Barely a fortnight after Inyanya left Ubi Franklin’s label to manage himself, he is caught up in a serious rift with Hit FM OAP and comedian, Last Prophet.
Not knowing that the call was captured in a recording, the singer threatened the On-air personality of Hit FM Calabar for mentioning his name on his show.
Last Prophet had his radio show Otwetwe, on August 2, 2016, where he talked about Iyanya parting ways with his former partner and manager Ubi Franklin.
During the show, the HIT FM OAP stated that he wondered if Iyanya was planning to return back to Calabar where he started from.

Shortly after the show ended, Last Prophet received a threatening call from Inyanya. Unfortunately for the Kukere singer, the recorded call was leaked to journalists.
“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.
“I was shocked at Iyanya’s phone call,” the Hit FM OAP said when contacted by Newsmen. “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.”
Recall that Inyanya grew up and lived in Calabar most part of his life before his rise to stardom. He used to manage a Karaoke Lounge at Mayfair, MCC road Calabar. This single act from him may just be the confirmation that Inyanya Lacks the Skills to Run a Record Label.
