“We all took out time to celebrate our brother (Obi Cubana) due to his support and investment in others. It was a burial but also a celebration of life for his mother.
“Now ask yourself how have you impacted others around you? Lessons from the burial; hard work and being selfless for others pays and Obi Cubana epitomises that.
“Helping those in your circle to grow is a huge social capital investment. What is your social capital?
