Abimbola Fernandez is the daughter of Nigerian gem stone tycoon, Antonio Deinde Fernandez with her eyes fixed on being the next Rihanna.
The 24-year-old heiress based in New York recently released her first single “Let’s Take It Naked,” celebrating it by sitting down for an interview with The New York Post.
With The Fernandez empire estimated to be a staggering $8.7 billion, Bim as she is fondly called may not have to deal with the financial stress of an artist trying to break into the music industry.
Although she says her music career was launched without help from her father, she admits he gives her a hefty monthly allowance which pays for her luxury Manhattan apartment among other living expenses.
About breaking into music Fernandez told the newspaper: “Money can’t buy a record deal. “It can’t buy good music. You can either sing or you can’t.”
