Ubi Franklin denies cheating Iyanya out of co-ownership of Made Men Music

The CEO of Made Men Music Ubi Franklin has denied claims made by his former label artiste, Iyanya who recently revealed that he was cheated out of co-ownership of the record label.

Reacting via a post on his Instagram page to the claims made by Iyanya, Ubi Franklin said Iyanya lied to the world to make himself look good as he also shared a series of documents and conversation between himself and his former music partner dating back to 2016.

He 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”.

Recall that Iyanya, during an interview with Ndani TV, spoke on his fallout with his boss, saying he did not sell his share of the label but decided to leave Made Men Music because there was so much ‘darkness’ there at the time.

“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.

“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,” he had said.
