Nightlife King Obi Cubana has come out to shut don money ritual claims on social media following the lavish burial he threw for his mother in Anambra state. The burial made the papers for several days seeing the display of wealth seen at the ceremony.
In a recent interview with BBC Pidgin, the businessman addressed the various stories making the rounds on social media and shut down claims that he is involved in dirty money. “I want to state this clearly, I am not the talking type or Social media interest-free person” “Many have questioned the type of boys and friends I have, to me, I hardly address anyone as my boy because we are all boys to God Almighty.
I don’t have any boy who is into rituals, if you are my boy or my man because I like to address my boys as my men, it means you are working hard and you made your money in a clean way. In 2013, I pushed 53 uneducated Oba boys into the market to learn to trade. In 2017, I withdrew all of them from their Ogas and settled all of them with 3million Naira each, and paid for their shops.
I linked 40 of them into importation and made them use my name and platform to import goods into the country. After two years, I checked on them how they were doing and find out some had issues and I supported them again to stand.
I am happy today that out of the 53 men, 38 are billionaires while the rest are in the level of a millionaire. In 2018, I took 100 educated men out of the streets and introduced them to the white men for business, and today there are billionaires in dollars. They also help me in their capacity when I require their help. All their friends both Nigeria and outside patronizes me.
I am into the hotel and club business and I have so many businesses I am brand ambassadors to. I have an alliance with spirit drinks and wines, I am a brand to many businesses in the world. It gives me joy to see my men do well, non of my hotel managers in Nigeria can small poverty, I encourage them to raise others from their local communities.
“If you are in your 20s, work now. I am 46 years (old), I have done my first half. I don’t know why someone who is just 20 years (old) will say he has not made it when he still has 50 years 60 years ahead. “There is no soap to cut for anybody, there is no soap anywhere, work, pray, be good, make your own soap.”
