From the moment Iyanya hinted about floating his own record label on July 11, 2016, it was clear that he had finalised plans to part ways with Ubi Franklin‘s MMMG.
Though both parties tried to play it as cool as possible, the media didn’t buy it and just a few minutes ago, Iyanya confirmed that he’s indeed moving on to a new phase of his career.
He announced that his new album will be released under a new label and he’s also just signed up with a new management company.
Read his explanation below.
‘Dear fans, I am pleased to announce that I have now signed on with Temple Management Company. About a year ago, Ubi and I discussed options to diversify our business interests and creative visions and we both agreed that we would explore all avenues open to us. So much has happened since and I have now completed work on my new album which will be released under a new record label. With both @thetemplecompany and the new album, I am now embarking in a direction which will not only bring you the same quality, verve and energy that you have become accustomed to, it will take things to the next level. Ubi remains my brother and we both look forward to this new phase of our careers. God bless you all.
Ubi Franklin responded to this Iyanya post with a congratulatory message, ‘Congratulations my Brother forever’.
