Cubana Chief Priest is a Nigerian entrepreneur, whose net worth according to estimates is $5 million. He is reported to earn more than $3 million as annual salary.
He was able to achieve this feat as a result of his successful career as an entrepreneur and show promoter.
Cubana Chief Priest was born on March 26, 1982, at Orsu in Owerri, Imo State as Paschal Chubuike Okechukwu. The second son of his parents, he was raised in Orsu, growing up in the company of his siblings.
During his childhood in Imo, he nursed an intense passion for music and desired to be a musician. He has been a die-hard fan of Nigerian musicians since, admiring stars like Lagbaja, Sound Sultan, and others. Due to his voice, Cubana Chief Priest’s music ambition could not be realized; but he was not deterred about becoming a force to reckon with in Nigeria’s entertainment industry.
His rise to fame didn’t occur overnight and can be attributed to his vision, hard work, and determination, which made him a celebrity. When he failed to achieve his dream of being a musician, Cubana Chief Priest ventured into the nightlife business.
The 37-year old is currently the Co-director of Cuban Leisure Outfits, a group of companies including Grand Cubana Hotels, Cubana Night Clubs, Rolex Hotels, Opium Cubana Pablo Cubana, and Crave Cubana. The Owerri-born Nigerian is a show promoter with up to 500,000 followers on Instagram.
He works with a number of A-list music artists in Nigeria, such as Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy, and others. But he seemed to show a special recognition to a particular musician, Davido, who he said changed his life.
On August 19, 2018, the musician came to Owerri with Chioma, his fiancee, to perform, and the occasion brought a massive crowd to the Cubana Grand Hotel, Owerri. This helped to increase Cubana’s popularity.
Cubana Chief Priest was one of Mercy Eke’s major sponsors at BBNaija 2019. When the show was at its twilight, he stated that he owed Mercy five eye-watering endorsement deals when she left the house, whether she won it or not.
Fortunately for Mercy, she emerged the winner of the Pepper Dem edition of BBNaija and went home with a ₦30M cash prize, in addition to a brand new G80 SUV, a full set of home electronic appliances, an all-expense-paid trip for two to Dubai as well as another trip for two to watch a European Cup final of choice.
Cubana Chief Priest was among the strongest supporters of Mercy while in the house. The business mogul campaigned for Lambo (as she is fondly called) with huge amount of money that everyone assumed brought about Mercy’s victory.
However, on winning the popular reality TV show, the relationship between the two of them hit the rocks after he deleted all her photos from his Instagram page and unfollowed her when the star got an audio Moet Hennessey endorsement deal.
According to the rumour mills, Cubana Chiefpriest demanded a favour from her, which she couldn’t do. This provoked the club owner that felt his efforts were not appreciated.
However, recently the bad blood between them seems to have become a thing of the past as they were reportedly seen having a nice time at the Cubana Yatch party, held in Dubai. The Yatch party, which was organized by the entire Cubana Group, involved the Chief Priest himself, alongside Mercy and her boyfriend, Ike, and some members of Cubana.
