Wizkid to return to former music label, EME

If everything goes according to plan, Wizkid will soon be returning to his former music label, EME Music Group, this is according to a reliable industry source. The source revealed to me exclusively that Wizkid and EME bosses have been going back and forth for the last couple of weeks through their lawyers trying to agree on new terms of them working together again.
"Wizkid leaving EME was just his way of pushing the bosses at the label to take him seriously and increase his earning percentage. When he joined EME he wasn't a star but then he became a mega star and was making a lot of money for the label and they still didn't increase his earning percentage so he took a walk. Now they are working on a new contract that will favour Wizkid." The source said
I hear in the new contract being drafted, EME will not take a dime from Wizkid's international deals. When they start working together again, remember you read it here first! :-)

hehe he! and am commenting here first...wish the star boy the best

★★PRINCE CHARMING™★★ said...

I doubt this. Watch Wizkid's last video "The Matter" with Malek Berry, it has "Star Boy Entertainment" as the opening theme and nothing about EME was seen in the video or said as he always does in all songs, artistes don't just move in and out of record labels that fast within a short time frame.

Well, its about time.
Banky couldn't imagine himself going broke.
Or maybe 'cause they'v sacked the Demuren brothers' father.
Lol.No money again.
I can bet that they pleaded with him.
No record label has done this before.
Up Wizzyyyyyyyy! Blessed boy.

Banky sure needs him more,cos I don't know what he sings.he's better off as a producer than an artist.

Good piece of news coming from Linda today, its going be pretty good if its all resolved and Wizzy makes it back to EME...

Anonymous said...

Yh he should work for himself and make his money,Instead of sharing his money with EME.....

Anonymous said...

I can tell you without seeing the contract that no music contract is usually written like. This will be an exception to the rule. Anyway, lets see how this develops.

he already had an unusually lucrative contract as it was. anyway, good luck to them both

Wizkid shoulda remained his own boss.if he goes back now "dem go do am strong thing"(in banky's voice)

There is no EME without wizkid. The label would've just crumbled like a pack of cards, and wizzy himself is such a loyalist. Such a mature way of doing things

Shebi? They've invested in him and taken him from a nothing to a "mega star" and now all of a sudden he doesn't want them to enjoy the fruits of their investment? renegotiating to increase your earning percentage is one thing but totally cutting out the ppl who took u from nothing to something is another thing

Kay said...

Abegi! Me thinks Wizened sowii Wizkey abi Wizkid has bn out to d real world. N has seen how "easy" it is n has come running bak. All dt gist bout him trying to mk them understand how useful he is n increase his pay blah blah blah is all bull! Mscheeewwww!

This is the 1 and only problem that has ruined nigeria... MONEY, Even abroad artist share their profit...
Exactly what ppl think is the real cause for Tupacs death.

We Nigerians need to take a chill pill in our pursuit of money.

Watch and see how MayD will fall cos he's reaping were he dint sow... MayD wouldn't av ever seen the US so soon not even without hard labour, wouldn't in his life be on the same track with Akon, but through all this he was given a suit in square ville, an EOD with a contract, he turned all of it down... Then came up with confirm record!

Let's learn to share, break bread and be contended, cos ur life could av been ZERO if the HERO like banky dint step in.

Ibe said...

I honestly don't think Wizkid was being a bad guy (though he's still the "baddest boy") when he went to Twitter several weeks ago venting his disappointment with Banky and EME's management. No ones like to be cheated, as his reputation soars so should his earnings too. Good to see the team back together anyway. #EME
