Banky W has assured me I’ll receive royalties, says Samklef


Music producer, Samuel Oguachuba, popularly known as Samklef, on Saturday revealed that Banky W has assured him of receiving his royalties for Wizkid’s debut album.

The producer, who revealed this in an Instagram post on Saturday, noted that he’d receive “performance royalty” and “mechanical royalty” from Banky W.

This came hours after the producer called out Banky W for ripping him off his (Samklef’s) royalties for his contribution to Wizkid’s debut album.

Wizkid, who was formerly signed to Banky W’s label, EME records, released two albums ‘Superstar’ and ‘Ayo’ under the label.

In an Instagram live video late Friday, Samklef, who produced Wizkid’s then hit song, Pakurumo, off Superstar album, claimed that Banky W failed to properly compensate him (Samklef) for his input in the hit song.

According to Samklef, Banky W, whose real name is Bankole Wellington, told Wizkid to remove Samklef’s name as a contributor in the song.

After addressing the issue on his Instagram life, Samklef took to his Twitter page to state that he would claim his royalties for Wizkid’s album.
