” We must have malice with non, and nurse charity to all”- Sir Abraham Lincoln, in his second inaugural address b,4th March 1865
Though one of Africa’s most prestigious and highly dignified Award brands, Sun newspaper Nigeria recently named him in their 2020 awardee’s list https://www.sunnewsonline.com/wike-kyari-ganduje-bello-buni-onyema-cubana-ado-shaibu-clinch-the-sun-awards-2020/
In my opinion as Africa’s most outstanding humanitarian writer, I feel Chief Obinna Iyiegbu popularly known as Obi Cubana, the upmarket luxury businessman, entertainer, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and a show killer, who is the chairman and the owner of the popular Cabana groups, Obi Cubana deserves More… He ought to be awarded as young African philanthropist of the year.
A tireless giver to all and sundry, Chief Obi Cubana in collaboration with his amiable wife, Ebele Iyiegbu, can be vividly recalled kicked off KIEK Foundation – A Non-Governmental Organization focused on making better the lives of less privileged children in Nigeria and Africa at large.
The Oba -Anambra State-born Philanthropist love for children inspired the establishment of the KIEK Foundation.
Obi Iyiegbu, as the Co-Founder of KIEK Foundation, doesn’t shy away from telling whoever cares to listen to his passionate plans to take Nigerian children off the streets and offer them proper education.
For Obi Iyiegbu, the Foundation is focused on sending over 5,000 children who have been out of school for one reason or the other, back to school to encourage them to get the best of life.
In his words during their last outreach…
“Our major focus is education because when you are educated, you will be able to eradicate poverty and be all that you want to become.
“We are thinking of getting ten thousand children back to school. In few years to come, we want to see the foundation having branches in other parts of the country and before six years to have branches in Africa.
“For the wellbeing of the children, we also conduct hospital visitations during which we pay for those stranded,” he had said in a recent interview.
Obi Iyiegbu’s palpable compassion for the less privileged and passion for humanitarian work also prompted other projects lined up for the KIEK Foundation which includes skill acquisition, talent hunt, and sports competition between IDP Camps.
• Should this manner of man not be recognized more for his philanthropic works than as a mere showman or hospitality mogul? A man who doles out several millions yearly as grants to youths to kick start their business lives
This is my case with Sun award organisers and the general public!
