Samklef Calls Out Banky W Over 11 Years Royalty on Wizkid’s Album

Banky W had granted a radio interview recently where he put Wizkid in a bad light


Samuel Oguachuba, also known as Samklef, has criticized musician Banky W, demanding royalties for Wizkid’s debut album, and saying that Banky is not a good leader.

Samklef, who has produced several hit songs for Wizkid, Sunny Neji, Ruggedman, Durella, Skales, and many more formerly worked with EME Records, which belongs to Banky W.

Wizkid released ‘Superstar’ and ‘Ayo' albums under EME.

Banky W had granted a radio interview recently where he put Wizkid in a bad light, to which Wizkid replied with only a capitalized 'LOL'.

Samklef on April 23 posted his disappointment at not getting the 11 years royalty payment for his work on Wizkid's first album.

He claimed that Wizkid’s Superstar CD owed him 11 years of royalties, which Banky had yet to pay him.

“Claiming all my 11 years royalties for WiZkid super star album in a bit. My Laywers will reach out. It’s 50/50. Anybody wey don collect my money better reach out o! Samkef fine were o! Make dem tag Banky o! My money go don plenty o! Before him go use am campaign for election.”

Samklef said in footage that went viral on social media that Banky W is a dictator who damaged his relationship with Wizkid. That, according to him, is the reason EME died after Wizkid left.

He then tweeted “Banky don message me” and posted a message suggesting that he was replaced with another person.

Banky has told Samklef to take up his royalty claims with Wizzy and Sony, with whom Wizkid signed a contract after leaving EME.
