In a recent chat with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on the BlackBox interview series, the singer turned politician revealed that he was disappointed with the former EME signee for not showing up at his wedding.
“Was I disappointed that he wasn’t at the wedding? I was but I know he tried because there was a show with a lot of the artists…I think it was One Africa,”.
He also spoke about Wizkid’s contract with EME and how he made his exit from the record label easy devoid of drama.
He said Wizkid left the label without fullfilling his part in the contract.
“I think it was a 5 album deal and he had done 2 solo albums… I think he still owed 3 more albums but he wanted to leave. And for me, that was enough because I don’t want anybody to stay where they want to stay.” he said.
Wizkid signed a record deal with Banky W’s Empire Mates Entertainment (E.M.E) in 2009.
He released two albums ‘StarBoy’ and ‘Ayo’ under the record label.
He left the label in 2014.
