Ubi, Iyanya Trade Blame Over Tekno’ s ‘ Duro ’
Iyanya and Ubi Franklin have continued to
accuse and counter accuse each other as to what really
transpired between them when they were partners at
Triple MG .
Part of Iyanya ’ s beef , which he revealed in a recent
interview with Daddy Freeze, is that Ubi betrayed him
when he chose to omit his name from their partnership
contract . He also lamented not receiving more than N 145,
000 from one of their artistes on the label , Tekno’ s career ,
even though just one of Tekno’ s songs , ‘ Duro, ’ made
N 30 m .
According to Iyanya , he gathered this information from the
artiste himself , who also revealed that Ubi had told him
(Tekno ) that Iyanya does not like him ( which explains why
they weren ’ t on talking before then ) and it was during this
conversation that Tekno revealed how much the
mentioned song , ‘ Duro, ’ made.
“ Tekno told me that he won ’ t lie to me that since ‘ Duro ’
was released , he has made over N30 m . Meanwhile, I got
only N145, 000 from Tekno ’ s career for the whole time .
Do you know why I was this open to him? I didn ’ t want
him to think I was just there on the boss side, chopping
your money and the whole thing , so I was like bro why
would I hate you ? I don’ t even take your money , that’ s
how much I love you . I don’ t go for your money because I
know you are young and you just started so whatever you
are making now , I can ’ t struggle for that with you . He was
like ‘ no bro , I don’ t think you understand me , I have made
over N 30 m from ‘ Duro. ’ That was the first fight I had with
Ubi , it was so serious , ” he revealed .
To confirm the figure, Iyanya said he went to the
Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) to confirm and there
he saw the contract he signed but this time , the contract
was without his name and contained the names of Ubi
Franklin’ s brothers instead . This revelation caused yet ,
another issue between them .
Speaking further , Iyanya revealed there are so many
people Ubi Franklin has hurt , saying it’ s about time he
stops hurting people because his deceit and hurt are
affecting the lives of many.
On his part , Franklin debunked the allegations . The boss
of Made Men Music Group , who since the release of the
interview has not responded , finally did on Monday and
the only resounding response to all of Iyanya’ s allegations
is that he ( Iyanya) is a liar . According to Ubi , Iyanya has
lied to the world to make himself look good and his
contract will prove that, saying he prefers resolving issues
behind closed doors and not on social media, adding
since the issue has been taken public, he’ ll be releasing an
interview very soon to address what truly happened .
‘‘It ’ s very unfortunate that someone I took as my brother
would lie to the world to make himself look good , he said . ’’
He followed this by advising that people always wait to
hear both sides of the story before they start calling
people names , insisting Iyanya lied to make himself look
‘‘I have never fought anyone I worked with , dated or
married , publicly and I swore never to do that. We try to
settle things in house and if that can ’ t happen we call on
elders to mediate, it has always worked . Thank you , ” he
All the best to them
Please try and settle up
