Ubi Franklin definitely knows what he and his brand, MMMG Entertainment has to offer and we all know what it is like to be signed to one of the top Record Labels in the country.
With the record of splits and messy breakups that trail Nigerian record labels and artistes, the manager is assured that he would not be falling victim
As it would be recalled, one of his signees, Augustine Miles Kelechi aka Tekno, flew to New York earlier in the year to sign an international deal with the giant Sony Music.
The deal was reportedly worth $4m, but both parties have repeatedly refused to speak on the details of the deal.
Speaking on his plans to safe guard his relationship with the artiste, Franklin told Sunday Scoop,
“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.”
Addressing the perceived beef between himself and former partner, Iyanya, Franklin 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 me; he is my brother for life.”
The father-of-one also hinted that he has plans to venture into the movie industry.
“I am actually doing a lot of TV and movie productions right now. They wouldn’t necessarily feature my wife, though; it depends on who fits the role. Meanwhile, I just signed three new artistes and I would be unveiling them soon,” he said.
The “Pana” singer was unveiled as a Pepsi brand ambassador on Friday, March 31, 2017.
