The Chairman of Cubana Group, Obi Iyiegbu, popularly known as Obi Cubana, revealed that he made his first one million naira after he completed his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Abuja.
The socialite and night life boss disclosed that he graduated from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in 1998, with a degree in Political Science.
The businessman in an interview with BBC Pidgin said despite not getting a job, he was able to make his first N1 million through an entrepreneurial venture.
Obi Cubana said, “After undergoing my compulsory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme in Abuja, I started searching for a job all to no avail.”
The billionaire while speaking on the planned birthday for his mum said, “My mother’s burial was like that because we had already promised her that whenever she clocks 80, we’ll organise a unique carnival, which is the first of its kind in the world, to celebrate her.”
“We joked about it and agreed. But thereafter, she died before she clocked 80. Due to that, we dissipated all our energy and initial plans to celebrate her 80th birthday into organising a befitting burial for her. That’s why it is the talk of the town.
“This year (2021) makes it 15 years that our father passed away. After my father’s death, we gave our mother all the love because she was always there for us. She was the one playing the role of a father and mother for us before her death.”
“Whenever you visit her, she must pray for you before leaving. Even in your absence, she still prays for you, so when she died, it was as if they collected part of my energy”
