Rave of the moment, Iyanya is allegedly wanted by the
Nigerian Police, in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, in connection
with the case of fraud brought against him by popular show
organiser, Opa Williams.
Iyanya has however denied he is wanted by the police;
muttering on phone “Don’t mind them, I am in Abuja,”
Showtime reports.
According to reports, Iyanya’s manager, Ubi-Franklin Ekpong
is currently under arrest at Mile 3 Police Division,in the
Garden city.
Opa Williams, the producer of Nigeria’s foremost comedy
show, ‘Nite of a Thousand Laughs’ reported Iyanya to the
police for allegedly collecting N1.7 million from him being
payment for the singer’s performance at ‘Nite of a Thousand
Laughs’ shows which held in Benin and Port Harcourt few days
ago, but the Afro hip hop act never showed up at any of the
shows.
Sources say Williams was angered by the fact that Iyanya
was in Port Harcourt ahead of the show on Monday, but he
was just nowhere to be found minutes later with his cell
phones out of reach.
“He has caused me a lot of embarrassment, as people who
paid to come and watch him went home disappointed. For 17
years, we have been organizing Nite of A Thousand Laughs
and we have built a large followership, I will not allow
anybody to destroy the credibility we have as people who
deliver on their promises. That’s why we are going to pursue
this case (legally) to a logical conclusion and ensure this is
the last time Iyanya would do this to anybody.” Williams
stated.
“When Iyanya failed to show up at Benin edition, which held
on December 26, he called to apologise, promising however to
make it up with the Port-Harcourt and Bonny shows. But
again, he did not keep to his word,” Williams added.
Sources say Iyanya’s non-appearance was deliberate, as he
performed earlier at another show which held the same day in
Port-Harcourt and featured Timaya.
“We are aware of the issue between Opa Williams and hip hop
act, Iyanya. The parties are at the moment at Mile 3 Police
Division in Port Harcourt. Our client has informed us he is
seeking redress in court. However, there are moves to resolve
the matter amicably. It is sad that Iyanya would behave in
such an unprofessional manner, but then, the police are
handling the matter well,” Williams’ media Company, Media
