Popular Nigerian socialite and businessman, Obi Cubana, has called on the public to beware of those attempting to use his name to carry out fraudulent acts on social media.
The entrepreneur spoke in a Facebook live session on Friday shortly after the Mark Zuckerberg-owned platform verified his page.
The 46-year-old, born Obinna Iyiegbu, lamented that a lot of people have been using his name to do bad things in recent times.
Obi Cubana said he decided to speak up on the issue because “it is really getting at me.”
He added that his name is not associated with “anything bad or evil.”
“This is my only verified Facebook page. A lot of guys are using my name; Obi Cubana, Obi Iyiegbu to do a lot of bad things on Facebook. The name Obi Cubana is not associated with anything bad or evil. Please disregard, block, report,” he said.
“For me to come up to do this, you guys should know that it is really getting at me. Thank God that Facebook has verified me right now so we can interact more here.”
The businessman said nobody can destroy the name he has struggled to build over the years.
“You can’t destroy what we’ve worked so hard to build over the years,” he added.
Obi Cubana was in the news recently after he was invited by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) over alleged drug links.
