Veteran Nigerian music artist and politician, Banky W has responded to allegations made by music producer Samklef that he owes him money for producing Wizkid’s smash song “Pakurumo.”
He made his claim in a social media outburst that the sharing formula was 50/50, but that he had not received any royalties since the project’s development. He further claimed that Banky W would hear from his lawyers about unpaid royalties shortly.
Banky W said in an interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu that he was disappointed that Wizkid didn’t attend his wedding to Adesua Etomi, and Samklef was reacting to that.
Banky W had responded to Samklef’s assertion that he had not been paid for producing the project by advising him to take his complaints to the relevant authorities. He stated that his and his record label’s (Empire Mates Entertainment) names were never mentioned in any document or agreement signed by the music producer.
He argued that neither he nor his record label received any of the royalties that were allegedly due to the music producer. He closed by telling Samklef to quit talking about him because he isn’t in charge of whatever Samklef claimed to have joined up for.
