Music Label Boss Ubi Franklin Affirms That Paul Okoye Bought Iyanya's Share When He Left

Ubi Franklin, CEO of Made Men Music Group (MMMG), says he sold “part” of his record label to Paul Okoye, CEO of Upfront and Personal, a management and consultancy outfit.




Franklin’s disclosure came after his artiste, Tekno Miles, had revealed on Instagram that Okoye, popularly called Paul O, “owns 50% of MMMG”.

Subsequently, TheCable Lifestyle published a report examining the circumstances surrounding the transfer of shares and the part played by Iyanya Mbuk, former co-owner of MMG.

According to Franklin, he bought Iyanya’s shares when the ‘Your Waist’ singer left the record label in August 2016.

The husband of Nollywood actress Lilian Esoro told TheCable Lifestyle that he later sold the shares to Paul O.

He said: “When Iyanya was leaving, I bought over his shares so I owned 100% of the company so I sold those shares to Paul Okoye of Upfront and Personal.”

“Paul Okoye now owns part of MMMG,” Franklin added.

Although they co-founded MMMG, Iyanya chose to leave so as to develop his music by working closely with Don Jazzy, CEO of Mavin Records.

Iyanya had told TheCable Lifestyle that he needed to work with someone “who understands the music industry and can help me fulfil that dream. Making sure that I get my music right is the most important thing”.

“We needed somebody who can help bring the real Iyanya to life, the singing Iyanya but at the same time commercialise the music,” he had said.

Franklin, a popular artiste manager, also noted that a press conference would soon be held to explain the recent developments in the company.

  4. I still don't understand this move from iyanya unless there's something there are not telling us. He could still have a share in the company even though he moved to another label.
    Seem like he didn't want anything to do with Ubi.

    1. Nuvi Ubi talks too much for a man. Always writing long epistles and seeking validation on social media. Mr pity party, playing mind games on IG. Today he has his wedding ring on, tomorrow he has it off. Ubi is just an attention seeking disgruntled baby in a man's body.

  21. Ubi watch ur character well ooooooo. It's well

  22. People shld give Ubi a break abeg, the guy is just 30yrs old.
    How many 30yr olds can attest to doing this well in their chosen field, every one starts from smwe'r. Sometimes some investments will yield profits, smtimes investment will fail.
    2016 wasn't the best yr for the guy.
    His marriage to Lilian, I cant judge until Lilian herself comes out to say she suffered DV.

  23. Bless u for this! Everyone blames ds guy like he's supposed to be perfect cos he's in d limelight. We all make mistakes pls!! Let hope he has learned some things n ready to right his wrongs. Lilian never loved Ubi. She married him out of pity n felt it wld get better. Ubi on his part needs to reflect on his life so as to hv a much more better 2017.

  25. Why do I feel like one of them is headed for the rocks? Either iyanya or Ubi? Because when dbanj and don j split one person was on his way to nothing (no one should come and tell me dbanj isn't doing badly because he was better off with don. Thank You!). So Iyanya moved from owning his own record label to going under someone? Okay. And Ubi now partners with one of the Ps to run MMMG? Okay. Doesn't look good to me. One bit.
    Or was Iyanya loosing his steam? Maybe he was and needed someone who repackage him. Don is good at that. I think this is one of those times when you can see that a woman changes everything in man's life. Since Lilian came everything just I dunno....
