One time Nigerian A-list singer, Iyanya, said his former record label mate, Emma Nyra, once suffered physical abuse from record label owner, Ubi Franklin.
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.
He said, “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
Singer, Iyanya also promised to give Emma Nyra his full support, after he witnessed Ubi Franklin assault her.
He said, “You know him ehn, he always has his ‘bro i’m sorry.., you know…it happened…and it happened because I was not very sure.’ I was not very what? You brought me a paper and I signed it. You took the one I signed and did whatever you did and put your own.
“Long story short, we went back and forth they now corrected it. But by that time, I don already give up on everything. I con dey live with one kind fear say men, this guy can actually kill you.
“If this nigga dey watch you dey spend all this money, this nigga dey watch you dey put in all this creativity, this nigga dey watch you dey do all these things, this nigga know say you get two sisters wey you dey take care of wey no get papa.
“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 poo dey be”
