Iyanya Disrespects Media, Threatens Calabar-Based OAP
Nigerian music star, Iyanya who just exited his former record label, TripleMG, headed by his former manager -Ubi Franklin has reportedly threatened HIT FM’s On Air Personality, Last Prophet for mentioning his (Iyanya) separation with Ubi on his show.
The telephone conversation which was leaked online few minutes ago, sees Iyanya using harsh words on the OAP, with no respect for the media.
In Iyanya’s words,
“I don’t depend on my strive (sic), but i depend on God to take me further, this is Iyanya speaking, brother let this be the first and the last time that you will make that kind of statement that you made about me on your show.
I have never had any issue with you, don’t ever in your whole life mention my issue with Ubi on your show. I’ve had different people call me to make that report, the next time you do I’ll show you another side of me.”
Last Prophet who’s based in Calabar is renowned for his amazing presentations and making jokes in pidgin English on the radio station, he expressed how he felt when Iyanya called him on telephone to intimidate him.
Reacting to the threat, Last Prophet said:
“I was shocked at Iyanya’s phone call. I’m a comedian and OAP, my show is a comedy show in pidgin English. All I did was make jokes from the situation, which is what anyone else would have done.
I only feel bad because I’m sure he would not do that to any OAP in Lagos; he did it to me because he feels I’m in Calabar and he can just threaten me like that.”
The Kukere master who just signed new management deal with Temple Management company is getting ready to release his new album.
WORDS FOR IYANYA: The media contributed immensely to your success as an artiste, you are still having your celebrity status because the media is still talking about you, if the media stop talking about you, how far can you go talking/shouting about yourself? It is important you treat all media persons with maximum respect.
