Nigerian singer Iyanya has dismissed claims he called out Triple M record label boss, Ubi Franklin to resuscitate his comatose music career.
Iyanya, in recent interviews, had made claims alleging that the Made Men Music boss, had cheated him.
The ‘Kukere’ singer said Franklin removed all his name from documents submitted at the Corporate Affairs Commission. Although he had signed necessary documents.
However, in a quick reaction, Franklin published some documents, which he, in fact, showed Iyanya’s name, giving the impression that Iyanya was only seeking attention.
In his own defence, Iyanya trying to set the record straight said;
“I just want to focus on music. Right now, my major focus is on my new record label, Violet 360. I was actually doing a media tour for the new label before I got blindsided with the whole Ubi story; that was never meant to be the focus. I see it as a distraction. People can think whatever they like; I have no control over that. I just finished recording a song with Duncan Mighty and I would prefer we focus on that. Very soon, I will be putting out an Extended Play album titled, The Rebirth.”
He also revealed that plans have been set in motion, to see him tell his story in a blood or TV series.
“Don’t worry, I’m going to tell my story soon, probably in a book or TV series; that way, I can make money off it. People have been asking me a lot of questions about that but I will like to keep mum for now.”
As against claims he features Duncan Mighty to resuscitate his music career, Iyanya said:
“Duncan Mighty has always been someone I admire. I respect his talent. Many people think I did the collaboration because Duncan is trending at the moment. But these same people forgot that I did a song with him about five years ago. We were just together recently and we decided to make another song together, and that’s how the latest single came about.”
