Zaki Azzay is not happy with the way he has been attacked recently by fans and critiques over the purchase of his new 2013 G-Wagon car.

The singer explained that he does not have to reveal his source of income as he has been a low key artiste who does not make noise about his wealth.

He stated that what people do not know is that he has an endorsement deal with a telecommunication company in Nigeria and also has other investments as he made his first millions at the age of 18.

“Album sales do not fetch artistes money. Nigerians could be very surprising at times. I was already a millionaire at the age of 18. I have been in the entertainment industry for over two decades; I have many hit songs and have performed in shows all over the world,” he told Punch.

He further stated that, “I have had performances for Bill Clinton and George Bush. I have achieved so much and yet I buy a G-Wagon of about N30m and people are asking questions. Am I not supposed to have bought about 20 G-Wagons years ago?”

He also disclosed that he has just completed his estate in Benue state with the street bearing his name and his currently building another one in Lekki with the street bearing his name also.

“I have always been in love with a G-Wagon and I have been praying to God that I should be able to afford one before I die. Last week, I was able to afford one, a 2013 model. I was actually building an estate on a street that is named after me somewhere in Makurdi. I eventually finished building it and moved into one of the flats recently. I am not relocating to Makurdi, I built the estate for commercial purposes. In fact, I am building another one in Lekki where the street is also named after me, Zaki Azzay Close,”
