Nigerian businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu better known as Obi Cubana has been called out by a twitter user for making singer, Portable an ambassador for his brand.
Kemi Filani news reported that the businessman had spent a whopping N50 million of to make the singer his brand ambassador.
The critic who was highly disappointed, took to his Twitter page to slam him.
He questioned how a drug addict who has been caught by security agents stealing could become a brand ambassador.
He wondered why the businessman would endorse someone who he believes needs therapy to tackle his hallucinations.
Berating him, he stated that a Yoruba man will never jump his brothers to give an Igbo man ambassadorship and that’s how it should be.
“Tell me how portable fits this. A drug addict who has been caught by security agents stealing has all of a sudden become an ambassador. Sometimes who needs therapy to tame his hallucinations is the face of an Igbo brand.
We as igbo people should ensure that out decisions are bereft of smelly sentiments.
A Yoruba man will not jump his brothers to give an Igbo man ambassadorship and that is how it should be. We as igbos have an edge that says “Ebe onye bi ka one awachi” (where one resides is where he nurtures), a witty Igbo remark that illustrate the nursery attitude of care and consciousness if whichever environment an Igbo person finds himself.
Let us continue living without consciousness. Let us keep sacrificing our “Essence” on the altar of capitalism.
This thing has been boiling in my kind and this is the best way I could express my disappointment.
If you come here to say you don’t tell people what to do with their money, you will tell me if that is all you understood from this”.
