Nigerian businessman and socialite, Obi Iyiegbu better known as Obi Cubana shocked many when he stormed a market hours ago to advertise his products.
The billionaire didn’t allow pride, status and wealth stop him from marketing his products.
Obi Cubana, recently added a new business to his growing empire when he launched premium alcoholic brand, Odogwu Bitters.
As a marketing strategy, he stormed a local market to create awareness about his products.

The market was so crowdy as many struggled to have an opportunity with him.
Taking to his Instagram page, Cubana shared video of the eventful moment, with the caption: “Odogwu went to the market to market Odogwu Bitters!!!”.
Kemi Filani news recalls Obi Cubana recounted how circumstances almost ruined his convocation at UNN.
The Cubana Group founder narrated his experience while traveling for his convocation at University of Nigeria, Nsukka in 2009.
Obi Cubana recounted how he and his friends were traveling to their University from Abuja to Nsukka to attend their convocation and decided to enter a different night bus because of its affordability and cheapness.
The vehicle they boarded was one which doesn’t provide maximum comfort nor attachment.
None of them dared to sleep because they knew they could get on the wrong side of traders who bought full seats.
Obi Cubana travelled along with his most precious and priceless shoe which his uncle got for him after flying high in his academics and making a 2.1 in his departmare.
Unfortunately, he lost a pair of the shoe and it almost ruined his convocation but God saw him through.
He shared the experience to motivate people to keep striving harder and to believe in hope when there his life.
Cubana questioned if Nigerians still traveled on night buses.
“2009, we were going to University of Nigeria Nsukka for our convocation ceremony from Abuja, in company of some of my friends and classmates; Nze, Ultimate, Onwa, Ogali, etc!!
We entered bus from Area 1 Garki Abuja to Dumez, near Suleja so we could enter cheaper “night bus” instead of boarding from Jabu Park!
We got tickets for Mercedes Benz 1414 commuter vehicle, attachment!
My uncle, Zubby, bought me a pair of “Schooles” shoes, having made him proud by making a 2:1 in Political Science department!
Inside the 1414 Benz bus there was ZERO comfort, especially attachment!
U dared not sleep cos if u happened to rest your head on shoulder of a trader that had “full seat”…. na slap or punch, depending on mindset!!
We managed to get to Obollo Afor in the morning, where we would now take a bus to Nsukka.
Getting to where we contributed money to stay for the entire convocation, I realised I lost one leg of the pair of my adored and priceless “schooles”shoes
It almost ruined my convocation!!!!
But today, here we are!!!
