Popular socialite and celebrity club owner, Obi Iyiegbu better known as Obi Cubana, has said no one can damage his name or anything he has “worked so hard to build.”
The Anambra-born businessman also bemoaned the fact that many social media users were misusing his name for a variety of “bad” motives.
Obi stated this on a Facebook Live on Friday night, just before Mark Zuckerberg’s social media network approved his page.
Cubana said, “This is my only verified Facebook page. A lot of guys are using my name; Obi Cubana, Obi Iyiegbu to do a lot of bad things on Facebook. The name Obi Cubana is not associated with anything bad or evil. Please disregard, block, report.
“For me to come up to do this, you guys should know that it is really getting at me. Thank God that Facebook has verified me right now so we can interact more here.”
“You can’t destroy what we’ve worked so hard to build over the years,” he added.
Cubana, who has been in the nightclub business since 2006, grabbed international headlines last July when he organised a lavish funeral for his mother, Ezinne Iyiegbu, in Oba, Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra State.
He subsequently became a subject of an investigation by the Nigerian government.
In November 2021, the socialite shut down his Abuja club, Hustle & Bustle, over the death of one of his customers but reopened weeks later even as the police are probing the matter
