter I personally signed to send to EFCC [Economic and Financial Crimes Commission], to assure the commission that by January my client will have fully recuperated and he did. He walked by himself to the EFCC as I promised. He was never arrested anywhere.”
Mompha's last Instagram post showed him travelling by plane, with the caption saying: "SkyMan has landed. About to make some billions in Lagos."
