Rumours have been rife recently regarding a rift between EME Records and Wizkid. It seems our worst fears are confirmed as the two camps simultaneously release their latest independent of one another.
Earlier this week, Nigerian Super Star R&B singer and EME Records Boss Banky W released the official tracklist for his upcoming album ‘R&BW’ where Wizkid’s name is conspicuous by its absence.
Wizkid, on the other hand, who has spent the last few weeks in the UK recording his next album, has just released a new music video without EME. The video is titled ‘The Matter’ featuring UK based Maleek Berry.
The video opens with ‘Starboy Ent’ – the supposedly new label allegedly owned by Wizkid. There is no sign of the hitherto ubiquitous EME logo.
So far, it seems the writing is on the wall. But we are still hopeful that we can see Wizkid and Banky reunite on the stage Friday, on February 15, 2013, when Banky W hosts his ‘The Grand Love’ concert in Lagos.
If this is true then this is so sad!
