Nigerian billionaire entrepreneur, Obi Cubana has revealed how he made his wealth as he highlights some of the investments he made several years ago that has paid off and he is enjoying today.
Following the successful burial of his late mother in Oba, Anambra State where he was raised, a lot of Nigerians raised questions about the source of his wealth and speaking to BBC Pidgin in an interview, the Hotelier revealed that in 2013, he pushed 53 uneducated Oba men into the market to learn how to trade and today most of them are billionaires.
Reported by Gistreel news, Obi Cubana said;
“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
