Popular socialite and celebrity barman Pascal Okechukwu, better known as Cubana Chiefpriest, has disclosed that the constant insecurity in the South East was the reason behind highlife singer Flavour’s decision to carry out his father’s funeral rites in Enugu, rather than their ancestral home in Anambra.

Chief Priest, who was among the prominent figures who joined Flavour on Saturday, June 8, to pay a last respect to his dad, lamented the security challenges plaguing the country's southeastern part.

In a heartfelt message to Southeasterners, the barman urged them to unite to tackle the insecurity that has disrupted communities.

He stressed that people from the South East region must not destroy their homeland in response to marginalization.

Chiefpriest noted that succumbing to such actions only serves to fulfil the aims of those who seek to disorganize and destabilize the South East.

Sharing a video from Flavour's father's burial after-party, Chiefpriest wrote in part:

"This Amazing Funeral Was Supposed To Be Happening In Umunze Anambara State But Here We Are In Enugu Managing It. Umunne We Need To Come Together And Fix This, It's No Longer interesting. We Cannot Destroy Our Own Because We Are Being Marginalized."
