Wizkid’s contract with EME was 5 albums, but he left after releasing 2, says Banky W

Famed musician-turned-politician, Bankole Wellington, aka Banky W, has revealed how Wizkid failed to honor his contract deal under EME label.

In his recent interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Banky W said 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 (EME) in 2009 and left in 2014, was set to release 5 albums. He released two albums ‘StarBoy’ and ‘Ayo’ under the record label.

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

“I didn’t want anyone to stay if they wanted to leave, because that would create animosity and resentment.”

However, Banky W clarified that they are in a cordial relationship and he didn’t force Wizkid to stay with the label to avoid resentment.

“No, I wasn’t trying to talk him out of it because I could see mentally he was ready to do other things and for me I always felt like some things had to be done for a season and that was the season we were. ” intended,” concluded Banky W.
