Unarguably It is no longer news that Nigerian celebrities Ubi Franklin and Timaya rocked the internet with the threat of beating each other again after allegedly doing so in January 2021.
The war of words was trailed by angry reactions from netizens who criticized the duo for fighting immaturely online.
A new report that surfaced online by a controversial gossip blog alleged that Ubi Franklin’s version of the fight was what ensued between him and Timaya.
The gossip blog claimed that Timaya attacked Ubi Franklin on his arrival at the club, where they were hosted by a friend identified as Otunba.
According to the writer, Timaya attacked Ubi Franklin for telling false tales about how he became a drug addict, which the latter denied. However, peace was restored when Timaya reportedly knelt to apologize to Ubi for the attack.
Read the full story: It’s alleged that it happened in 2021 January at Otunba Osanebi Friday’s house .
Otunba was hosting a couple of his friends. Ubi and others were already seated eating, drinking and chatting when Timaya arrived a bit later with a babe. As soon as Timaya entered and saw Ubi whose back was facing Timaya’s direction. Not sure if they already had a pending beef but Timaya walked straight into Ubi’s direction and gave him a hot slap from the back. As Ubi turned around to enquire who and why he’s been slapped, Timaya landed him another slap straight in his face. At this point, Ubi applied his slam dunk skills and carried Timaya who now looks very tuny straight to the ground and stepped on his throat. Dignitaries and high profiled senior men who were present quickly rushed and seperated the 2 gentlemen.
When asked why Timaya dlapped Ubi unprovoked as soon as he saw him? He narrated that sources have been telling him that Ubi has been telling a couple of people that he Timaya is now a drug addict. Ubi explained that he’s not had that discussion with anyone so it’s false accusation though he himself has heard it from a couple of people.
Timaya was asked to apologise since he was wrong to have just slapped Ubi on sighting him without asking if what he heard was true or not. He knelt and apologised Ubi. Peace was restored
Fast forward, the beef revived again recently when Ubi called him out on his recently hit & run ish.
We don’t know how this will turn out again so let’s wait till their next face to face meeting. But the above is what transpired in January 2021 according to eye witness.
