Every now and then we hear of Artiste and Record Labels falling out, Sometimes the growth rate becomes an issue warranting the artiste taking charge of their own affairs, In some instances it works out well ‘not after some tension but other times it’s a bad business decision.
Iyanya‘s recent announcement about floating a new record label and the subsequent release of a new song without the logo of his current MMMG label attracted some attention and rumours were spread.
Many believed that his decision was borne out of a recent fight with his manager and partner, Ubi Franklin while another school of thought says, Ubi’s wife, Lilian Esoro is at the core of the rift between erstwhile buddies.
Well, our sources confirmed that truly there is a misunderstanding and the ship of reconciliation sailed about three months ago when Iyanya made some startling discoveries.
We gathered that Iyanya actually went into Business with Ubi with the notion that they co-owned a record label, meaning all major decisions were not made solely, but unknown to him ‘ He had the same Status as Techno, Emma Nyra and Baci. The bubble burst about three months ago when Iyanya decided it was time to take action but that was quelled by 5 star Lable Boss and Brother to Kcee , E-money who advised the partners not to take the issue to the public
Remember that the MMMG logo missing from Iyanya’s new song titled ‘Ayaya’.
While Ubi Franklin seems to be holding on to the peace accord by remaining silent on the matter when contacted, The Singer who is currently in the United States took to social media to clear the air.
His words, ‘all these are lies. I’m not fighting Ubi. His wife is the best woman in the world for him, she is a good woman, she’s a good cook too. You guys please chill’.
