Obi Cubana whose real name is Obinna Iyiegbu is a Nigerian wealthy business mogul, has revealed the reason they threw a multi-million naira funeral party for his late mother, being the most talked-about in the country.
According to Cubana in a BBC Pidgin interview, they had planned to hold a world-class carnival for their late mother when she turns 80.
However, the mother couldn’t survive to see her 80th birthday, so they decided to make her burial ceremony hit the headlines on Dailies.
“My mother was buried in this manner because we promised her that when she turned 80, we would throw the biggest carnival in the world for her.
“But, because she died before reaching the age of 80, we chose to devote all of the plans and energy set aside for her 80th birthday to her burial.”
Cubana added, “After my father passed away 15 years ago, my mother took on the role of both father and mother, she always prayed for us.”
