According to glamsquad, Ubi revealed this during a podcast with Tea with Taypod, stating that in 2017, he had nearly $5 million and purchased the best care but was depressed.
According to Ubi, when his marriage with Nollywood actress Lilian Esoro ended, he assumed it was due to a lack of funds to fund things.
However, even after making so much money following the demise of his marriage, he felt sad because he didn’t have a home, family, or someone to share his success story with, such as Nigerian singer, Iyanya.
Ubi Franklin observed that for people like him, wealth is not about flaunting but is visible in the lives of their spouses and children.
“In 2017, I had nearly $5 million but was depressed,” he explained. I had the best vehicles. My marriage felt doomed because I couldn’t afford to pay for things. I was sitting on that kind of money doing business and everything a year after my marriage crashed and I was almost on $5 million for investment I did from crypto back in the day, but I didn’t have a home or someone like Iyanya to make that kind of financial expression on him.
“For some of us, money isn’t about showing off; it’s about showing off things around us, like your wife or children.”
“There was no fulfillment for me because what I had planned was not what was going on with me at the time. I had a detailed plan of what I wanted. I was making mistakes during my depression. I stayed in hotels but he didn’t make me happy; I traveled to different countries and accomplished things on my bucket list but I wasn’t satisfied.
