Iyanya and Ubi Franklin in online war of words over singer's exit from TripleMG

Former friends and business partners, Iyanya Mbuk and Ubi Franklin, are currently engaged in an online war of words.

The duo who previously co-owned Made Man Music Group (MMMG) fell out after Iyanya left the record label.

However, in a recent interview with NdaniTV’s “The Juice“, Iyanya said it was upon his exit that he discovered that his name was not on any of the forms for establishing the company.

He said Mavin Records boss, Don Jazzy helped him through his days of disagreement with  Ubi Franklin.

The singer said:
“I didn’t sell my shares. I left Made Men at the time because there was so much darkness… I needed to move so I let that go”.

“Jazzy gave me that platform to put music out because I left Made Men and I didn’t want anything from Made Men”.

“People thought I signed to Mavin but it wasn’t like a legal signing, it was all love”.

“I really don’t like to talk about all this stuff but I also feel like sometimes you have to clear the air and it’s a good thing that you’re asking this. When I say there was darkness, I was not myself anymore because I felt like there was no trust anymore. Because at the time I thought I co-owned Made Men with Ubi but I later realized that my name was not on any of the forms… That was the beginning of me just saying ‘To hell with everything’.”

Responding to the claim, Franklin took to his Instagram page showing pictures of a settlement agreement document with Iyanya.

The documents included Iyanya’s signature, while indicating a sum of N200,000 paid to the musician.

Ubi wrote:
"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 🙏🏾 "
Iyanya, who came into fame after winning the first season of MTN Project Fame, denied knowledge of the documents in a latest interview with Daddy Freeze, an on-air-personality with Cool FM.

He insisted he only found out years later that he was not included as a co-director of the record label, though he had signed an incorporation form, which was not submitted by Franklin.
“He posted a settlement agreement that we had in 2016. If you want to prove your innocence, why don’t you post the incorporation certificate of the company when you first registered in 2012… Ok everybody ask yourself this question before you have to settle an agreement, what happened? We don’t just wake up and say, let us settle an agreement,” he said.

“He had already brought a CAC form to me before when I signed that paper, he left my room. And a couple of years later, I keep going around telling people I co-owned this thing. I took a flight to Abuja and I didn’t tell anybody, and I requested for it (CAC form). Bro, the day I got that form from them guys from CAC, it changed my whole life.

“I found the same form I filled but my name was not there as a director. It was Ubi’s brother name that was there. I took a picture I did everything, I confronted him, this guy begged me, he apologized to me…The same person is coming out now to put whatever he is posting, to lie again… that’s why it is shocking.”
Iyanya said he is set to debut a record label, ‘Violet 360’,  with Alexander Okunsaya for his new single titled, ‘No Drama’.
