Obi Cubana Biography
Obi Iyiegbu is a Nigerian entrepreneur and businessman long famous as the head of the Cubana Group, a conglomerate of companies with interests in real estate, hospitality and fashion, among others.

Obi Cubana was born in 1976, so he’s currently 46 years. He celebrated his birthday in April.

Obi Cubana’s mother was a woman called Ezinne Uche Iyiegbu. Her kids had planned a carnival-like birthday celebration for her if she should make it to the 80 years mark. They let her know their plans.
Fate intruded, and Ezinne died before her 80th birthday, ruining her children’s plans for her. So in lieu of a carnival, her children decided to give her a one-of-a-kind burial. The burial ceremony lasted 8 days and was described as one of the most expensive burials in Nigeria in recent memory.
Ebele Iyiegbu is the only wife of Obi Cubana. The two got married in 2008, and they currently have four sons. A lawyer by profession, she proudly calls herself the mother of boys.
The celebrated entrepreneur has not one but several houses. He has a mansion in his hometown of Oba in Anambra state, another in Lagos and yet another in Abuja. The Abuja mansion is under contract, but the hospital has taken his associates to see it anyway.
