TripleMG (Made Men Music Group) was founded by Ubi Franklin and is co-owned by Inyanya. However, reports say the business partners have been having rifts for some time now and accusing fingers point to Ubi’s wife, Lilian Esoro, as a trigger factor to the fight. Via a lengthy Instagram post, Inyanya’s manager clarified the issue.

Ubi wrote:

“Recently there’s been a lot said in the media about Iyanya leaving Made Men Music, I’d like to clarify things.

“Iyanya had approached me about a year ago and notified me of his intentions to start-up a label. He wanted my blessings to do so and I told him it was a welcome development. I assured him of my support to help structure his planned label with the existing company (Made Men Music Group) whenever he was ready and the process was initiated.

“Two weeks ago he shared with me, news that the company had been duly registered and was ready to commence operations. I was also privy to the information that he had identified a few artistes with potential he wants to nurture. This done, I knew the label was ready to kick off.

“I understand his post piqued the curiosity of the public and blogs made what they could of the news.
Yes, Iyanya is starting a new label which will be a company out of Made Men Music with a different structure and a different focus, aiming at growing our industry.

“I would like to state here that like every other label we all have our internal issues from time to time.
We have shared happy and sad moments and it’s only fair to grow each other in every way possible. Not every move means a breakup.

As you know we still stand this way.
