Emma Nyra and Ubi Franklin had their own share of public fallout before Ubi and Iyanya’s issues surfaced. Emma Nyra had a misunderstanding with Ubi Franklin back in 2014 – 2015 and it didn’t end well. It was around the time that Ubi married his ex-wife, Lilian Esero.
Ubi said that he dated Emma Nyra and that he’s spent a lot of money on her and she didn’t make any money back for the MMMG record label. Emma Nyra hit back that they never dated, and she said that Ubi was very abusive towards her.
“I don’t think that I have spent as much money on Iyanya as I’ve spent on Emma Nyra. Emma has like nine videos at about N3.5m. She has a lot of materials out there. For Emma, I just believe that when God says it’s her time, it’s her time. I’ve tried to fix the whole American thing for a while but I still pray God gives her the hit I think she deserves because I’ve spent a lot of money on her. I was dating Emma Nyra and the relationship didn’t go as I thought it should have gone.” – Ubi Franklin
Emma Nyra, when asked if she dated her former boss Ubi Franklin; she said “ No…never…See, I get that him and Iyanya but no. We have a business together and I never dated any of them so, yeah. I swear I never dated any of them”.
Emma Nyra and Ubi Franklin’s drama happened in 2015, Emma Nyra left Triple M G the same year.
Now that Ubi and Iyanya’s drama came out, she used that opportunity to pick a side. She did not mention Ubi’s name but her followers were able to link the message to Ubi. “Money isn’t the root of all evil, lies are. Money doesn’t lie. People do. God knows the truth. God sees all. Maybe one day you will realize that money is not the essence of life. Better go and find peace and happiness. I’m enjoying motherhood and my family comes first #NoDrama” Emma Nyra wrote on her twitter page.
She thinks Ubi should value other things more than he valued money.
