Banky W and Wizkid
Banky W has just revealed the tracklist for his new album – R& and guess what, Wizkid wasn’t featured in any any of the tracks.
The album sees collaboration with all of the EME acts besides Wizkid.
The absence of Wizkid in the album kinda confirms the on-going speculations of the ‘management crisis’ that the E.M.E is allegedly facing.
Meanwhile, new reports surfacing online reveal that Wizkid’s mum, “Mrs Balogun has been dragged into the crisis by Banky W”.
Since spirited efforts to get Wizkid, to retrace his steps back to the label that “gave him the platform to become the superstar he is today” has yielded no results, Banky W has decided to seek Mrs Balogun’s help, 247naijagossip reports.
“According to reports we are monitoring, Banky W supposedly went to Wizkid’s mum seeking her intervention in the crisis as it was becoming clearer that they (EME) were losing their hottest prospect yet. Banky was said to have reminded her of how he helped propel Wizzy’s career to greatness and being a mother, she reasoned in that direction and promised to talk to her son.” 247naijagossip claims.
Banky W recently told the media during the world press conference organised by COSON at the Protea Hotel, GRA, Ikeja, that “Wizkid is going international and as a result we have to re-negotiate the contract he signed. Wizkid has his own idea of how he wants to do things and he has plans for himself too. Wizkid is still with us, there’s no problem, things will be sorted out soon.”
We really hope things don’t get messy like it did with D’banj and Mohits or May D and Square records.
