Hmmmm Nigerian billionaire's daughter sets her sights on being the next Rihanna!

Interesting! The next Rihanna you say? The same Rihanna who just broke records for the most number one pop songs on the Billboard charts? Alrighty then those are MIGHTY big shoes to fill...

Meet 24 year old Abimbola "Bim" Fernandez. She is the daughter of Nigerian billionaire tycoon Antonio Deinde Fernandez, who Bim says is worth a staggering $8.7 billion.

Her father owns a number of private jets, luxurious properties and usual trappings of the rich and VERY wealthy! As a matter of fact some of the family's close friends are the recently deceased Nelson Mandela, former UN leader Kofi Annan and  many other prominent world leaders. 

The future pop star is wearing a Gillian Harding pleated caftan dress, $1,300 at gasparee.com

Bim says that she wants to strike out on her own as a pop star but says that her privileged background won't help her be successful *side eye* with her insisting  “Money can’t buy a record deal. It can’t buy good music. You can either sing or you can’t.”

While she's right that money isn't a huge factor in whether or not you make it, it certainly does help! Most broke artists have to work side jobs to pay for their dreams but when your Dad is a billionaire it certainly does help? Who needs to worry about rent when Papa Dearest gives you a monthly allowance?

The pics were taken in her luxurious Midtown flat. Check out the original Picasso hanging behind her! Bim is wearing a Carmen Marc Valvo dress, $2,640 at carmenmarcvalvo. com
You can head over to the NY POST to check out her song and let me know what you think. To me, it sounds just ok - listen if you want to be the next Rihanna you have to BRING it. The songs have to be hits, Rih  is a star by design and not some fluke. There is a formula to being a pop star, curious to see what else Bim has to offer.

 But you know I am always rooting for my African sistas, do you thing girlie! Thoughts?
