Kanayo O. Kanayo’s House
Kanayo O. Kanayo is definitely one of the richest actors in the Nigerian music industry and has been in the industry longer than many Nigerian actors and actresses. This should mean that the 57-year old actor should have some magnificent assets under his name and he certainly does.
Kanayo O. Kanayo unveiled his one-of-a-kind mansion in December 2017. The house is one of the classiest in the area and several high profile guests including the former Anambra State Governor Peter Obi were invited for the house warming party.
The house which is a one-storey building features a while and brick exterior design with a high-level fence around the perimeter. The house still looks unfinished, although most of the work has already been completed.
Moving inside we found a world-class interior design with top-quality furnishing. We were not privileged to see other parts of the house like the kitchen and the bedroom but we can make out what to expect with our view of the sitting room. It should definitely be a marvelous sight.
The former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi official cut the tape to declare the house open. Unlike many celebrities and actors who build in the city of Lagos even though they are not from the area, Kanayo O. Kanayo decided to site his house in his hometown in Aboh-Mbaise, Imo State.
As to the worth of the house, we have no official information on that and since the house wasn’t’ bought but built it will be quite difficult to place a figure on it. We will leave you to estimate the worth of the house just by looking at the photos and the design of the house.
It is worthy to note that even though the house is not located in the high brow neighborhood of Lagos it would still cost a fortune.
That concludes our article on Kanayo O. Kanayo’s House in Imo State. We believe that the house is his permanent residence as the actor and politician plans to run for a political position in his home state.
