What I Told Emma Nyra To Do When Ubi Franklin Was Abusing Her – Iyanya
Iyanya Onoyom Mbuk, professionally known as “Iyanya” has shared that his former record label mate, Emma Nyra, once suffered physical abuse from record label owner, Ubi Franklin, during their time at MMG record label.
Iyanya who made this revelation during an interactive session with Joey Akan shared that he asked Emma to leave since she was being treated with disdain.
In his own words;
“You know, from that day till I left Triple MG, Ubi was my enemy, but we dey together. I played safe because I saw what he did to Emma Nyra. I saw how he oppressed her when she left him. You understand? I saw all the stunts wey him go dey do. You know how all this industry sh** dey be,” he said.
Then Joey asked: “How Did The People In The Label Feel About The Emma Nyra Situation?” Iyanya said:
We were not happy yeah, nobody was happy. My own advice to Emma at the time was: “Yo, if the nigga is treating you like this, I’d support you to leave.” But sometimes when you give people that kind of advice, they may think you’ve actually been wanting them to break up since
You understand me? Instead of seeing you trying to save them. Cos I was like; ‘look, this shit is getting out of hand man, we no know the next one wey go happen where they go hit your head somewhere you die.’ Before that time, I dey tell her say, report to your parent. let your parents step in.”
