Davido Just Bought a Private Jet—and We Should Care Because?

Why are we constantly praising rich folks for being rich?

Here's some pertinent information that you absolutely must know: Davido, the man that brought us undeniable hits like "FIA," "If" and "Skelewu" has purchased a private jet.

Why exactly we should care about this "news" is uncertain, but there's no question that many people do. Numerous Nigerian outlets have picked up the story, with some noting that Davido is now the "youngest Nigerian to own a private jet," and others listing "10 facts we should know about Davido's N9.7 billion ($27 million) private jet." The same occurred earlier this month when the singer purchased a Porsche for his girlfriend.

Such news stories frame Davido's material acquisition as some sort of remarkable deed, warranting the artist a trophy and a special place in Nigerian history books next to fellow heroes like Fela Kuti and Chinua Achebe for his own groundbreaking "first." The inclination to laud Davido, and praise his largely unattainable "accomplishment" highlights Nigerian society's fixation with status and its fascination with people who've amassed exorbitant wealth, for the sake of amassing exorbitant wealth. It's hardly a secret that the majority of Nigerians who have found themselves in this class, have largely done so through back channels: capitalizing off of weak governance, shady regulations and by exploiting the masses rather than "prayer, steadfastness and the grace of God," like some would have us believe. It's unfair and unrealistic for them to remain the standard by which Nigerian society measures success.
