Iyanya and Ubi Franklin’s friendship seems all but over after the singer revealed how Ubi allegedly scammed him of his due wages.
Iyanya and Ubi Franklin have both been at each other’s throat for a while now, and the latest in their story sees the Kukere crooner blast Ubi for giving him only N145K from Tekno’s hit song, Duro.
Iyanya revealed this in an exclusive interview with Daddy Freeze at Cool FM. According to Iyanya, Ubi gave Tekno the impression that he didn’t like him which he later found out. He went on to reveal that despite the fact that Tekno made N30M from his hit song ‘Duro,’ he got only N145K.
“Tekno told me that he won’t lie to me that since Duro came out that he has made over N30M. I had gotten only N145K 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 here 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 cant struggle that stuff with you. He was like ‘no no no bro…i don’t think you understand me, I have made over N30M from Duro’. That was the first fight I had with Ubi, it was so serious,” he said.
“I was in the car with Tekno when he said ‘Hey bro, I can’t believe you are talking to me like this and you are being free with me and he said because Ubi said you don’t like me’ and I’m like why? What did you do to me that would make me hate you? I have always loved you from time. That made me realize that there was a problem,” Iyanya said.
