Wizkid’s Contract With EME Was 5 Albums But He Left After Releasing 2, Banky W Says

Famous musician turn politician, Bankole Wellington aka Banky W has revealed how Wizkid failed to fulfil his contract agreement under EME label.

In his recent interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Banky W mentioned that when he signed Wizkid, he promised to produce 5 albums as part of his contract but he only did 2 before he left.

Wizkid who was signed to Banky W’s Empire Mates Entertainment (E.M.E) in 2009 and left in 2014 was supposed to release 5 albums. He released two albums ‘StarBoy‘ and ‘Ayo‘ under the record label.

He said, “Wizkid was supposed to do 5 albums but he had done 2 solo albums. I think he wanted to leave and for him, that was enough.

“I did not want anyone to stay when they want to leave cause that would create animosity and resentment.”

Banky W, however, clarified that they have a cordial relationship and he did not force Wizkid to stay in the label to avoid resentment.

No, I didn’t try to talk him out of it because I could tell mentally that he was ready to do other things and for me, I always felt some things are meant to happen for a season and that was the season we were meant to be,” Banky W concluded.
