There is a popular adage which goes thus ‘Money doesn’t buy happiness’. Well, I do not agree with that. Money buys almost everything. A poor man has the tendency to be sick and depressed for life. If you see the number of things Ighalo has acquired you will begin to think about your life and ask questions like, Why did I attend the University? Why didn’t I follow my passion to be a footballer? Why didn’t I go to the football field every weekend, maybe someone might just find interest in how I play? Why and Why?
Ighalo was playing for Nigerian clubs like Prime and Julius Berger before luck came by. If you study how the Nigerian striker has evolved from one club to another you would wonder how God has been faithful to this young man. Do you know what it feels to be called the First Nigerian Striker to play for one of the best premier league sides in England? Just imagine how much he would be worth right now, having played with clubs like big clubs like Udinese, Watford, Chinese club, Shanghai Shenhua and Manchester United.
Have you seen his house in Lekki? Gush! that house costs millions of naira, it is one of the biggest mansions in Africa. The Nigerian striker owns a palatial house in Lekki, Lagos. The multi-million Odion Ighalo house is no doubt one of his pricey assets.
Furthermore, he owns a fleet of luxury brand cars such as a Mercedes Benz G Wagon, Range Rover Sport, among others.
Odion is also a philanthropist as he dedicates part of his earnings to help the less fortunate groups in his home country.
He owns Orphanage home asides from his investments. He is given back to society. How many successful Nigerians remember their roots after being successful? The difference he makes in the lives of children is touching and inspirational.
In 2019, the famous striker had an estimated net worth figure of 30 million US dollars. Currently, his salary is about 165,000 US dollars per week after he agreed to take a 50% pay cut to make a move to Manchester United from. It is very difficult to find persons in Nigeria who earn over 60 million per week.
The Nigerian star has vowed to promise Manchester United that he will give his best to the team. There is more to expect from the Super Eagles forward.
