Following the unveiling of Tekno as the latest ambassador for Pepsi, Triple MG boss, Ubi Franklin, as made his thoughts known about it.
Speaking with Sunday Scoop, Ubi said:
“I read the contract properly. It took me about seven weeks to go through the contract with my lawyers; internationally and locally. I had to expunge some things and also include some clauses. There is nothing to worry about. In music business, there are times when you would never be happy and there are times when you would be happy so you have to mix and manage both. Tekno’s rise is simply as a result of hard work, prayers and perseverance. Some people pray and they don’t work hard but if you pray and work hard, it will happen for you.”
On his relationship with Iyanya:
“I didn’t split from Iyanya. Maybe you should ask him what happened between us. Once a contract is over, you can go if you want to nobody will prevent you from doing so. There is no bad blood between Iyanya and I; he is my brother for life.”
The record label boss also hinted that he has plans to diversify into the movie industry.
“I am actually doing a lot of TV and movie productions right now. They wouldn’t necessarily feature my wife though; it depends on who fits the role. Meanwhile, I just signed three new artistes and I would be unveiling them soon,” he said.
Ubi, who has been in the news for a while now, was dumped by his wife of barely one year following rumors of domestic violence and infidelity.
