Singer, Iyanya, has again found himself in the news, and again, its Ubi Franklin related.
According to Thenet.ng, Iyanya, threatened an OAP with Hit FM Calabar, for darimng to talk about his split from former manager, Ubi Franklin, on his radio show.
The OAP, known as Last Prophet, on August 2, 2016, weighed in on the Iyanya/Ubi issue, talking about their recent split on his Otwetwe
On the show, Last Prophet commented saying :
he wondered if Iyanya was planning to return back to Calabar where he started from
This comment, obviously did not sit well with fans of the singer, who contacted him. Not long, the ‘Oreo’ crooner put a call through to the OAP threatening him.
In the phone conversation which was later leaked, Iyanya was heard saying:
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.
The OAP, Last Prophet, was also contacted for his side of the story and this is whatr he had to say;
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 jokes 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.
Efforts to reach the newly signed Temple Mnagaement Company act proved abortive as at the time of this report
