Obi Cubana, the Nigerian socialite, says he’ll be more open about what he does for a living in 2022.


The entrepreneur, whose real name is Obi Iyiegbu, was reported to have been grilled by the  National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on Thursday over allegations linking him to an illegal narcotics business.

In a post via his Instagram page, Cubana shared the picture of what he said was the very first club he built.

“The first-ever club we built, Ibiza, established 13th October 2006! 16yrs and still standing tall! If you never come here that year for Abuja, you never start! This year! Showcasing what we do for a living!” the entrepreneur wrote.


In the NDLEA’s case against Cubana, sources in the know of the case had been quoted as revealing that suspicious payments were made into Cubana’s account by three convicted drug dealers from Malaysia, Nigeria, and India.

It was gathered that the socialite was allowed to go home in order to get some documents and return at a later date.

It is also understood that the NDLEA and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFFC) have widened their probe into Obi Cubana and his business based on the premise that he may be involved in the drug business.

Cubana, who has been in the nightclub business since 2006, made headlines globally last July when he organised a massively attended lavish funeral for Ezinne Iyiegbu, his mother, in Oba, Idemili South LGA of Anambra state.

The fresh case comes after the EFCC had early November similarly grilled Cubana for alleged money laundering and tax fraud.
