Triple MG boss, Ubi Franklin and singer Tekno flew to New York earlier in the year to sign an international deal with the giant Sony Music which was reportedly worth several millions.
Following the unveiling of Tekno, as the latest ambassador for Pepsi, artiste manager and record label executive has made his thoughts known about it.
Speaking with Sunday Scoop, Ubi said:
“I read the contract properly. It took me about seven weeks to go through the contract with my lawyers internationally and locally. I had to expunge some things and also include some clauses. There is nothing to worry about. In music business, there are times when you would never be happy and there are times when you would be happy so you have to mix and manage both. Tekno’s rise is simply as a result of hard work, prayers and perseverance. Some people pray and they don’t work hard but if you pray and work hard, it will happen for you.”
On his relationship with former business partner, Iyanya, he said:
“I didn’t split from Iyanya. Maybe you should ask him what happened between us. Once a contract is over, you can go if you want to nobody will prevent you from doing so. There is no bad blood between Iyanya and I he is my brother for life.”
