Obi Cubana remains unruffled


By Oladapo Sofowora

Cubana Group boss, Obi Iyiegbu aka ‘Obi Cubana’ is one man that is known on the social scene as one who loves to live a good life. He heads one of the biggest Night clubs and hospitality chains in Nigeria, with branches in Lagos, Abuja, Owerri, and other parts of the country.

Recently, controversy trailed Obi and one of his staff, Pascal Okechukwu aka Cubana Chief Priest, who doubles as a brand influencer for the club over a rift between the duo which led to them parting ways as business associates. The reason for their split was made private as Obi chose not to address the issue. Sources, however, said Obi and Pascal parted ways being reprimanded for battering a female. Obi had instructed Pascal to apologise to the lady to restore peace but Pascal allegedly refused. When some close mutual friends of the duo waded in to resolve the issue, Cubana Chief Priest ignored the truce call and went on social media to announce the berth of his nightclub in joint partnership with his wife in Owerri, Imo state. “After Obi saw his moves, like an elder brother, he wished Cubana Chief Priest well in the new direction. Funny enough, Obi will still do business with him to tell you how liberal and progressive-minded he is,” a source hinted. Despite this, Obi has remained unruffled and this was evident when he was spotted at the recently held Cubana luxury drive-by fest at Tafawa Balewa square.

Apart from working round the clock to create a fun-filled atmosphere for his customers, the dark-skinned husky-voiced serial entrepreneur never jokes with his family.

The cosmopolitan businessman changed the nightlife business in Lagos with his Cubana franchise. With his heaven-on-earth architectural masterpieces, Cubana nightclub and restaurant, littered across Nigeria, he secured his place in the league of hospitality and nightlife giants.
