27-year-old John Michael Nchekwube Obinna, popularly known as John Obi Mikel, is living the dream!

John Mikel Obi

The Nigerian international footballer, who plays in midfield for English club Chelsea and the Nigeria national team, is living a luxurious life. The footballer who earns about $6 million (N1.14bn) annually has everything going smoothly for him!

This annual income does not include the various endorsements and sponsorships he gets, hence the challenge of how to spend his money. The footballer obviously has great taste when it comes to furnishing his home. His living room, kitchen, rides and other things are pointers that money is good if used well.

The days when parents punish their children and frown at them for playing football are in the past now, because football has provided a great living for many. Nowadays, parents even go to the lengths of giving their kids names like Mikel, Kanu and Okocha, just to associate them with football stars.

Mikel has a mansion in London. See some photos below:
