Former music executive cum blogger, Ubi franklin has reacted to the wide-spreading rumor of him being employed by Davido to babysit his son, Ifeanyi.
Ubi has been in a conflict with singer, Timaya and the two admitted to throwing punches back in January, a video that didn’t go viral or even seen on the internet.
Timaya who was trying to get back at him called him sorts of names including being employed by afro-pop star, Davido as a nanny for his son. Ubi Franklin in an interview with Sunday Scoop had shed light on some of the headlines that have his name on them in the past few weeks.
Ubi said “The person I have a problem with is Bovi. I Go Save was trying to defend his friend. He is only a victim of circumstance.
“I called out Bovi because he mentioned my name (in his joke). Comedians should not make jokes about things they also do secretly just because they have not been caught. Comedians are at liberty to crack any joke they want but some people are very sensitive to certain things.
“Comedians should be creative to make funny jokes instead of looking for an opportunity to throw jibes at people they have a personal vendetta with.”
About his relationship with veteran singer, Timaya, Ubi Franklin said “I never had an issue with Timaya until we went to a friend’s house and had some discussions. I was talking to somebody else when he hit me at the back of my head, and I retaliated. I don’t know what came over him. He later apologised and said he was ‘high’. We went our separate ways and he still called me the next day to apologise. However, I don’t have any problem with I Go Save or Timaya. It is Bovi I have a problem with.
He went to speak about the viral claim about being employed by Davido to become Ifeanyi’s babysitter, he said, “It is not a bad thing to take care of Ifeanyi. This is where I call empathy to play. I have children too and I cannot see her (Chioma) struggling with the boy and I would not help. Besides being her manager, she is like a sister to me. That doesn’t make me her son’s nanny. The people criticising me just want to throw jibes at me.”
