In an interview with Linda Ikeji’s blog, Iyanya’s former manager, Ubi Franklin, says he is happy for the pop star. When asked if he felt betrayed by the singer, he said:
“We are all human beings; today Iyanya is 30 by age. As a 30-year-old man, you are able to take any decision on your own, you can change your mind, you can do whatever you want to do. The most important thing is that from what I’ve seen, trust me he is happy. Nobody takes a decision that is going to be bad for him.. I still know he still has his own plans for his Label. But at this point, I know Iyanya is where good music comes from. The only way I’ll feel betrayed is if there was something he owed me that and he didn’t give back to me, but there’s nothing like that. I’m happy for him.”
When asked if he sees a future collaboration between his artists and Iyanya, the TripleMG boss said it is very possible, as he is a businessman and therefore open to such and bears no grudge.
“That’s the funny thing about music, everything is possible. When you see people in music having issues, just leave them, the wheel goes round, if you check my snapchat, I’m always dancing to his music. There might be a future collaboration, I’m open to anything. I’m a business man, there is nothing we are fighting for,” Franklin noted.
