Obi Cubana’s mother burial

His mother’s burial which took place on the 16th of July, 2021, will be the point of discussion for a long time, not just in Aba or Anambra but also in Nigeria.

This is owing to the lavish spending which took place during the party. Obi Cubana received over 200 cows aside from other cash gifts worth millions for his mother’s burial.

The event brought the village of Oba to the limelight.

Cubana lost his mother in 2020, to keep her in his memory, he got her immortalized with a pendant and neckpiece worth $100,000.
