Barely few hours after the interview of Emma Nyra swearing she never dated her former boss Ubi Franklin, the man himself has given an interview to The Cable and he gave inside details on what really went down between the two.

Ubi almost regret dating his former artiste and he says candidly that single men or women should never catch feelings at their place of work.

Excerpts from his interview below

 Ubi Franklin says single men should never be intimate with any girl they are working with;

‘Don’t ever have any intimate relationship with a girl you are working with.’ I was dating Emma Nyra and the relationship didn’t go as I thought it should have gone. When you’re dating somebody and you are the boss, there are things you can’t tell your wife or your girlfriend. But if you say it to an employee you are dating, they tend to misbehave. Like, if you tell the others to do something, they will obey without thinking about it. It’s not only me but it has happened to a lot of people, but that is the business lesson I’ve learnt in my life.

I will tell every guy and girl out there, don’t do anything that personal where you are working. Except one of you resigns. It always comes to no good. That relationship made me cut off a lot of people and it also made me feel like everybody wanted the same ‘cake’ I was having. I spent a lot of time trying to beef people when I am not supposed to. It really dealt me a big blow. I decided in the end that it doesn’t make any sense and we both understood that and moved on.

He also laments the money he had spent on building the career of the Texas born singer

Well, we’ve been trying to move on and everything has to heal with time and I am just praying to God that everything goes well because I have really tried. I don’t think that I have spent as much money on Iyanya as I’ve spent on Emma Nyra. Emma has like nine videos at about N3.5m. She has a lot of materials out there. For Emma, I just believe that when God says it’s her time, it’s her time. I’ve tried to fix the whole American thing for a while but I still pray God gives her the hit I think she deserves because I’ve spent a lot of money on her.

Ubi-and-Lilian

He also shed light on his current relationship with the 26 year old and how he met his soon to be wife, Lilian Esoro

I met Lilian, my fiancee, at a friend’s party a few months ago, towards the end of last year. I’d been seeing her around before then but I’m a one-woman-one-man kind of guy. I don’t know how some people feel about that. If I am dating one person, I am all about that person. I’ve seen her a couple of times at events because I know she used to work for AY. I used to wonder who she was but I just passed by. But God just finally said we should get talking. The first day I met her, I told her I was going to marry her because her environment was so good for me. I’ve dated different girls in my lifetime but I believe when you meet a woman that you are going to marry you would know. You might date someone for 10 years and still not get married but the day you meet the person that you are going to marry, you will know.
