He said, “In terms of when he stopped being on the label, it was lack of communication that caused this war. At the time I think he had started to dream bigger and just wanna be in control of his own shape, of his own destiny, and there was a lot of chatter going around; people saying this, saying that.

Wizkid has neither corroborated or debunked Banky W’s disclosure but an old interview resurfaced on social media where Wizkid opened up that he left E.M.E with zero naira.

Samklef, who worked with Wizkid on the Superstar album, has now shared an insider information on the real reason Big Wiz left E.M.E

In his words;

I won’t blame Banky, it’s a natural thing to be bossy and entitled. So when you are bossy and entitled and your Artist already knows your weak point then they will use it against you.

Wizkid did not want to be tied down under a boss because he saw signs and one of these signs was Banky dictating to Wizkid on how he should put out his music. He said Banky wanted to control Wizkid and already the “Holla at your Boy” crooner was already famous at the time.
