For a long time, many people have wondered why Iyanya and his longtime associate Ubi Franklin of MMMG record label parted ways, and now the singer is spilling everything that happened between them.
According to Iyanya, he co-owned the record label which brought the likes of Tekno to the spotlight, only to discover one day that his name was not even included in the company’s board, even though he claimed he signed the papers for co-partnership.
“What people don’t know is, I didn’t sell my share. People see me and say oh why did you sell your share? I didn’t sell my shares, I left Made Men at the time because there was so much darkness. In the midst of all the wings, I decided to let that go,” said the singer to Ndani TV.
Adding, “When I said it was darkness, I was not myself anymore because I felt like there was no trust anymore. Because at the time I was singing I co-owned Made Men with Ubi but I later realized that my name was not in any of the forms I signed and I was broken and that was the beginning of me just saying to hell with everything.”
And he said a lot more–how Don Jazzy helped him heal, about his relationship with Freda Francis, and more.
