"I Hope All My Artistes Are As Successful As Wizkid" - Banky W

Nigerian R&B singer and EME record label Exec, Banky W is super proud of his former protege, Wizkid that he now wishes the other artists signed to his label could be as successful.

In his interview with Channels TV's "Rubbin Minds" Sunday, Banky said its always a 'good thing' for younger artists to grow up and have independent careers. He says:

"I signed Wiz and he blow up and now he is doing 'Star Boy' (music label) and that is a good thing. That is not a bad thing... The interesting thing is to allow an artist to renegotiate. has earned the right to sit at the table to do what he wants to do and I hope all my artistes are as successful as Wizkid."

The "Jaiye Ori Mi" hit-maker also debunked claims that Wizkid's tune, "The Matter" was inspired by disagreement between the duo during the latter’s contract renegotiation.

He insists that both parties remain cool but blames haters for always biulding reports around negativity:

"I think that people tend to make things a little more negative than they are... Every label executive prays for their artistes to grow to the point when they want to set up their own label and they have the ability to do so. It is a natural progression in music."
