The singer who recently featured in Beyonce's "The Lion King: The Gift Album", gave more insight about the battle after damaging his vocal cord about two years ago.
He explained that he cracked his voice while performing one day and things went downhill from there.
He flew to London when things got serious, and then to the US.
At some point, the singer said, he had to go quiet for three weeks, using an app to communicate with others.
Eventually, he had to get surgery done after series of gruesome tests. Surgeons had to install a metallic substance to prevent stomach acid from flowing back into his oesophagus.
He also said around the time he was going through this was when photos of him and Drake made the rounds on social media. Unfortunately, they couldn’t make music together because of the situation with his voice.
He said the label was getting 60% of all his profits, but he's not sure if Iyanya, who was then co-owner of MMMG got anything from the cash.
When asked if he’s going back, he said: “hell no” - adding that a lot of crazy stuff went down there while he was with the label..
But he’s not going to say anything about the Ubi Franklin and Iyanya war of words.
He disclosed that two years into his deal with MMMG, he wanted to leave because a lot of things were going on and he couldn’t say who was to blame, but Paul Okoye stepped in and cooled things off. He said it would have made sense if Iyanya spoke up at the time.
He said he’s now running his own record label – Cartel.
