So, I went to Abuja. There was a pal that launched me to a lawyer. His title is Obinna. Obinna helped me to do the registration. Then firm registration, if it’s not a lawyer no person can do it. Now it’s truly simpler.
So, Obinna bought all the small print. *Show the corporate’s first CAC Certificates that was registered. Might 21st 2012.
I’ve loads of paperwork that Iyanya had signed that may show that this was his signature.
I gave shares to my brothers as a result of you may’t be on the shares solely you.
*Dotun: The primary CAC doc, Iyanya was not a part of the shares from the start?
Ubi: Sure, And I can say that all over the place. That is proof. He mentioned he was curious about doing the enterprise facet of music. We parted methods in 2016.
After we registered this firm, enterprise was probably not going properly. Issues had been truly tough.
So, In August or September 2012, we now have gone for a prime authorities official mother’s burial in Delta State. So after we alighted from the flight, I noticed a lady carrying a bag. I now advised Iyanya, I don’t know who that lady is. See that lady, go after her, assist her and carry her bag. She could be the lady that may assist us. You understand we’re searching for cash, she could be the lady that may assist us.
Iyanya went and helped the lady, they began speaking and gisting, So I minimize up with them. We had been simply speaking. Then she now launched who she was. She works at Entry Financial institution at the moment. She revealed that her children love Iyanya and his songs. On the time Kukere was reigning.

So after we bought again to Lagos after the journey to Asaba, Delta state. I contacted the lady. I mentioned, MA I do know you’re employed in a financial institution, issues have been robust for us. We are attempting to push Iyanya and all the pieces. Is it attainable for us, on your financial institution to provide us a mortgage? ”
She now mentioned, Yeah certain. Come to the workplace.
We went to their workplace in VI and we spoke to them and all the pieces. And he or she mentioned, can she see our CAC doc. I introduced that.
So after I offered the doc, she seemed on the doc and came upon that Iyanya’s title was not on the doc. She now mentioned, “Ubi, If Iyanya’s title shouldn’t be on this doc we will’t provide the mortgage as a result of it’s Iyanya we all know.
So I turned and checked out Iyanya, he put his head on the ground. He knew he tousled at the moment as a result of that is enterprise for us, and I all the time advised him, if I ask you to do one thing, let’s do it. As a result of it won’t make sense now however it may make sense tomorrow.
She mentioned we must always return to CAC and rectify the doc. We went again to CAC in September 2012 and we bought new doc. This doc reveals Iyanya. October 2012.

I come from a really correct authorized background and those who know me, is aware of that I used to be despatched to school to learn legislation. I do know the authorized implications of forgery. It’s the simplest method to go to jail. I might by no means do this.
Barrister Obinna made a mistake with Iyanya’s title. So much spell Iyanya on the web.
So after we got here again, they authorised the mortgage.
Freda Francis, I’m sorry to say this. She was the individual that gave us safety for the mortgage. To again up the mortgage. We pushed kukere to the subsequent stage. We did a video for ‘your waist ‘. We wanted to push the face with the tune, that’s why we acquired the mortgage.
We signed the relinquishing share doc that claims that all the pieces the corporate’s make, we’re going to make 50/50.
In late 2012, we had gone to Abuja to document a tune. A younger man (Tekno) walked into the studio. And began singing, “Ekaete loves to bop”. I used to be impressed. After I see a very good expertise, I’m up for it. So I used to be impressed. So I met him after the entire thing and requested if he was signed. He mentioned sure for now. I advised to let me know when his contract expires.
Iyanya doesn’t like Tekno and I’ve proof to show that.
Later, Tekno referred to as me and I despatched him my home tackle. We had been transferring to a brand new home then. I contacted his lawyer. We did all of the documentation.
Iyanya was on Tekno’s album, Ekaete loves to bop. I requested Iyanya if he remembers Tekno, on the music album. Can we signal him.
Iyanya advised me level clean, I don’t need to be a part of something artiste. I need to give attention to my profession and I’m not curious about signing any artiste.
I gave Tekno a room downstairs in our new home. Tekno mentioned he can’t keep downstairs and believes he ought to keep upstairs. So I reasoned, he isn’t just an upcoming artiste as a result of he already has his songs, vacation and Onyeneku singing on radios.
I went upstairs and advised Iyanya, let’s take this man upstairs and all that. Iyanya was fuming and mentioned he doesn’t need to do it.
Freda Francis referred to as me. She was there when all these had been taking place. She referred to as me and mentioned, ”Ubi, I do know you’re a nice enterprise man and I do know that when your thoughts tells you one thing that one thing is gonna be proper, that factor will occur. Please if you understand that you are able to do this factor and sooner or later it should prove proper, please do it”.
I mentioned, you don’t must even inform me, Me I do know I’m gonna do it. As a result of we have to guarantee that it’s not simply from Iyanya.
Regardless of my companion Iyanya reluctance in signing the deal, I consider that Tekno was gonna an enormous star. I had no doubts about that. When you stick with Tekno you’ll like to even sing.
Iyanya by no means spent a dime on selling Tekno. If he says he has spent, he ought to convey the proof.
I spent lots making an attempt to shoot Tekno’s video “If I dance. Issues had been actually tough for me after I shot that video. It didn’t decide up as a lot.
In 2015, Tekno did Duro and that was when issues picked up for Tekno.
On the 30 million naira, Iyanya claimed Tekno made and he bought solely N145,000.
Ubi mentioned, I had payments to clear. Payments that I incurred making an attempt to advertise Tekno.
So in early 2016, Tekno has began making a living. Iyanya got here to me and requested why he isn’t making a living from Tekno. And I advised him, “Bro you may’t earn cash. You possibly can’t come to me like that. You might be even speculated to be apologizing to me for not bringing a dime to selling Tekno.
Earlier than we began making a living, I needed to switch the administration of Tekno as a result of I had too many artistes to handle.
So Paulo tried to settle us. In New York. He suggested I give Iyanya a proportion out of no matter Tekno is making. I thought of it and agreed. So after giving Tekno his personal share, I and Iyanya shared the remaining 50/50. And he thanked me and left. I’ve proofs. Whatsapp messages. Iyanya bought more than N145,000 from Tekno’s deal. I’ve proofs.
I had payments to clear however Paul mentioned he was gonna clear the payments and any cash that is available in, we’re gonna take that cash to offset his personal facet of the enterprise.
From the messages, Iyanya mentioned he was bored with Paul sitting down, amassing cash and doing nothing. I advised him, he wanted to relax. As a result of at that time, Paul was making an attempt to assist us shut up loads of payments that we had incurred.
This occurred for about 5 months. And Iyanya left in July.
So when Iyanya was leaving. He mentioned he wished to depart all the pieces, that he doesn’t need to have something to do with the corporate.
In July, I began getting emails from him for a settlement contract. At that time, I didn’t know he was going to that label that he went to. So I didn’t know that the lawyer that got here with was represented by***. You understand the 2 labels are***.
On the settlement settlement, which I posted on-line, Iyanya relinquished his shares on the corporate. All of the shares. He transferred the shares to me.
I despatched my cousin to persuade him to not depart. He despatched me a message to me that I ought to assist him arrange himself. I promised him that. That was earlier than he went to the opposite label.
I’m not addressing this subject once more even when they carry the entire allegations in opposition to me. If anyone comes right here to take a seat down and tarnish one other particular person’s picture, please ask them to convey proofs.
These are proofs of what I spent. Payments of meals we ate. At reveals. I spent cash. I’m a businessman.
If anyone is coming at me, they need to come out clear.
I’m not excellent. Neither is anybody listening to me. Iyanya ought to level one particular person he helped on this life. (Dotun: Ahh that’s getting private)
I need to tackle this, music managers, we take all of the blows. We take all unhealthy vibes. As a result of you understand we all the time do, we inform the artist to remain behind let’s go and do the soiled job. So excellent may hate me. Ubi you might be this, Ubi you might be that. Good, it’s as a result of I do the soiled job. We’re representing the artist. As a result of we all know the fireplace the artist is giving us again.
Until December 2018, once in a while after I meet him. I ask him how far. Iyanya’s profession is private to me.
I don’t tackle anyone’s points and after as we speak I’ll really feel unhealthy for myself.
I really feel unhealthy for myself. I’m right here on the detriment of son’s inter home sports activities. I really feel unhealthy for myself. So for no matter motive, I’m right here to clear myself and put the information straight.
I’m a enterprise man, I don’t exit to defraud anyone. I spend money on enterprise. I run seven companies. If I see a viable enterprise that I believe it’s gonna be, I spend money on it.

Okay everybody, it doesn’t matter what I say right here, I would look the nice man to some individuals and appear to be the unhealthy man to some individuals. I’m not right here to throw anyone beneath the bus. Iyanya, love youuuu. I care about you. You understand that even prior to now, I all the time come by for you.
