Former member and shareholder of Made Men Music, Iyanya, recently granted an interview where he revealed that Ubi Franklin deliberately sidelined him from partly owning the record label.
The music star also explained that, although he signed documents pertaining to the part ownership of the music label, he was a puppet used by Ubi Franklin without a kobo to his name.
He further said that when he found out that he had been removed from the company without his knowledge, he felt betrayed and also slipped into depression which led him to leave Made Men Music.
Many were shocked by this revelation and jumped on the comment section to lash out at him. They felt it was a ploy to gain sympathy and music collaborations. Some insulted Ubi Franklin and called him a fraudster, saying he was dubious, while others refused to judge from Iyanya's side of the story alone.
Ubi Franklin was alerted about the interview, which has since gone viral. He replied with resignation documents signed by Iyanya relinquishing his position and shares, which he transferred to Ubi Franklin on the 27th of July, 2016.
Shocked by the interview Iyanya granted, Ubi Franklin replied thus:
It’s very unfortunate that a person I took as my brother had to lie to the world to make himself look good. Always wait for both sides of the story to call people names. Here is to prove that Iyanya lied to make himself look good. Exclusive interview dropping in 1hour. I have never fought anyone I have 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 🙏🏾
