Obi Cubana and Pretty Mike
Obinna Iyiegbu, popularly known as Obi Cubana and boss of Cubana Group, was voted the 2021 Man of the Year by Nigerians both at home and in the Diaspora.
The voting, conducted via some online platforms, was organized by a popular online news platform during their 14-day Leadership Excellence Awards. The award recognizes and honors outstanding impact of leaders across the public and private sectors in Nigeria.
Obi Cubana defeated Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Tony Elumelu, Chairman UBA Group and Abdul Rabiu, Chairman and founder of BUA Group, to clinch the position. The philanthropist and entertainment entrepreneur emerged winner with 2,667,845 votes just as the other nominees secured 1,015,224, 848,652 and 819,562 votes respectively.
Despite the results being made public ahead of the actual award, which is scheduled to take place on November 2, with many of Obi’s friends, associates and family members sending him congratulatory messages, Mike Eze Nwalie Nwogu, otherwise known as Pretty Mike, is yet to congratulate him.
You may wonder what business the controversial night club owner has with Obi. Well, following the departure of Pascal Okechukwu, aka Cubana Chief Priest, one of Obi Cubana’s trusted aides whose effort made Cubana Night Club what it is today, Pretty Mike, who runs Club Uno, formerly known as Q Club, decided to have a joint partnership with Cubana Night Clubs.
His job was to help boost patronage and visibility of Cubana Club, more like a consultancy of sorts. Besides, during the lavish burial ceremony of Obi Cubana’s mother in Anambra months ago, Pretty Mike featured prominently at the ceremony, which spanned four days.
Although he didn’t display wads of naira and foreign currencies like most of Obi’s friends did at the ceremony, he nonetheless provided both moral and social support to Obi who he likes to hail in the comment section of his social media page.
Rather than congratulate Obi, Pretty Mike has kept busy making lewd posts on his social media handle. Hopefully they will resolve whatever issues that might have arisen between them.
