Timaya is angry…and not for the first time, it has to be said.
Fresh from being accused of a hit-and-run, the Egberipapa 1 of Bayelsa is threatening to whoop music-artists manager, Ubi Franklin, in the a** one more time.
“Ubi Franklin you remember the beating I gave you in January last year? Don’t let me beat you again, and please I like your new JOB. As Ifeanyi’s NANI and please don’t mess it up. Davido is a good guy he can make your life. Please focus on your new JOB. Thanks,” Timaya tweeted on his verified account.
There’s some history here. In 2021, Timaya and Franklin engaged in a physical fight.
Franklin has responded to Timaya’s latest threat, saying Timaya didn’t beat him up in 2021:
“I know because y’all see timaya act gangster you feel say him fit beat me 😂😂😂 No Wahala, I go find that CCTV footage from my oga house see how he knelt down to beg. He called me the next day to apologise cos he was high and attacked me unprovoked, self-defense came to play.
“I made sure he got his, I wasn’t satisfied because there were too many Big Boys/men who knew he attacked me unprovoked because he was drunk and I did mine to fill gaps. I am not a violent person, but I will defend myself,” Franklin tweeted.
Franklin also said Timaya was bringing the encounter to the public domain because he had called him out over his recent hit-and-run controversy.
“Timaya is so petty. You are angry because I told you how wrong it was to knock a woman down and leave her to her fate.
“You come to talk trash here today? I am not a person that will see wrong and keep quiet. You were wrong to have knocked that woman down and left her there. Period,” Franklin tweeted.
36-year-old Franklin is currently the Special Adviser to Cross River State Governor Ben Ayade on Tourism.
