We can authoritatively tell you, Wizkid is no longer managed by Osagie – who more or less groomed him before he got signed to EME following what a source says ‘several issues but was particularly ego‘. Wizkid ended his contract with the female manager who then took up the management of other EME artistes – Skales and Niyola on her M.etal management outfit. Source says there’s no bad blood between Wizzy and Osagie; and ‘managing other artistes/labelmate is not a compensation move by bosses at EME.’
Over three months after they parted ways, Wizkid just finalized a deal and hired Godwin Tom as his new manager. A source close to both parties confirms this to OMGnigeria. Godwin Tom was seen with the star singer on the night of The Headies from the hotel room, rehearsals to the red carpet.
In other news, Wizkid has been announced as part of the line up of performers for the BBC Radio 1xtra Live alongside Trey Songz and Kendrick Lamar.
