Iyanya & Ubi Narrate How ‘Kukere’ Was Made


Iyanya and his former label boss, Ubi Franklin, CEO Triple MG, put aside their differences as they came together to talk about the rainy days in their growth to success.

On a Live Instagram session, Ubi narrated how he faked Don Jazzy’s voice on Iyanya’s single Flavour, just to draw the publics’ attention.

“After Iyanya recorded Flavour, then you know how Don Jazzy was to us then, like Ha! Jazzy! So I hit up Dtunes, and said: “since we no go fit get Don Jazzy, I go use my voice o.” So we try am, then hunger dey so e be like say boyz dey for forsaken,” Ubi revealed.

Most importantly, Ubi and Iyanya told the story of Kukere.

Kukere was that hit single that exposed Iyanya to fame. The song was an anthem at some point in Nigeria. Both young and old danced to the banger.

Iyanya revealed he never liked the song before its release. An appraisal from some ladies almost made Iyanya loose the hit of his life.

Ubi further explained how Iyanya took criticisms very serious.
