Bankole Wellington, best known by his stage as Banky W, has spoken out about his connection with Wizkid, his former signee.
Banky W said in an interview with media personality Ebuka Uchendu that he had an agreement with Wizkid as part of their contract arrangement, but that he (Wizkid) didn’t finish his responsibilities on the amount of albums as stipulated in their contract before deciding to quit.
He went on to say that when Wizkid was signed on, he promised to make five albums, but only two were completed before he departed, but that they have a friendly connection and no hatred.
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”.
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”.
