An online news website, Aproko247, has exclusively reported that the rumoured split between Banky W and Wizkid may have resulted from an alleged high difference in what Banky W gets from revenues made by Wizkid.
This, as it was reported, has been bothering Wizkid until he summoned the courage to ask for an improved contract from Banky W, which hit him (Banky W) by surprise.
“You know Wizkid is the backbone of EME music label. The boy (Wizkid) feels that Banky W has been milking too much from him with the large chunk of what Banky W takes from what the boy makes.
“Wizkid has asked for an improved contract because the present one allocates much of Wizkid’s earnings to Banky W. You know when you are coming up, you sign any kind of deal because you just want to climb stardom.
“That is the situation the boy finds himself but Banky felt hurt that Wizkid could ask for an improved offer after what he (Banky W) has done for him.
“This was the beginning of the problem between them. The boy even threatened to leave the label sometimes ago but Banky W felt it was a joke. He took it with a pinch of salt. Now, he is at a crossroad and confused on what to do,” a source was quoted to have told Aproko247.
The online news journal also reported that Wizkid’s mum waded into the matter but Wizkid reportedly ignored his mum advice and stood his ground on leaving the label.
“Wizkid’s mum has also tried to talk sense to her son but it seems the guy (Wizkid) is bent on moving on with his life,” the site quoted its source to have told them.
The rumoured split is rather becoming the same pattern with D’Banj and Don Jazzy’s split of 2012, which happened at about this period too.
No official statement has been released by either Banky W or Wizkid on the issue. It is hoped that the rumoured break-up will be finally laid to rest as soon as possible.
