Afterwards, Ubi Franklin spilled the beans via another interview with The Cable, where he said they were romantically involved and he had spent heavily on Nyra to build her brand! Click here if you missed it!
In a recent chat with Vanguard however, Emma Nyra opens up further on what really went down with her and her former boss, while still insisting that they never dated and saying she left the group because of Franklin’s abusive nature:
“Obviously, this is a lie” she said in a Whatsapp chat on dating Ubi.
“Ubi and I never dated. Rather he terrorised me for years. He abused me and other members of the label with physical and verbal force. This is why I left Triple MG the first time. He claims he spent money on me but failed to mention that he never gave me my payment for all the tours I have done alongside Iyanya. The true story lies between me and other members of Triple MG who have all chosen to be silent because of fear of one man. I do not support abuse of women or men. That is why I left.
“I don’t want to be involved with anything that has to do with Ubi Franklin ever again” she continued. “Honestly, I don’t want to see my name associated with Ubi in any way. Let these lies die down. I am moving on with my career. Thank God.”
When Vanguard reached out to Ubi Franklin on his side of the story regarding his relationship with Emma Nyra, the Triple MG boss did not say much:
“In every matter of this nature, there is always your side, my side, their side and the truth. Only God knows the truth and in good time, the truth will come to light. God never sleeps. Everything that’s hidden will come to the open in God’s time. No need to speak to defend yourself or defend anyone” he said.
