Nigerian businessman, Obi Iyiegbu, popularly known as Obi Cubana reacts to various accusations of obtaining wealth through ritual or fraud, as claimed by many Nigerians.
Internet space in Nigeria became bubbling after the burial of the billionaire’s mother, which made many people in the country question his source of wealth.
In an interview with BBC Pidgin, Obi Cubana revealed that the first decade of his life was spent on working hard, which resulted to the life he is enjoying now.
He says; “Miracle no dey give money because that pastor needs the money more. Native doctor no fit give money because his children are the ones who fetch water from the stream. How can he give you what he doesn’t have? Work hard. Work hard,”
Pondering on the “cut soap” slang that engulfed his page, he urged people to work hard and be consistent.
“Cut soap” is slang used to ask a successful person to give you a bit of what they are using that makes them successful. It originates from the claims that some young fraudsters visit ritualists who give them soap to bathe with for optimal success.”
“If you are in your 20s, work now. I am 46 years. I have done my first half. I don’t know why someone who is just 20 years 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.”
