In a recent interview with Punch, Emma said she never dated Ubi. Read excerpts from the interview below.
What are some of the lessons you have learnt since you parted ways with your former label?
I learnt to focus and not really trust what I hear. I have learnt to take everything I am being told by sight and keep my faith in God because He is the only one who actually has my back. Even if I hear something, I don’t react just like that and I also stay away from drama. If I sense that a situation might likely lead to a confrontation, I simply avoid it.
It is believed that when an artiste is in a relationship with his or her label boss or label mate it spells doom for his or her career. Do you agree?
I actually wasn’t in a relationship with Ubi. He made all that story up. Personally, I don’t want to speak about it.
What is your relationship with your former label boss, Ubi Franklin, like? Are you both cordial?
No, I wouldn’t like to speak about that.
What label are you currently signed on with?
I have my own label now, Nyra Nation and Nyra Empire.
Is this a deliberate decision?
I want to handle my own projects, so I can see and track my own revenue. I can make my own money and also bring up other artistes when the time comes.
