Obi Cubana fulfil promise, gives hawker scholarship letter


Billionaire businessman and socialite, Obi Iyiegbu, aka Obi Cubana, has offered a letter of scholarship to Jeremiah Ekumah.

Ekumah is the Lagos hawker whose video went viral while giving prisoners money while they were being transported in a van.

Obi Cubana during an interview with On-Air-Personality Ifedayo Olarinde, aka Daddy Freeze promised to sponsor the boys education in any university of his choice.

He made good on that promise Saturday as he shared photos of Ekumah receiving a scholarship letter from Cubana Group in company of Daddy Freeze.

Obi Cubana, on his Instagram page, also revealed that one Mr & Mrs Afuah, based in Canada, has placed Ekuma on a N100,000 monthly salary till he finished his education.

The post read, “And God has remembered Jerry!! @jerryluck_ God used Rocky @rockyemmyphotography to make that video! And God used @daddyfreeze to connect me and Jerry!

“He has collected his letter of scholarship from Cubana Group! Thank God for His uncommon Grace! Mr & Mrs Afuah @iam_hymans who are based in Canada, we ran into ourselves last night at Cubana Lagos, and he introduced himself and said he wanted to reach out to Jerry.

“We all met this afternoon here in lagos. He has promised Jerry (and started paying immediately) a salary of 100k monthly from today till he is done with school!

“God has really remembered Jerry! Do Good, be nice, be generous! God will definitely remember you someday.”
