Has Wizkid swallowed the bitter pill and returned home? These are some of the questions readers have asked us, since photos of the singer with EME signees Shaydee and DJ Xclusive surfaced online.
Apparently, the trio who were escorted by a Hum-vee and security escorts drove down to Cotonou, Benin Republic for a music show going down tonight (April 5) happily took pictures 0f themselves as they journeyed to the neighbouring country.
‘Cotonou , we here! @djxclusive83 @shaydeeboi !! EME/STARBOY!!‘, Wizkid wrote as he posted a picture of himself, Shaydee and DJ Xclusive as soon as they landed Benin.
After the rumoured split from Banky W and parent record label EME, Wizkid went on to start up his own music label Star Boi Entertainment not long after he controversially declared his ‘freedom’ over social network Twitter. Don’t forget his absence from the stage at Banky’s ‘The Grand Love Project’ concert.
While fans and critics pondered on the situation, both parties tried to stay clear of the press and on rare occasions where they were cornered to speak about the situation, they assured fans everything was okay.
While Banky continued to assure fans that Wizzy was still a part of the EME family, Wizzy was less bothered, shooting videos without the EME emblem appearing in them. Wizzy later explained that he had started his own label but was still ‘part of the family.’
Insiders at the EME camp tell us the whole brouhaha started as a result of money issues; Wizkid was said to have suddenly ‘woken up’ and wanted a better deal than what the label was offering…
We guess they might have reached a reasonable conclusion and Wizzy is once again hoisted his EME flag…? Now I’m happy to seee them come back. Yaga!
