Popular billionaire socialite Chief Obinna Iyiegbu (Obi Cubana), Chairman Cubana Group has urged wealthy Nigerians to channel their wealth on helping people instead of engaging in unhealthy business competition among themselves.
Obi Cubana who is well known for his philanthropic spirit made this known on Monday in a video he shared on his verified Instagram handle. He captured the video ‘LET’S TALK’
He said, “everyone needs help every now and then. And we can only get help through people. Even when we pray for help, God still uses people to answer that prayer.So you can actually see that we are all connected in this universe.
“Be more collaborative than competitive. Supporting another’s success won’t dampen yours. Lighting another’s candle definitely won’t blow out yours. Be nice to people.
“Maybe it’ll be unappreciated, unreciprocated or simply ignored, it doesn’t matter. Just spread the love anyways; preach love, practice love, show love. Do a little something everyday to help out either at home, office or community because it translates into big things.”
He further said, “When you help others, your life starts to have meaning and purpose. Real joy comes not from material possessions but from people.
“We were called to be human first. So our main priority on earth is to help each other and be our brother’s keeper.
“Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours. At the end of the day, it’s not about what you have or even accomplished, it’ll be about who you’ve lifted or who you’ve made better. I charge you this Monday to dare to reach out into the darkness to pull another person into the light. Seek for who you’ll hold their hands for. Together, we rise!”
