[News] Iyanya and Ubi Franklin ribbed me off my earnings – Tekno reveals

Tekno has just thrown the internet into some serious pathetic shock after an interview with popular radio personality,
Daddy Freeze.
The singer who has lost form musically,
revealed a lot about his bad medical
condition and how he spent so much on getting remedy to his ill-health till he got broke.
He also talked about how he got frustrated till he had to start visiting native doctors as he was so desperate to be well.
Tekno also talked about how he was so confused about going for a show in
Cameroon or going for his surgery. He
revealed the reason for the confusion was because he was already reaching
bankruptcy and getting frustrated regarding the terrible condition of his health.
Read some of the things he said, “ By this time, I’ve seen like four doctors. I was getting tired, praying, some people go say
na Ubi because is expiring in December, so
like e no wan make I sing again after the contract… someone said it’s a girl, offered me Babalawo… at this time I was already losing my mind it was insane.
“I’ve drank all the medication, they’ve even given me reflux medication that they said I have to drink for two months or at least
three months for the acid in your stomach
to start to go down because all these time
the acid from my stomach was coming up
to my throat and irritating my vocal cords.
so I got tired eventually, went to London, stayed a bit and then I came back to Nigeria…. this is already four months of no
work, no recording, no performance, just spending money from hospital to hospital,
doctor to doctor … somebody even tell me say make I buy goat and cutlass(laughs).
“So I called my mom and said, look, this is what someone told me. My mom started to
cry, I don’t know, maybe she thought I was going to do it. … At this time when I was
talking to my mom on the phone, it was
extremely hard to talk… I kept studying.
Through all these time i’ve been doing vocal
therapy, speaking to different voice coaches
online, just trying to see if there’s a way I
can learn to sing from the inside because
they said that if you can sing from your
bellies… you’ll be able to perform, so I was
just trying anything I could do.
“I was studying and at some point I just
thought, maybe I should get some surgeries
done. In my head, I just felt this is the only
option because I’ve been drinking this reflux
medicine for so long and the acid keeps
boiling my throat. Mind you for the past four
to five months I’ve been sleeping with my
bed laid down like this (he demonstrated
with his hands on what seem to be like a
slant position) with my body up and my
waist down straight. so when I sleep, the
acid doesn’t come up. But since I sleep
crazy, I start my sleep with the
recommended position and wake up with all
parts of my body in a different dimension.
“ I had a show in Cameroon three weeks
after that surgery. so it was after I go and
perform in Cameroon first or I do the
surgery first… why this Cameroon came up
was because, at this time, there was no
money again, at this time I already blew
through everything so I needed that
Cameroon show because that show was
paying me a hundred and ten thousand
dollars for that weekend. so it’s either I do
that surgery, or go and do the Cameroon
show, but I was scared because If I do
Cameroon and perform with an already
irritated voice just because I need money to
balance my bills, I would end up going back
to where I started. So I did the surgery first
and I had three weeks to get fine before I
had to go perform in Cameroon but the
doctor had told me that I needed at least
two months before I can go back on stage
because of the kind of surgery that was
“By this time, I didn’t even know how bad it
is. They cut me in five different places. The
surgery was done by a robot… after the
surgery, I woke up and looked at myself… it
wasn’t a good feeling at all. I couldn’t move,
I couldn’t sneeze, I couldn’t laugh, I couldn’t
breathe, I couldn’t do nothing at all… at this
time now, there’s metal inside of me…”

[News] I and Ubi Franklin do not have anything intimate – TBoss

Ex-Big Brother Naija housemate, Tokunbo Idowu popularly known as Tboss, has
debunked rumors that herself and music executive, Ubi Franklin , were lovers at some
point and that she is expecting his baby.
The 35-year-old made the denial in a live session held with fans on Instagram on Sunday June 2nd.
“Let me just swear to you guys
today, me and Ubi we have had
nothing intimate when I say…we haven’t had as much as kiss…
never…no,” she said. Rumors about them being a couple were
rife last year when these photos of them hanging out in Abuja surfaced online.

Tboss in her live video, stated that her
being pregnant or not is not anybody’s

[News] I wasn’t trying to buy Ubi Franklin’s heart with my money – Lady who is pregnant for Ubi Franklin cries out

Businesswoman, Sandra Iheuwa, who is reportedly pregnant with music executive, Ubi Franklin’s 4th child, has reacted to claims that she helped Ubi with some money to fund his business because she
was depsrate to get married to him after his divorce from his Nollywood actress wife, Lilian Esoro.
In a post she shared on IG this afternoon, Sandra stated that she only offered to help
Ubi because she saw the potential in him and that it was in her nature to offer a lending hand whenever she can. She wrote
When you start treating people they
way they treat you and you no
longer give a fuck they start to play
the victim……..they make up stories
and lies to feed their ego. When
you tried so many times to create
room for peace but you are
constantly pushed to the wall
especially when you are dealing with
a narcissist that don’t care about
anything else but themselves and
most importantly their public image
they will go to any length to save it
especially with bible and
motivational quotes. .
My kindness was definitely taken
for weakness but I’m stronger than
ever. In this part of the world
helping someone of the opposite
sex will turn it into “oh she must be
desperate for marriage”, “oh she
was trying to buy him with her
money”. Y’all know me and my
giving nature I give and never
expect anything in return. If I see
prospects in you and want to willing
invest i do it because I see
potentials it is called support and I
feel like if you were in same
position as me you would do the
same. That is my mindset.
Some of y’all have no idea what I
went through behind the scene
especially from November 2018
(when I found out I was pregnant)
till March 1st 2019 (A day I will
never forget in my entire life) To the
extent I was in the hospital for days
(stroll down my page) I documented
everything to tell my story soon
because no good woman in my
position who loves to help people,
create jobs and get girls off the
street by employing and
accommodating them should never
go through what I went through
PERIOD!!!! Between God and Man. I
will tell my story after I give birth in
a few weeks. I didnt plan this for
myself it was never in my plan but
like they say “when we make plans
God laughs”.
I have a totally different mindset
right now and have become
STRONGER than EVER. I am free
and I’m happy to move on with my
life as there isn’t any greater thing
in this world than PEACE OF
MIND…..but before I move on I will
definitely collect what’s mine and
go through any legal process before
and after I give birth even if I need
to involve the U.S officials I will. I
am a FIGHTER and a WARRIOR after
this no man born of a woman will
come into my life to try and mess it

“I met Ubi Franklin in May 2017 at a concert while on vacation in London I had no idea he was a celebrity or public figure a friend of mine told me who he was. We exchanged contacts and started talking. I returned to America where we later met up
during one of his visits
“As a business woman I could easily relate with him and found him interesting which he
said the same about me. Down the line he came to me seeking funds to help push his business and I totally understood how it felt when money could stop you from achieving
your business dreams. During this time we became very close. “I offered to loan him the sum of Eight million naira not including the ones I gave him in dollars to help with child support and other issues he had. So I got my lawyer draw up a final settlement agreement letter which he agreed to sign as well as his lawyer and agreed to pay on March 8th 2019 “Ubi Franklin has been going around
tarnishing my image since December 2018 paying bloggers to write fake stories about me to save his image and y’all know I

[News] Iyanya has slept with many married women, I have prove – Ubi Franklin

In an exclusive interview with Ubi Franklin where he opened up about having pictures of married women Iyanya has slept with.
He also spoke about the allegations of him “beating up’ Emma Nyra” when she was signed to the label and the Non-disclosure aggrement they signed that prohibits her from speaking else she’ll risk paying him 10million naira.
See excerpts from the interview below….
What Happened With Emma Nyra?

We didn’t agree. You see, Emma
Nyra’s situation, I cannot say much
about it because I am binded by
contract not to say anything about
our situation. I am not going to say
anything about it. Because if I say
anything about it, I have a legal suit
that I’m going to pay 10 million
naira. So, I’m not going to say anything about Emma Nyra. If she
does, I’d have to collect 10 million
because me and Emma Nyra don’t
really have any problem. Even when
she had the twins, we spoke. I even
sent her a message. So, we don’t
have problems. These problems are
problems Iyanya is trying to create
to hype himself up.

Tell Me What You Know About What
Transpired Between Iyanya And
Temple Music?

Yeah, it was a one-on-one
conversation we had at his house.
He showed me a heated WhatsApp
chat with the owner of Temple,
them. That’s why I was able to
believe he was having problems
with Temple. When he wanted to
leave Temple, I told him, ‘Don’t
leave Temple the way you left Made
Men’. Which is, relieve yourself,
settle everything and go. I said, ‘The
fact that you want to leave Temple
doesn’t mean that you should fight
them. It would now become
constant. It can’t be like it’s the
same thing you do everywhere you
go. People would come and be
putting some rubbish things around
it. People you collected money from to
pay your house rent when your landlady chased you out. They gave
you a car. You were stuck in America they paid for you. Have you
spoken to Temple? Ask Iyanya if he
told me that he had issues with
Temple and he needed to clear up
his contract with N60 million. Ask
him if he told me that.

N60 Million, To Exit His Contract?

Yes. And I told him I was going to
raise the money. Before I raised that
money I spoke him. It took me 24
hours or less to raise that money.
When I raised that money I started
calling him, he was not picking up
his phone so I just left it. So for me,
you see all these things Iyanya is
saying ehn, when I look at it I just
laugh. Because I have everything to
prove. I have everything to show. If
this is what Iyanya is going to do
after all my hard work. Now, you
know what? People would comment
and say ‘This Ubi guy, Ubi is like
this, Ubi is like that’. You know why
they’d say that?


All artist managers are hated. You
know why? We do the dirty job. So I
don’t expect anybody to like me.
When we leave these artists and go
that’s when you start seeing who
these artists are directly and you
start to see who they are. Please,
what did he say about Emma Nyra?

That You Had Problems In Your
Relationship And You Physically
Assaulted Her Repeatedly..

Have you asked Iyanya what
happened between him and Yvonne
Was Iyanya Physically Abusing
Yvonne Nelson?

(Laughs) It’s, not my mouth you’d
hear that thing from. I promised not
to say anything or put Iyanya out.

He Said He Saw You Beating Emma


Did He Advise Her To Leave You?

Bro see, Iyanya is a big liar. He has
been saying it for many years that
he is going to use Emma Nyra
against me. You understand? I did
every work for Emma to make sure.
I’m not going to speak about Emma
Nyra unless she talks. We have a
contract binding us not to say
anything. Why didn’t he say on his
interview that I beat up Emma Nyra?

He Did Say That…

Bro, I’d advise you not to. Because
I would put out all the married
women he slept with. Their pictures
side by side for me. Bro I don’t want
to talk. Because if you allow me to
do that to him, I’d drag him through
the whole of this country. I’m not
scared of shit. What I want about
this matter is for people to see
clarity. If Emma Nyra has issues
she would come and say it herself.
Emma Nyra is a mother now. I think
her focus is different. And she even
wouldn’t want to be involved in all
this. I wish Iyanya was a father. If
he was a father, most of these
things he is saying he would not do
it. When I kept watching his
interviews I kept laughing. Bro,
don’t let me do this to this to this
guy. If you’re writing your story, take
out the Emma Nyra situation
because if you’re writing about
something like that, Emma Nyra
needs to speak for herself and with
the way I and Emma Nyra are tight,
we cannot speak about each other.
We had our whole issues and the
issues were settled and I have a
legal document to back it. So for
me, leave her out of this and focus
on something else. Write your post.
See, I never really wanted to get to
this point bro. For everything that
happens, there are two sides to the

Do You Think You Treated Everyone

I treated everybody fair. I’m not
perfect bro. See, there’s nobody
even you talking to me right now
that would say they don’t have
issues with people. Check the whole
entertainment industry. Am I the
first person that an artist is leaving
my record label or an artist is
having issues with me? I’m not the
first now.

When did artists start
leaving record labels?

Exactly, let’s
be very diplomatic about this thing.
Did they say that I had their money,
I ate it and I didn’t give them?

It Was Just About You Not Treating
Them Right That They Had
Expectations And Those
Expectations Were Not Met.

Okay, what expectations?
A More Hands-On Promotion And
Marketing Perhaps?

Can I ask you a question? Iyanya
says he was a partner and he was
investing so why are they not
blaming that on Iyanya? Exactly.
Why is it that it is Ubi they are
blaming it on? Why is it that they
are all coming together to fight? Do
you understand where this thing is
going? You said you are a partner
abi? You were investing. So why are
they not fighting you? Is it that you
gave me money to push your music
and I didn’t do it? So you see the
twist? Now, If they say that the label
is not treating them right who is the
label? Ubi, Iyanya. Why are they not
fighting Iyanya?
Maybe He Has Done Nothing To
Warrant That?
All these people talking, how much
did they make me? Chibbz, how
much did we make from him? The
only person that can talk and I
would respond to the person is only
Iyanya and Baci. I know Selebobo
would not say anything to you
because for a fact he doesn’t have
anything to say to you.

What Role Did You Play In The
Tensions Between Iyanya And

He (Iyanya) says Tekno is rude and
ill-mannered. The issue between me
and Iyanya that made me and
Iyanya break up finally was that I
hired a driver for Iyanya. Iyanya and
the driver fought and he fired the
driver. And Tekno hired the driver.
Tekno was living on his own. So
one day I now went to meet Iyanya
that just in case you come to
Nigeria before me, what I just heard
is that Ken your former driver now
works for Tekno. Tekno, on the
other hand, said he saw this guy on
the road, he had a baby at home
and he decided to hire him. And he
asked him what happened between
you and Iyanya, and the guy
explained his side. So he was like
let me just hire the guy because the
person you know is better than the
person you don’t know. And the guy
worked with Tekno for a very long
So Iyanya started accusing me, of
using Tekno to disrespect him. That
how would I know that Tekno is
about to hire his own driver that he
sacked and I allowed that happen?
That’s how he turned and said he
wants to leave the record label.
Every time issues happen he says
that I am the one not making them,
Tekno, to respect him. I’m like bro,
Tekno is a man of his own.
Everybody, they are men. And I
don’t think any of these guys
disrespect you, they respect you.
From Selebobo they respect you.
They call him “Baba.” They don’t
call him by name. Do you
understand? They call him Baba.
They don’t call him by name. Ask
him what happened between him
and Tekno and what happened
between him and the driver Tekno
hired? Do you understand?
Already, everything he said is a lie.
A lot of the things he said are lies.
So, there is a legal document that is
going to be sent to him soon for
him to retract everything he has
said because he is lying. Whatever I
tell you I have proof. You see the
story I told you about these women?
I have proof of it and I warned him.
I said ‘Listen, I’m going to spoil your
career, let it go’. Do you
understand? I’m going to let it go.
Now he is the one going to tell you
that I beat up Emma Nyra.
