Dilly Motors: All You Need To Know
With its head office located at 2nd Roundabout, Lekki-Epe Expressway, Ibeju Lekki, Lagos, Nigeria; Dilly Motors Limited is one of Nigeria’s leading dealership companies. The company is owned by Mr Okwudili Umenyiora. Dili’s mum is married to the owner of Germaine Motors; therefore, making him the half-brother of popular Nigerian rapper Naeto C’s wife Nicole.
Mr. Okwudili Umenyiora is married to his beautiful wife Fifi, and are blessed with three kids. Okwudili met his wife Fifi while she was an employee at The Palms Mall, Lekki. Fifi’s younger sister Obioma Isiwu contested for MBGN (Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria) in 2011 but didn’t win. However, she carted home the Miss Tourism prize instead. Okwudili Umenyiora used to live in the United States but had to leave for Nigeria on allegations of being a fraudster.
MR Okwudili Umenyiora is alleged to be a Fraudster having allegedly turned jailhouse informant snitch, gets released from federal prison on March 9th, 2006. According to the Baldwin County, Alabama Corrections Center database, he gets re-arrested the same day and later released, but then the official trail goes cold, and the site lists his status as being that of a ‘Fugitive from Justice’. He was also on trial in Alabama for running a big-time check fraud operation, in which they used Nigeria’s name as part of the pitch for their scam.
Incidentally, that’s not his first brush with the long arm of the law; it seems he’s been a career criminal for over a decade as this mug shot from 2001 attests. Back then his offences included ‘obstructing a police officer’, ‘Giving a false name or information’ and ‘Driving while license is suspended’.
Dilly Umenyiora touts himself as ‘Mr. Dilly’, Chairman of ‘Dilly Motors’, self-styled big time businessman and one of Nigeria’s pillar of commerce.
He has a breathtaking mansion in Lagos that is described by all as a piece of architecture. This shouldn’t come as a surprise; as it took up to 4 years to complete the building. The house has up to 5 housekeepers tending to it; one of which is from the Philippines. Asides owning expensive properties in Lagos and some parts of Nigeria, Dilly Umenyiora is also known to own a number of expensive cars including a Lamborghini sports car. The plate number of the said car is said to be customized. He’s also a lover of vintage cars one which is a 1953 Mercedes Benz.
Mr Okwudili is actually referred to as Africa’s youngest billionaire. While his net worth isn’t known, he’s valued to be worth billions of naira. Given his past experience, some are of the opinion that the car dealership is just a front for other shady business. However, there is no specific evidence to back up these allegations. Dilly is loaded and he doesn’t hide it. He follows the activities on the social calendar with abandon, and he’s always having a blast at every high-octane party in town.
Dilly Umenyiora is also the CEO of Eric Manny Records.
