Report has it that Iyanya allegedly threatened to beat up an on air personality of HIT FM, Calabar, Last Prophet.
According to a telephone recording obtained by The NET, the singer can be heard threatening the OAP.
According to report, the OAP had his radio show ‘Otwetwe’ on August 2, 2016 where he talked about the singer parting ways with his former manager and partner, Ubi Franklin.
Last Prophet jokingly said, “he wondered if Iyanya was planning to return back to Calabar where he started from”
However, not long at the show, Iyanya called the OAP and he said, “I don’t depend on my strive (sic), but i depend on God to take me further, this is Iyanya speaking, brother let this be the first and the last time that you will make that kind of statement that you made about me on your show. I have never had any issue with you, don’t ever in your whole life mention my issue with Ubi on your show. I’ve had different people call me to make that report, the next time you do I’ll show you another side of me.”
The OAP told NET that, “I was shocked at Iyanya’s phone call. I’m a comedian and OAP, my show is a comedy show in pidgin English. All I did was make jokes from the situation, which is what anyone else would have done. I only feel bad because I’m sure he would not do that to any OAP in Lagos; he did it to me because he feels I’m in Calabar and he can just threaten me like that.”
