What’s Going On With Nigeria’s ‘richest Footballer’ Oba-goal Martins? by Omihanifa: 9:35am On Aug 07, 2021
Is it possible for former Super Eagles star striker-now-turned-Lagos celeb Obafemi Martins to now have fallen on hard times after the huge fortune he made?

Some reports have suggested Martins, 36, has a net worth of over 48 Billion Naira to make him the country’s richest football star.

His investment portfolio includes landed properties in Lekki and Ajah in Lagos as well as a hotel and a night club, which has yet open.

It is said the much-traveled striker, who has played in the major leagues of Premier League, Serie A, La Liga and Bundesliga, made a whooping eight Billion Naira playing in China alone.

However, it has now been specially learnt from some of his increasingly shrinking entourage that there may be a lot more than has been reported with rumours he is no longer as has been promoted.

It has been alleged that the banks have received his beautiful home in Como, Italy, over a payment default.

He has sold three of four houses in the affluent Victoria Garden City (VGC) in Lekki, Lagos.

Rumour also has it that he plans to sell his yacht, which is worth over 400 Million Naira.

He has distanced himself from his family and fallen out big time with many of his close friends, some of whom he had grown up with in the tough Lagos neigbourhood of Orile.

His foundation, which in 2019 reportedly spent over two Million dollars to buy wheelchairs for the physically challenged and subsequently donated them to the Lagos State Government, has not been active for the past three years.

“Things are no longer great for ‘Oba’”, admitted a source close to the former Inter Milan star, who is in his fifth marriage now.

“What you see on the outside is not really what it is.

“The night club has yet to open and that was almost three years since he paid 680 Million Naira to lease the Ikoyi property that will house it.

“Even the hotel they are talking about and which he has spent hundreds of Millions of Naira on is uncompleted.”

His contract with Chinese club Wuhan was terminated before it had expired and it is not known if he would still play football again.
