The life of Cubana Chief Priest, whose given name is Pascal Chibuike Okechukwu, is best described with two words; fame and fortune. Paschal is a celebrity show promoter, renowned nightclub owner, and businessman who enjoys endorsement deals from a good number of big companies like Hennessy and Moet. Through all of his hard work, the Nigerian entertainer has amassed a net worth estimated to be around 1.2 billion Naira, a fortune that is believed to be still growing with his unrelenting go-getter nature.
Cubana Chief Priest has as a result of his wealth, been rather overt in his lifestyle, spending millions of naira on very expensive automobiles. His fleet of cars is made up of some of the best brands you can get in the automobile industry. The celebrity show promoter has been seen around town in a Range Rover Sport, Rolls Royce, and many more.
Cubana Chief Priest Made His Fortune From Doing A Number of Things
Cubana Chief Priest is one celebrity whose source of wealth has sparked a lot of questions from the authorities and the general public. On the 19th of June 2020, his flamboyant lifestyle attracted the attention of the Nigerian police who arrested and interrogated him about the source of his wealth. He was, however, later released from custody, meaning that no wrongdoing was found to charge him to court.
Since then, the source of Pascal’s fortune has become clearer to the public. The Naira billionaire is a big show promoter, a veteran businessman, and his fame has attracted several lucrative endorsements.
He Started Life as a Shoe Maker
The source of wealth of Cubana Chief Priest can not be talked about without paying homage to the first job he ever did in life. Pascal was still a student at Nekede Polytechnic in Owerri when he was disowned by his father. This led to his decision to join some family members in Aba, Abia State to learn shoemaking. The young man took his apprenticeship seriously and was able to make his first million from the trade.
He Rose To Fame as a Show Promoter
When Cubana Chief Priest was still in his formative years, he had an intense passion for the performing arts and desired to end up as a musician. His passion led him to become a raving fan of Nigerian artists like Sound Sultan and Lagbaja, however, his mother tongue and voice put an end to that dream.
When it began to look like his ambition to become a musician had become an impossible dream, he went ahead to create a niche for himself in the entertainment industry by leveraging an opportunity given to him by the CEO of Cubana Group, Obi Cubana. Today, he is a celebrity show promoter and has worked with artists like Davido, Burna Boy, Wizkid, BBNaija Mercy Eke, and many more.
According to Cubana Chief Priest, it was thanks to Davido that his life turned around. It all started on the 19th of August 2018 when the Assurance crooner performed at the Cubana Grand Hotel Owerri. His presence attracted a mammoth crowd which boosted Cubana’s popularity. The clout he gathered on that day has remained with him and he has since maintained a friendship with Davido.
Breakdown of All His Business Interests
Cubana Chief Priest was still doing his petty trading in Aba when he came into contact with Cubana Prime Minister, whose real name is Lucky Bruno Ndukwe. Bruno works with the Cubana Group as the company’s executive director and was responsible for connecting Pascal to Obi Cubana, the chief executive officer of the company.
According to reports, Obi Cubana already considered himself unsuitable to become the perfect public figure for the group because of his reserved and enigmatic disposition. Thus, he was happy to get somebody as outgoing, charismatic, and loyal as Cubana Chief Priest to be the face of the Company.
Pascal worked with the company for a few years as the General Manager and Executive Director before resigning to float his own nightclub known as Club Xhrine located in Owerri, Imo State. The club was opened in December 2020 with a show hosted by Davido.
Was Cubana Chief Priest Ever the CEO of The Cubana Group?
As stated above, Cubana Chief Priest was never the chief executive officer of Cubana Group. That title goes to Obi Cubana aka Obinna Iyiegbu who brought Paschal on board and made him the company’s public face. Obi Cubana’s reason for choosing Paschal was that he believed the Cubana Group (the Cubana night clubs, Grand Cubana hotels, Rolex hotels, Opium Cubana, Pablo Cubana, and Crave Cubana) demanded a charismatic personality like that of Cubana Chief Priest.
Paschal only ever served as the Group’s general manager and executive director. People saw him as the owner of the brand because of the important role he played as the face of the brand.
As his fame grew, the charismatic show promoter began to attract a lot of endorsements from top-notch brands, and from what is obvious, more brands are interested in signing him up. Below is a comprehensive list of the brands he has ever endorsed.
- Moet – Brand ambassador
- Hennessy – Brand ambassador
- Bullet energy drink – Brand influencer
- Mikano Motors – Brand ambassador
