Frank loved to meet and talk with Kuba. He invited us for our first dinner to The Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel. Frank loved to stay at the hotels. He lived at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills by himself. Kuba did visit him sometimes there, having breakfast or lunch with Frank around the pool there. Frank wanted to change Kuba image, he suggested body building for Kuba and other things. He moved us from Linda Evans' house to The Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire Hotel in January 2009 and we stayed there for 2 years at the apartment 202. It was a great time for us. There, Kuba met Whitney Houston and her daughter and became friends. Whitney lived there for a while and wanted to record a song with Kuba. But as we all know Whitney started to have problems with her health and it was very sad to all of us. Kuba loved Whitney Huston’s voice and her beauty, she was beautiful outside and inside.
Kuba was working on his physique at The Gym at The Beverly Wilshire Hotel with his private coach. He loved working out and taking care of his body! He grew into a very handsome, young man with a nice built! Frank DiLeo took care of Kuba’s voice as well. Kuba’s vocal coach was Michael Jackson’s vocal coach Seth Riggs. Kuba enjoyed the vocal lessons with Seth Riggs and his wife Margareta Svensson Riggs who was also a vocal coach. Frank DiLeo wanted to make Kuba the God of Pop!!! On June 25, 2009 suddenly Michael Jackson passed away! We have seen from the window of our room at The Beverly Wilshire Hotel the helicopter over Michael Jackson's house in Holmby Hills and we got the message from Frank about Michael’s death. I remember Kuba was shock and was crying in our room. Kuba loved Michael since his early childhood. Kuba met Michael first time in Warsaw in Poland when he was just 10 years old. Michael Jackson’s funeral was a big event at The Beverly Wilshire Hotel in the Ball Room.
Frank DiLeo signed with Kuba the official agreement to be his manager a few days after Michael Jackson’s death. Kuba was the last artist under Frank DiLeo’s management in his life. Frank wrote his statement about Kuba’s talent as Kuba’s Manager in an article in Variety Magazine.
