End Of The Romance: Is Wizkid Leaving E.M.E?

End Of The Romance: Is Wizkid Leaving E.M.E?

Looks like we are about to witness another major break-up in the Nigerian music industry after the famous D’banj/Don Jazzy break up, with reports of Wizkid parting ways with E.M.E.

The story all around the music industry suggests that Wizkid has parted ways with E.M.E record label controlled by Banky W.

An insight on this was Wizkid’s absence at the Lagos Countdown Concert on New Year Eve, even though Banky W claimed Starboy was sick, as other sources reported contradicting stories of Wizkid partying in the United Kingdom.

Wizkid, who parted ways with his long time manager and friend Osagie Osarenkhoe, in September 2012, is said to be dissatisfied with his contract agreement and sharing quota within the label.

Another obvious indication of the possible music break-up is that his Twitter Bio now reads, Management @DisturbingLDN @Godwin Tom with no mention whatsoever of E.M.E Records.

Both parties have not put out a direct word regarding this matter, as Banky W squashed the break-up reports earlier this week in a recent interview, saying “Wizkid is still very much part of the E.M.E family“.

He also added that Wizzy has  an international management and recording contract with British rapper, Tinie Tempah’s Disturbing London outfit and Akon’s  Konvict Records respectively.

There have been reports stating that Konvict music is offering Wizkid a more lucrative offer than what E.M.E is offering, which explains why the singer decided not to drop an album again this year and opted for the mixtape instead.

The singer posted some tweets (view below) which have added more fuel to this fire of rumors.

If this report of their break up is true, then this goes a long way to explain what our music industry in Nigeria is turning into, where loyalty is continually questioned.

    I hope he stays though. This is crazy. I remember talking to the MD of a popular music label and he says the same thing about loyalty. Most artistes want to use you as a stepping stone. It’s all about them and they don’t even put the managers into consideration.
