Former MTN Project Fame winner Iyanya went into a moment of rage when he allegedly threatened a Calabar based radio personality cum comedian known as Last Prophet after an interview for asking the musician about his relationship with his ex-label boss Ubi Franklin.
The raunchy lyricist who obviously didn’t like the question posed by the radio personality reportedly called Last Prophet later on in the day and expressed his disgust at the nature of the question asked by the presenter and also reportedly used threatening words.
“I don’t depend on my strive (sic), but I depend on God to take me further, this is Iyanya speaking, brother let this be the first and the last time that you will make that kind of statement that you made about me on your show. I have never had any issue with you; don’t ever in your whole life mention my issue with Ubi on your show. I’ve had different people call me to make that report, the next time you do I’ll show you another side of me”. Iyanya thundered in the leaked phone conversation.
Reacting to the call moments after, the radio personality who said he was only making a joke out of the situation when he asked the question said; ‘‘I was shocked at Iyanya’s phone call. I’m a comedian and OAP, my show is a comedy show in Pidgin English. All I did was make a joke from the situation, which is what anyone else would have done. I only feel bad because I’m sure he would not do that to any OAP in Lagos; he did it to me because he feels I’m in Calabar and he can just threaten me like that.
