Personal life

She is a lawyer, and she certainly loves helping the needy. Ebele founded a non-governmental organization called KIEK with a singular aim of helping those who are in need. 

KIEK helps through quality education, good healthcare, nutrition and, of course, children’s rights. 

The happy couple have lovely four boys.

He disclosed he met his wife when he had nothing and lived in a one-bedroom apartment. This revelation caused a lot of commotion on the internet as people dropped their opinions. Some people advised women that this is something they should emulate while others do not believe his grass to grace story.

Late last year, Obi Cubana’s mother kicked the bucket, and he buried his late mother in style. His mom’s burial was the talk of the town because not only were a lot of celebrities present, his friends, family and he himself “made it rain” in naira and dollar notes. 

Ever since, it’s pretty much obvious that not only the government has their eyes on him, a lot of Nigerians asked who Obi Cubana is? What is Obi Cubana’s source of wealth?


Sadly, the celebrity lifestyle attracts a lot of scandals, especially when the Nigerian government wants to know your source of wealth. 

EFCC took Obi Cubana into custody, claiming that he was living extravagantly. He also showed his source of money and evidence of his businesses, which was a blessing.

They further damaged his reputation when someone in his club was electrocuted, which occurred shortly afterwards.

There is rarely any star that does not have some sort of controversy surrounding them, and Obi Cubana has certainly had his fair share of scandals.
