Nigerian singer, Bankole Wellington better known as Banky W has opened up on his relationship and supposed feud with his former signee, Wizkid.
Speaking with media personality, Ebuka Uchendu, Banky W claimed that he had an agreement with the singer as part of their contract deal but he (Wizkid) didn’t complete his tasks on the number of albums as contained in their agreement before he decided to leave.
He added that when Wizkid was signed in, he promised to produce 5 albums, but he only did 2 before he left, adding however that they have a cordial relationship and there is no animosity between them.
Banky W stated that he couldn’t hold Wizkid back as he saw the desire and determination in him to leave and he didn’t want to create animosity and resentment by forcing him to remain in the label.
He said, “I think he was supposed to do 5 album but he had done 2 solo album. I think he wanted to leave and for him that was enough. I didn’t want anyone to stay when they want to leave cause that would create animosity and resentment”.
He added, “No I didn’t try to talk him out because I could tell mentally that he was ready to do other things and for me I always felt somethings are meant to happen for a season and that was the season we were meant to be”v
He also admitted that he was disappointed when Wizkid didn’t attend his wedding. He, however, stated that he understood that the singer had a concert which he couldn’t abandon.
“I was disappointed he wasn’t at my wedding but I knew he was in Dubai for the One Africa Show”.
