Iyanya has picked up a fight with HIT FM’s on air personnel in Calabar who calls himself, Last Prophet. The squabble between the two was as a result of the comments the OAP made on his “Otwetwe” show when he was discussing the split between Triple MG CEO, Ubi Franklin and Kukere singer, Iyanya.
The Last Prophet who claims to be not just an OAP but a comedian said; “he wondered if Iyanya was planning to return back to Calabar where he started from“, and that pissed the hell out of Iyanya.
Shortly after, a call was placed to the Calabar OAP and to his greatest surprise it was Iyanya himself. The celebrity made it really clear that he did not go down well with the comments made as he ended up threatening the OAP;
“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“.
TheNet who exclusively leaked details to the phone conversation reached out to Last Prophet to hear his own side of the story and here was his reply;
“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 divide between Iyanya and his former boss, Ubi franklin has been a touchy issue but so far so good, both parties came out to clear the air waves. However, Iyanya’s departure from Triple MG is official as the singer has signed a new management deal with Temple Management Company (TMC).
