“I truly wish I could change every bad situation for your sake and the peace of the family” – Ubi Franklin writes His Son



TripleMG boss, Ubi Franklin has penned an emotional letter to his and Lilian Esoro‘s son, Jayden.

He also praised his wife Lilian, who he described as a ‘Super Mum’.

“You are strong, doing an excellent job, and I continue to admire you deeply,” Franklin said about Lilian in the post.

Read the letter below:

Letter To My Son @jaydenubifranklin
Son, witnessing your birth was not just an experience; it was a miracle (the beauty of a child being born is nothing but pure joy).
You came and melted my heart, taught me to love, taught me to forgive and see things differently. My past experiences made me one who was easily provoked but God always uses something, or someone to change people, to break them, and for me; my SON and some self discipline did.
You have also taught me to admit my mistakes and apologize for them, even when I think I’m not wrong but may have upset someone, apologize! It takes NOTHING from you but gives you EVERYTHING!!! Son, your magical smile is what I love – Dad Loves you dearly – and will do all to make you happy for my days are better because of you. I have a whole new perspective to life and have experienced another side of life all because of you. (Thank God).
Life doesn’t always serve us happy cards but I truly wish I could change every bad situation for your sake and the peace of the family.
This is a letter to you my Son.
This December will be our first Christmas together and your very first Christmas here on Earth…. (Praise God).
Tomorrow is a New Year too.You’re the hero of this story and a new life with you is all because of your Mum (super Mum)….9months carrying and protecting you has led our paths to meet. Growing so fast and big now (you even make efforts to grab my phone and take selfies lol) WOW!!! ??????❤
To your Mum; “You are strong, doing an excellent job, and I continue to admire you deeply.”
Oh Jayden, I am so excited to see the plan that God has for your life. I already feel the magic that you will be a great son. You woke up a love in me that I didn’t realize existed. I am Proud to be your father….I have loved you since I found out about you, I loved you more when I met you on your birthday, i have loved you more each day during this past 5 months, and i will love you more for the next four months, four years, four decades, and every day after that. I will always, always love you. My heart just aches and trembles with all my love for you.
Forever and always… Your Daddy.❤️??
Welcome to 2017????✌?❤??

    Oh please. Is this for your son? Good. Then wait for him to get old enough to read and understand privately.

      @EC, what’s your problem? The man is just professing his undying love for his son. Why do you have a problem with that. He wants the world to know how much he cherishes and adores his son. If you truly love someone, you’d shout it from the rooftops right? I believe he also wants his wife to read this. Ubi truly loves Lilian and would do anything to have her back. But Ubi, if you beg and she refuses to accept, move on with your life. Whatever qualities you think Lilian possess, a lot of beautiful ladies out there, possess even more. Don’t pine away becoz of her.

      @Darius. Please THINK. Would you prefer you FATHER UNCLE OR BROTHERS doing this. Especially when you have no say as a child.

      No matter what this is now public and cannot be retracted.

      Please be mature about it for your child’s sake

    • EE

      December 31, 2016 at 7:11 pm

      @Darius. Ubi is that you? ? Oya shout from the roof top. Oga just go and tell your son. Better yet take care of him like a father should

      Thank you. Please “You be,” keep a journal that is private and readable for your son. We dont want to know. If you want to communicate with Lilian, grow balls, send her an email or give her a call. Better still, do a face to face if she wants to see ya face. Protect the child from RIDICULE. You people are so selfish. This poor boy will be insulted by his peers because his parents punani stories are in the papers. When he goes for a job interview, all people will be thinking about is whether his mother was runz and whether his father was a beater. When they google his name to check out his professional credentials, all they will see is shit from Ubi daddy. JUst get off social media and be unselfish for once.

      This guy should just stop, it’s funny how he’s always the one writing things and making people know what’s happening in their home. Minus removing his last name and his pics which she just did recently, Lilian hasn’t said a word!!!
      Whatever their problem is we don’t need to know. Ubi just quietly fix your family


      January 15, 2017 at 8:59 pm

      MEN NO LONGER KNOW HOW TO MEN*** Quite a lot of them have refused to TRULY GROW UP and become RESPONSIBLE***
      A lot of them don’t know how to be DECENT FATHERS’/ HUSBANDS’…yet they want to receive the same REVERNCE as the men of old who did EVRYTHING for their families!

    Damn it, this guy just robs me off the wrong way.. Must u live the issues of your marriage on social media,must every thought be expressed expressly on Instagram/twitter.
    Dude calm [email protected] the end of the day,many don’t care. Be a man,discretion is key,common sense is needed. Stay away from plastering,cementing,posting,writing,all your life/marriage struggles on SM.. Grow up.
    Go for counseling if need be,go on your knees,work it out and sort things out without the interference of the whole world… And if the marriage is over,then move on and keep quiet..
    The vuvuzela for 2017 should be used to promote your artist and label and your restaurant,keep you family off SM…

    Damn it! Baby Ubi is here again. I just don’t know how Lilian coped with this big baby for nearly a year.
    Oga pls just stop addressing life issues on social media, pls stop .. You keep drawing unnecessary attention to yourself and those people you think are sympathising with you are actually siping soda while chewing popcorn and enjoying your gist. Just look at how Lilian has handled the whole thing (despite everyone pointing fingers at her) quietly and maturely.
    It’s 2017 already, dear Ubi pls grow up. Happy new year everyone.

    December 31, 2016 at 11:31 am

    Have you noticed that Ubi has worked very hard to make Lillian look bad? I commend Lillian for her maturity in this matter. Ubi is a slimy, manipulative, entitled brat. I’d dump him too. Though Lily, I can’t say I feel sorry for you. You saw what he did to Emma Nyra and instead of running as far away as you can, you and your cronies (Freda and co) laughed at her and you thought you had “won.” Looks like your “trophy” wasn’t worth it after all.

    December 31, 2016 at 11:33 am

    How pathetic can this one be?? enough of your shenanigans!! woman beater. Abusive beast. You are a sick man. U think u can hit Lili and expect her to forgive u like nothing happened?? not all women are foolish like ur mother who tolerated your Father’s abuse. u are sick. I hope she files for divorce soon

  12. RichyGame

    December 31, 2016 at 11:38 am

    I must admit, I didn’t give Ubi a fighting chance in the like/dislike domain perhaps due to the first impression I got of him which was through comments section of a blog when MMMG was starting out. I based my not digging him on that and other negative read ups… my bad and may God forgive me.

    However, I feel his pain and identify with him. He needn’t post all his thoughts on SM but it is a way of calling out to people to please help his situation and get his love back to his side and let the fam be one again… he is writhing in emotional turmoil

    I wish I could help… I wish I had your number to call you… I can’t imagine being in your shoes right now… Imagine, estranged with my wife and my kids away from me… Thank God for my good marriage and I pray a turn around for you bro irrespective of how impossible it seems.

      I gave you 5 likes.

      Only in this part of the world people get disgusted when others share their feelings.
      Pls guys get hurt too. Allow him to express himself. Let him feel and say he’s sorry.

      I pray for reconciliation and restoration for his family. Pls Lily don’t throw this away. Its the easiest thing to do. I pray for you both, that you both have the power to forgive yourselves. That God mends and heals both your hearts without scars. And grants you wisdom and patience to go through this storm in spiritual strength. We bind that spirit of division, declaring that what God has joined together nothing should separate in Jesus name! May God’s peace fill your home. And when the storm has settled you both will be thankful that you didn’t give up on your selves.

    It seems like dating or marrying a celebrity is now a joke!! it seems like most (not all) celebrities are so stupidly unserious and childish especially in issues like this. like there have been many cases to prove my point.
    I think 2017, we ladies should say No to dating/marrying celebrities and men who act like these unserious celebrities.

  17. Chief

    December 31, 2016 at 12:12 pm

    Haba!! Who is this boy? My God!! Mr man,Never let a woman know you are hurt,real men must understand that once a woman has dumped you,you can’t keep begging to go back.Men must learn to let woman go who do not want to be in their lives.Men must dictate the pace in their marriage.You have to learn when to take a lost.

    Stop being emotional,stop being a wimp,a mangina and a simp.this is not manly.This is not what real men do.You move on to the next one.I know any men is vulnerable to get hurt by women but it’s ok as long as you don’t show her.That’s not strength.Don’t make a woman take you back based on pity.I don’t know why men rather be in their feelings than keep it moving.Men are just too emotional and chatty nowadays.Gossiping and airing out private matter over social media,arguing with females and stooping to their emotional and irrational level.Ridiculous!!

    There’s a reason why real men don’t really express feelings often.Someone has to be the logical and pragmatic thinking one most of the time,Vent your emotions to a close relative not on social media.Don’t be a cry baby.It’s not a good look for a real man.

    By now,you must have learnt your mistakes and how women operate,the more you do for women,the more you don’t get”The less is more”.Women are like roller coasters,focus on your son and your business.I don’t want to sound like a hypocrite,i still have one at home but the difference is that i have gotten over any desire to please her,to depend on her for her validation.I do not deal with her out of weakness or fear of loosing her rather i deal with her from position of strength.Her opinions does not matter in my house.I dictate what happens in my house.

    Men should stop simping.Men please don’t ever try to buy a woman’s heart cause you can’t,she gives it away freely to who she chooses.Men should stop being Beta males,these women don’t like feminine and weak men.Stop being Mr nice man to women.Take care of your woman but don’t be a wussy man.Shame to any woman who is misleading and using men they know they are not interested in,running the game on them and fulfilling their wedding fantasy.

      I actually feel sorry for him.
      “He without sin, let him cast the first stone”
      I don’t know what went wrong btw him and Lilian but this guy needs help. He needs counciling, who are his friends? Who is his pastor ? Think he attends House on d Rock, that shld be Pastor Paul Adefarasin.
      I hope this guy doesn’t hurt himself one day. Seems he also has low self esteem.
      If he abused Lilian that is too bad. He needs to be away from anything called marriage and get some help first. Anger management, therapy etc.
      Can we just stop bashing him, do u know that can push him more over d edge.
      He needs to give Lilian space and heal first, all dese things will push her even further. Next thing she won’t even allow you visit ur son. All dis ur behaviour is getting worrisome.

      Dear Chief, I ask this out of concern, who hurt you this deeply?

      From your write up, I can’t even muster courage to be offended at this. You really sound hurt.

      Marriage is one institution we can be vulnerable with our spouse and not be afraid of loosing our sense of worth. In fact that’s one of the key benefits of a good marriage.

      If you aren’t getting that from your marriage. You and your wife need to work on it.

    What exactly did he do to lilian does anyone know? Did he hit her bcos they say he has violent tendencies….it is obvious lilian esoro does not love him. Hes probably not her type. Women if u have ears listen. S t op being hard headed and romanticising the idea of marriage and the wedding instead of the actual marriage. Women spend hours planning a big society wedding and when all the chandeliers, ballons fireworks cameras are put away they realise they married someone elses husband or a man they never loved one iota.

    I know a lady who was so desperate to get married that she dated this guy for so long and begged him to marry her the guy would even openly admire her friends and she wouldnt mind him indulging in escapades with them just to keep him.happy…fast forawrd as soon as she married the nincompoop she detested this man with a perfect dislike. He would kiss her and she woukd spit and cry. And suffice it to say they went their separate ways in a matter of months. She saw the glaring difference between the idea of marriage and the actual marriage, process….Nigerians are losing their mind with this social media nonsense. Why do we abuse everything we come in contact with why? Peoples daily existence are lived out for the world to see and dissect. Sheer stupidity and neediness..from deep seated issues

    @EE, you edumacated types baffle me Whalahi! It’s all about context. Was Rudyard Kipling going through a nasty public divorce, in addition being surrounded by lots of negative rumors about alleged abusive tendencies? Of course this comes of as attention seeking, validation seeking and disingenuous. If this exact letter- word for word, was written by say RMD or some stable individual without drama, we’d all be applauding. If Ubi’s son reads this letter when he grows up, he might be offended that his dad did not respect him enough and tried using him as a pawn in his unconscious/ subconscious (giving Ubi the benefit of doubt here) manipulative drama.

    Ppl need to stop doing things for other ppl. Lilian was warned and she knew in her heart this man was not for her, why go ahead with the wedding? What point was she trying to prove? Ubi is a troubled soul, and the last thing he needs is a wife. He needs counseling, as he obviously has issues he has to deal with.

  37. C

    January 1, 2017 at 11:11 am

    Dang so he really was hitting Emma Nyra then he couldn’t have just started with wife. Menh I hate him a lot now and I don’t even know him but I hate him I didn’t even think that was possible for me. Why are guys so emotional nowadays like more violent outbursts.

  38. nnenne

    January 1, 2017 at 12:31 pm

    Ubi and Lillian are very much together. Those who want them apart have refused to acknowledge otherwise.
    This all started from the release of their pre- wedding photo shoot.
    I believe this is the reason Lillian try to distance her married image from her career and am with her 100%.
    This new year , may we all have it in our hearts to love our neighbors and wish them well in all that they do!

    Ubi if you really love lilian wait for her, you are not the only man passing though this so many feel your pain. No one is above mistake, you made an error let it go and forgive yourself. She has a kid with you so believe me she thinks about as well and is talking to people also looking for how to take a decision on your marriage. If you have no intention of remarrying brother groove as many babes as you can. But in the end you and only you will know when to let it go and move on. Whatever the outcome you will be fine. One love
