CEO of MMM group, Ubi Franklin, entered into a bit of a snafu with Nollywood actor Alex Ekubo over motivational speakers and their effect in society.
Recall that recently a Nigerian businessman, Obiwanne Okeke was revealed to be a fraud. This came after he’d been profiled in magazines and blogs.
In the wake of this, Franklin put up an Instagram post where he adviced people to not pay too much attention to motivational speakers and not let such people lead them to a place of confusion. He also added that not everyone can be an entrepreneur.
Alex Ekubo on seeing this tried to tackle Ubi Franklin, essentially calling him a hypocrite as he usually also posts a lot of motivational messages and whatnot.
”Ubi na you gon gon be the pilot of the flight, awon inspire to desire, to perspire”. Ekubo said in a now deleted comment.
Franklin hit back in his stories stating that he had never once said that becoming an entrepreneur is easy and that if the actor doesn’t understand his message he should just move on. He also advised Alex to always read before commenting on any topic.
It seems the spat didn’t go beyond that and that whatever needs to be said will be said in the DMs.
Ubi Franklin had in an earlier post celebrated his sister who turned a year older.
He posted a photo of her and captioned it thus: “Happy Birthday to my baby ❤️❤️❤️ Love you forever and ever.
“God bless you and keep you, You are my younger sister but you inspire me a lot. May this day make your dreams come true. Happy birthday sister. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️😂😂😂😂😂😂”
Ubi Franklin also became a father recently and he shared a photo of the little boy on his Social media. He already has a child with actress Lilian Esoro.
