Muhammed Awal Mustapha, popular as Africa's "richest child," celebrated his 10th birthday with a new Lamborghini Aventador worth £300,000 ($365349.22).

Mustapha, who goes by the moniker of Mompha Junior, on Instagram, hit double digits in April. But he waited to flaunt his new yellow car on Wednesday, reported Daily Star.

Multi-millionaire Ismailia Mustapha (Mompha Senior), shared the original snap of his son last month. In the photo, the boy was seen wearing bright yellow laces on his trainers to match the car behind him. The father, who has 1.2 million followers on Instagram, wrote in the caption that having a son like him was the "very reason to look forward to life." His son's "smile is also the reason for our constant happiness We love you!!! Happy birthday Son. Muhammed Awal is 10."

Several fans left their best wishes for the young boy in the comments section. One wished him happy birthday and called him a "adorable soul." The person wished for "more grace and honor."

At a young age, Mompha Junior has had more than a taste of the high life, and he took to his Instagram stories to share the picture saying, "I'm back." He also posted the birthday photo on his grid. Junior, who reportedly has a fleet of luxury cars and a collection of mansions, wrote, "Zooooo."

His father is the CEO of Mompha Burea De Change, Lagos Island and has been flaunting the lifestyle it has afforded him online. The businessman earned social media fans since he shared an image of his Rolls Royce back in February 2018. He often shows off his luxury cars, private jets, and mansions that he owns in places like Nigeria and Dubai.

In 2019, he bought Mompha Jr his first mansion for his sixth birthday. According to, he reportedly wrote at the time that owning your own home is "one of the best feelings ever," and that it can’t be "described in words, it can’t be quantified in money." He further wrote that home ownership is a "feeling that makes life’s daily grind worth facing." According to him, it reassures you that after "all the ups and downs you have a place to go to, a place that will never judge you and always invite you with open arms."
