A Nigerian lady has accused superstar singer, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun popularly know as Wizkid, of not being a good manager to his signee, Terri.
The lady simply known as Jessica stated that Wizkid’s ex label boss, Olubankole Wellington aka Banky W did a good job of promoting and pushing him to succeed.
She noted that he became a big star mostly thanks to Banky W. Jessica went further by saying that Wizkid is however not doing same for Starboy Terri.
The young lad who is obviously disappointed with the Joro crooner stressed that if Banky had handled Wiz as ‘badly’ as he is doing for Terri, then he would still be up and coming.
She wrote; ”Wizkid got bigger than Banky cos Banky did his best for him. If dem treat am as he dey do Terri he for still dey studio dey hustle.. Your fave is a bad manager & boss”.
Mixed reactions from Netizens who reacted to her post:
@KingDreyObani; “The problem with Terri is, he wants to sing like Wizkid You have to be yourself, you no fit sing pass who you dey copy….ask Durella vs D’banj…Callejon vs Ronaldo….. unless the person don d*e Same thing happening with Ceeza millie. Be yourself and find your own sounds ah sahm“.
@Moleculeboy_ said; “For one, Banky W was never Wizkid Manager. Under Banky W, there was also Niyola, Shaydee & Skales and I know for a fact none of them have blow well, so does that make Banky W bad again?
A record label owner gives you his label name and recording platform, the rest is left to u”.
@its_emyce replied @Moleculeboy; “This is cap…Banky had proprietary rights, performative right and endorsement right while Wiz was with him. Banky sponsored the recordings and video..Not all artists would blow, but as their boss, you have to make that effort for them”
@AmonBass; “When last Terri drop song sef. Wizkid of EME dey spoil us with jams back to back, no resting whatsoever. This generation artiste just think they are keeping people anticipated by ghosting for a long time”.
@EseogheneReigns; “Na laziness jare. Look other newcomers under labels dey hustle dey drop. Independent artists have my respect, they work so fucking hard and are actually making it E.g Benson. Terri get all those leverage dey drop 1 song per year. Naso him mates for industry dey hustle?”
@AmonBass; “The thing is that Wizkid got bigger becos he is very talented and not just hardworking but smart in his decisions, the same record label had skales and shaydee that are nowhere, does that mean BankyW didn’t do anytin for them also. Terri is just unserious”.
@FemiTope5; “Many are talking as if they know how Terri and Wizkid relate. Olamide has brought up many artists, same applies to Don Jazy, MI, Davido and Banky W. Why is Wizkid different? Even Timaya helped to raise Patoranking.”
