Popular Nigerian Singer and Actor, Bankole Wellington popularly known as Banky W has revealed how he felt about Wizkid’s absence at his wedding.
Banky W and his wife, Adesua Etomi, recently joined their friend and colleague, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu for the popular Blackbox interview.
The interview saw the entertainer having honest conversations about his journey in the industry and some of his encounters with colleagues.
During their conversation, Banky W revealed that he was disappointed with the former EME signee for not showing up at his wedding.
“Was I disappointed that he wasn’t at the wedding? I was but I know he tried because there was a show with a lot of the artists…I think it was One Africa,” he said.
“As a matter of fact Tiwa ended up…there was business class and she took economy seat so she could make it. But he called at the time that he was so sorry.” He said.
However, many couldn’t turn a blind eye to a portion of the interview that saw Banky W telling an unfiltered version of Wizkid’s exit from his EME record label.
He spoke about Wizkid’s contract with EME and how he made his exit from the record label easy devoid of drama.
Banky W also said Wizkid left the label without full filling his part in the contract.
“I think it was a 5 album deal and he had done 2 solo albums… I think he still owed 3 more albums but he wanted to leave. And for me, that was enough because I don’t want anybody to stay where they don’t want to stay.” he said.
Wizkid signed a record deal with Banky W’s Empire Mates Entertainment (E.M.E) in 2009.
The Starboy Crooner released two albums ‘StarBoy’ and ‘Ayo’ under the record label. He left the label in 2014.
