Instagram influencer Pascal Okechukwu, known as Cubana Chief Priest, was seen at a wedding party in Abuja on Saturday transferring cash to a hype man, days after his arraignment for naira abuse.

In an Instagram story shared by Davido’s logistics manager, Israel Afeare, Cubana Chief Priest, dressed in white native attire, was spotted transferring cash to a hype man as he danced. 

The video, which also saw the socialite asking the hype man to confirm receipt of the transfer, was captioned “strictly on transfer.”

As of 8:30 p.m., Cubana Chief Priest was still at the party, as confirmed by fellow attendees who spoke with Peoples Gazette. The wedding between Maureen and Samuel Adekunle was held at JD Leisure Park.

Cubana’s Chief Priest’s choice of transferring instead of spraying the naira notes comes days after he was arraigned on three count charges by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for naira abuse and subsequent release on a N10 million bail.

Following his release on bail, the court adjourned the case until May 2 for the hearing of the preliminary objection, signifying a pause in the legal proceedings surrounding his situation.
