Timaya Blows Hard At Ubi Franklin
Timaya has called Ubi Franklin out for offering his two cents on his (Timaya’s) press statement.
Timaya, on March 22nd, had issued a public statement regarding the alleged ‘hit and run’ he was accused of.
In the singer’s press release, he addressed the allegations made against him, narrating his account of what had occurred and his attempts to reach out to the victim. And ended the statement with an apology to the victim of the accident and her family, as well as his fans.
However, Ubi Franklin quoting Timaya’s tweet had offered his two cents, advising the singer that he should have first apologized and reached out to the victim’s family rather than speaking about it on Instagram live.
Dear Timaya, as a senior man in the Nigerian Enterainment Industry, the first thing you would have done when you were accused was to apologize as you have just done and then call the victim’s family.
Your live video the other day showed you cared less about the situation.
Thank U https://t.co/1iHuhpmtcC

Not one to shy away from a challenge, Ubi Franklin accused the Ukwu singer of forgetting what had truly occurred during the said incident.
“See Timaya wen senior men help comot for hand dey talk say em beat me. You don forget wetin happen that day? Or you don high?” he shared on his Instagram page.
“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 apologize cos he was high and attacked me unprovoked, self defense came to play,” he continued.
While it is unclear the cause of the rift between Ubi Franklin and Timaya and when said beating occurred, it is clear that the feud has been ongoing.
And in a follow-up post, Franklin accused the dancehall singer of still being angry that he chastised him over his handling of the accident.
“Timaya is so petty. You are angry cos I told how wrong it was to knock a woman down and leave her to her fate,” he wrote.
“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.”
