But there is a certain celebration that will make anyone dead or alive bring on the dance even from the grave. Such was the case with Obi Cubana’s superlative burial for his mum on Friday Oba. It was a lavish display of wealth when the nightclub owner, born Obi Iyiegbu,threw a party to rival any for his late mum. Everyone has been talking about the event.
While many have said it is the burial of the year, some others are wondering why a septuagenarian’s burial will have all the trappings of a jamboree.
Over 400 cows were reportedly donated to the host, with the many private jets that ferried guests to Oba and the fleet of luxury cars, this is one ceremony that will stay in the collective memory for a long time to come.
