Meanwhile, there is yet to be an update from Ubi Franklin who said he will seek redress in court over the accusation by one Orebamz who claimed he is owing her payment for the services she rendered.
Ore, who is a web designer said Ubi contacted her with Iyanya’s Instagram account and asked her to work on a website for him, but after doing the design work, he refused to pay her N500,000 as agreed.
She wrote in part; “Please help me tell @ubifranklin1 to pay the money he owes me. In January, Mr Ubi Franklin reached out to me through @Iyanya ‘s twitter account to tell me there were a few projects he wanted us to work on. Of course I was excited to see @Iyanya ‘s dm and was happy to work together. Still using Iyanya’s account he told me to message Ubi Franklin on WhatsApp and gave me his number. I sent him a message on WhatsApp and he told me to check out a website, he wanted to add some functionalities
I guess there was a misunderstanding of roles as what he wanted to do required a developer, but I explained to him clearly that I’m a designer, I pointed out the faults in the website design and told him it could be better…
“…I thought he was an honorable man. Please all I want is for him to pay me what he owes me. I’m a quiet and peaceful young woman, trying to make ends meet. Ubi Franklin should not try to oppress me, I did not beg him for money, it’s my hard earned money and my right.”
In reaction, Ubi vowed to use her to set a precedence by taking legal steps to ensure the matter is squashed. The Triple MG boss also shared his own side of the story.
“I must set a precedent on this case. I’d love to hear what her lawyer’s defense will be,” he said.
