According to Banky W, the Grammy winner, Wizkid was signed onto his EME record label to drop 5 studio albums as the contract but after two albums, the Starboy decided to leave.
Banky W said;
“I think the details escaped me but it was about five albums and he had done two and I think he still owed three albums but he wanted to leave and I do not want anybody to stay where they don’t want to be, because it’ll just create resentment.”
Well, Wizkid in an interview with Capital Fm revealed that he left EME because he was popular but broke at the same time.
According to Wizkid, many people were of the view that he was making good money under EME but that was far from the truth because he was really suffering.
He added that even his account balance was N.0.000 when he was still under EME and that is the main reason behind his exit.
