According to earlier reports Timaya slammed Ubi Franklin after the latter threatened to expose the secrets of a popular Nigerian comedian, I Go Save.
Timaya took to Twitter to warn Ubi Franklin not to allow him to repeat what he did to him sometime before. In addition, the singer threatened to beat Ubi if the latter refused to concentrate on his nanny business.
He wrote: Ubi Franklin, u remember the beating I gave you in January last year? Don’t let me beat you again and pls I like your new job as Ifeanyi’s many and pls don’t mess it up. Davido is a good guy he can make yr life. pls focus on your new job. Thanks.
Ubi, who responded to the threat, claimed that Timaya was bluffing about beating him.
He wrote: “You wey them save for my hand. Make I mention names of people wey save you? Everybody know your way so, not today, my focus na on another person no be you. Everyone knows you called me to beg o”.
“See Timaya wey senior men help comot for my hand Dey talk. Say him best me You don forget wetin happen that day? Or you don high?”
“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. 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’s woman down and left her there. Period”
“I know because y’all see Timaya act gangster you feel say him fit beat me. No wahala, I go find 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”.
“I made sure he git his, I wasn’t satisfied cos they were to many But Boys/men who knew he attacked me unprovoked cos he was drunk and I did mine to fill gaps. I am not a violent person, but I will defend myself”.
Nigerians who are ashamed with their war of words on social media took to Instagram to condemn them for acting immaturely in a public space.
