In the ongoing brutal war between Nigerian singer Iyanya and his former business partner cum manager Ubi Franklin, the shots are getting even louder with heavy reverbs.
Ubi Franklin in an interview on Cool FM Lagos declared Iyanya’s hatred for award winning hit maker of the Made Men Music Group, Tekno. He said that the Duro hit maker was never accepted by Iyanya from onset and that he always looked down on him.
Ubi shared WhatsApp chat he had with Iyanya back in 2016 as backup evidence to support his claims. See the below:
Mr. Franklin also made it clear that Iyanya didn’t receive as much royalties from Tekno’s music success since he alone (Ubi) funded and supported his career, despite signed document agreements on a 50/50 terms of revenue shares between the co-owners.
