In 2014, it was time for celebrity drama as Emma Nyra ended her recording contract with Made Men Music Group. Emma Nyra cited abuse with physical and verbal force from her then manager Ubi Franklin as the reason why she left the label imprint. The allegations were however denied by Ubi Franklin.

While it is no longer news that Triple MG boss, Ubi Franklin and his record label first lady, Emma Nyra had called it quits, it was the manner in which the duo took each other to the cleaners and put up a bit of a show on social media that left them scathing from their fans reactions worldwide.

This is because at a point in their creamier than cream relationship, the duo were virtually inseparable, which sent tongues wagging that they must have been more than mere friends. While the hint of a relationship was being dropped around, neither Ubi nor Emma saw anything wrong with it until things went soar.
Ubi had refused to renew Emma’s contract and she shrugged and walked away and reportedly relocated to her Houston, Texas base, while Ubi got to London either for business or pleasure.
Emma Nyra said in one interview when the feud was hot that Ubi had terrorised her for years. He abused her and other members of the label with physical and verbal force.And that was why she left.
Even as Emma Nyra has moved on from this painful experience of her professional life, We wish her a happy birthday and many more mouth-watering deals to come in her career. Happy Birthday Emma Nyra!
