Music executive, Ubi Franklin has threatened to take legal action against one Orebamz who accused him of a N500k debt.
Empire earlier reported that Orebamz, who is a web designer said Ubi contacted her with Iyanya’s Instagram account and asked her to work on a website for him.
She said when she was done with the work and it was time for him to pay their agreed price of N500,000, he began to give her excuses.
She immediately took to Twitter to let out a cry for help, calling on the music executive to pay for her services rendered.
In response to the allegations, Ubi shared his own side of the story and also threatened to use her to set a precedence by taking legal steps to ensure the matter is squashed.
His statement reads;
THE INSTANT CASE
Leadership exposed me to problems, they put you in the ring and ask you to defend yourself. I have been briefed about this post trending on Twitter and I’d like to quickly address it, though I think it might get to more or less of those who have so far seen the post.
I have since 2021 built a proptech platform and it’s been live since then. I was catching up with a senior friend on the platform in January 2023 and what I’d like to do with it, while we were talking he mentioned a certain lady on Twitter who her tweets always popup on his timeline and will like to give her a job, I asked for her name and I had to dm her through Iyanya’s Twitter because my phone was down and Iyanya was there and phone was on. (She didn’t build the platform, the platform has been live two years before I knew her).
We got talking and then Election pressure, I told her we will talk and meet after elections and she agreed. After elections I had to travel to cool off this head before it will blow off and today I was going over schedules and I saw her messages and missed calls and I replied her, though opening the messages I saw threats of her going to call me out on social media and I was like hold on.
I called my friend who had asked me to give her a try so he could use her after I have vetted her and sure she can deliver. I forwarded messages to him, from the said lady who has been making threats and I forwarded her account number to him to pay her, pending when I get back to Review the work she has done and boom I have been called out on Twitter. And my last message to her was my PA will call her tomorrow (which is today) and finalize other details and her reply was had already called me out on twitter.
If you ask the lady, the first we spoke on zoom, I told her the main job is coming and not this one cos this is already done.
I have been tech platforms since 2015 and I have never had an issue with anyone who has worked on any with me.
Honestly, I’m sure the amount (350K) in question is not worth the damage. But she wants to trend and she got it, I have my Tech team that I have been using since 2015 and I have never had cause to change them, they built all my platforms and we have never had financial issues.
But in the instant case, someone wanted to push business her way and I was the vetting officer, But we learn every day. But hey, I have a name and someone will prey on it when they like and that’s not ok all levels.
People are so inclined to believe negative things about you, but they see positive things and throw their eyes away. I will Legally Address this in the coming weeks, and this will set a precedent. Thank you.
