Nigerian renowned Singer Cum Politician, Bankole Wellington well known as Banky W has reacted to an old tweet of his former protege, Wizkid, begging his former boss to be signed onto his label as he was still a struggling act at the time.
Fans had dug up the tweet which was from 10 years ago in a move to inspire people never to give up and for a while it seemed to have worked as a lot of social media users felt motivated.
However, Banky W clarified the tweet as he explained it was a joke as Wizkid was already signed to EME at the time. Banky, in his words, wrote that ‘they were just catching cruise’.
He wrote on twitter: “Lol so I hate to depress everyone that’s using this tweet as motivation, but this was a joke. He was already signed to EME at the time and we had been working together for a year and a half or so. We were just catching cruise. It does not happen by tweeting. It’s by working”.
