Ever since Obi Cuabana’s mother’s burial in Oba, there have been several questions surrounding his source of wealth, considering the lavish nature of the ceremony.
However, the entertainer has urged Nigerian youths to stop seeking illegal means to make money, stating that he does not have “soap” to cut for anyone.
While speaking in an interview with BBC Pidgin on Tuesday 20th of July, Obi mentioned he got his breakthrough when he made his first million naira after his National Youth Service Corps program in Abuja.
In his words, That was the first N1.1 million I made before I joined contract work in Abuja. I signed a contract with PPMC, made a little money, then bought my Mercedes V-boot. I invested the money I made into a garden beer parlor before I established Cubana Group.
Miracle can’t give you money because the pastor needs the money more than you. Native doctor can’t give you money either. If you want money, you have to work hard.
If you are in your 20s, work now. I am 46 years (old), I have done my first half. I don’t know why someone who is just 20 years (old) will say he has not made it when he still has 50 years 60 years ahead. There is no soap to cut for anybody, there is no soap anywhere, work, pray, be good, make your own soap.
