by Nigeria Music Network / 1,691 Views

Starboy Wizkid covers the all new Y! Magazine. Yes, Nigerian Popstar Wizkid Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun boldly covers the latest issue of Y! Magazine March 2013 where he reportedly says "EME is my family". Learn more!




WIZKID Y! MAGAZINE MARCH 2013 ISSUE 

In the cover story titled ‘No kidding’, Wizkid speaks frankly about his background, the history of his music, the evolution of his sound and the people who have made him what he is now – including former manager Osagie Osarenkhoe and Empire Mates Entertainment boss Banky W.

The shoot was anchored by the iconic Kelechi Amadi-Obi, with styling by Toyin Lawani of Tiannah Styling.

“EME Is My Family” -Wizkid




Could the rumors be true? That Wizkid is no longer signed to Empire Mates Entertainment (EME Records)? One could easily interpret Wizkid's "EME is my family" statement on Y! Magazine in so many ways, but the full story is on the Magazine's latest print edition when you grab a copy.

Information from sources explained that "if we really want to be analytical about Wizkid's statement “EME Is My Family”, that technically doesn’t mean he’s still a part of the label, it’s like not getting along with your sister or brother, you don’t want to do business with them, but they are still blood.

Speaking on the issue, Chude Jideonwo, Editor-in-Chief of Y! said “As this magazine went to print, the rumours were just about confirmed in public and sources had certainly confirmed in private. The amazing talent powerhouse called Wizkid had aggressively parted ways with EME, the label powered by Banky W – interesting news in light of what he told us only weeks before.”

Based on your observation of the whole Wizkid and Banky W's EME Records breakup scenario; in your own opinion - do you think Wizkid and Banky W have truly parted ways, but still friends?
