Obi Cubana, a billionaire businessman from Anambra, revealed on Tuesday that he earned a degree in Political Science from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, in 1998.
In an interview with BBC Pidgin, the businessman said that despite not being able to find work, he was able to make his first N1 million through an entrepreneurial venture.
“After completing my mandatory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) program in Abuja, I began looking for work but was unsuccessful.”
“We did such a good job that he gave me N500,000 in addition to the N600,000 profit I made from the deal. That brought the total to N1.1 million. “I made my first million naira after I completed my NYSC,” he said.
“How would I have arranged for people to come to the event and spray money?” Obi Cubana said, speaking about his mother’s burial. Is it safe to take a bath with it? They own the money, so they are free to spend it however they want.”
“Everyone who came to the burial is a bigwig from a different industry, so they’re there to show their love for my family. Some of them were former classmates and coworkers from my high school.
“As a result, the funeral provided them with an opportunity to express their love and support. That’s what happened on that particular day,” he explained.
“My mother’s burial was like that because we had already promised her that when she turns 80, we’ll organize a unique carnival, which is the first of its kind in the world, to celebrate her,” the billionaire said.
“We laughed about it and decided to do it.” She died, however, before she reached the age of 80. As a result, we channeled all of our energy and initial plans to celebrate her 80th birthday into planning a proper burial for her. It’s for this reason that it’s the talk of the town.
“Our father died 15 years ago this year, in the year 2021. We showered our mother with love after my father died because she was always there for us. Before she died, she was the one who acted as our father and mother.”
“Every time you pay her a visit, she must pray for you before leaving. She prays for you even when you’re not there, so when she died, it was as if they collected some of my energy.”
