It’s no longer news that Wizkid was absent during Banky W’s wedding to actress Adesua Etomi in 2017. But how did Banky feel about the absence of a musician who was once signed to his Empire Mates Entertainment (EME) record label?
Banky W was silent about that for years. Just recently, though, in an interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, he made it clear that he was disappointed that Wizkid didn’t show up for him. He graciously admitted that Wizkid tried because he had a lot of shows at the time.
Still, in Wizkid’s deal with EME, he claimed that the. Star Boy didn’t fulfil his part of the contract. He said Wizkid had a five-album deal with the record label but only released two (“Starboy” and “Ayo”) under the record label.
He left in 2014. Banky W noted that although Wizkid didn’t fulfil his part of the contract, he let the musician go because Wizkid wanted to.
Banky: “Yes I was disappointed Wizkid didn’t come for my wedding but I know he tried”

But what does Wizkid think about Banky W’s claim? Reacting to a tweet by a fan who had shared a snippet of the Banky W interview, Wizkid had dropped a “LOL,” indicating he didn’t care much about what was said.
Banky W hasn’t reacted to the LOL tweet.
