When Will Wizkid Officially Dump Banky W?

Given all that has played out in the past few weeks between star singer, Banky W and his embattled EME boss, Banky W, not many would object to a submission that the official break up of both parties is merely being held back by the familiar element known as time.

From highly suggestive messages in public glare to musical affiliations that do not hold graceful outcomes for either party, the relationship between Wizkid and Banky W has since boarded the same train D'banj and Don Jazzy hopped on before they eventually parted way and made it official.

Although Wizkid’s exit from Banky W’s Empire Mates Entertainment has not attracted the kind of controversy that greeted D’banj’s separation from Don Jazzy, he seems to be determined to chart a new course for himself.

In a recent Tweet, Wizkid indicated that he has pitched his tent with a new records label known as Star Boy Entertainment.

He has not come out directly to claim ownership of the label, but it is widely speculated that it belongs to him.

Fans of the young, talented artiste have been sending him dozens of goodwill messages on Twitter, acknowledging the birth of Star Boy Entertainment.

In addition to the label, it was gathered that the singer had signed a deal with an international management team based in England and appointed his long-time friend, Godwin Tom, manager.

But the rift between both artistes had deepened, despite several efforts by Banky W to prevail on Wizkid not to leave. Even an attempt to get the latter’s mother to mediate in the matter is said to have failed to yield positive results.

Things started falling apart between the young artiste and EME when he fired his manager, Osagie Osarenkhoe, in September 2012 for reasons best known to him. Further proof that all was not well came to light when he moved out of his former residence to a new apartment somewhere in Lekki Phase 1.

Early this month, Wizkid gave the indication on Twitter that he had finally made up his mind to quit EME.
Many people read between the lines and concluded that he might be nursing a deep grudge against the management of the records label.
