Samklef slams Banky W demands royalties from Wizkid’s Album
Nigerian music producer Samuel Oguachuba, better known as Samklef, has accused his colleague, Bankole Wellington, also known as Banky W, of failing to pay him royalties for Wizkid’s debut album, Superstar, released in 2011.
Samklef made this known in an Instagram live video on Friday. He claimed that he was not adequately compensated for his contribution to Wizkid’s then hit song, Pakurumo, off the Superstar album.
Shortly after the Instagram live video, the producer tweeted, “Claiming all my 11 years royalties for Wizkid’s Superstar album in a bit. My lawyers will reach out. It’s 50/50.
Samklef claimed his name was missing in the royalty split sheet he shared online and said a certain Steve Michaels was listed.
In a swift response, Banky W instructed Samklef to demand his royalties from Wizkid.
The EME boss and singer asked Samklef to reach out to Wizkid and Sony Music concerning the royalties, as he denied being a part of a royalty split sheet, which Samklef presented as evidence.
Banky W also stated that he did not know who Steve Michaels was.
“EME has zero involvement/control/influence there. We are not involved. The people who are, are listed on the royalty splits. Direct your anger at them, not me”, Banky W wrote.
In the caption, Samklef said, “Banky W has instructed me to reach out to Wizkid. I believe everything will be resolved in peace.”
Wizkid, formerly signed to Banky W’s label, EME Records, released two albums, ‘Superstar’ and ‘Ayo’, under the title.
Former actress, Caroline Hutchings, accuses Linda Ikeji of ruining her marriage
Caroline Hutchings, one of the cast for the ongoing Real Housewives of Lagos reality show, has alleged that Linda Ikeji’s blog was the cause of her divorce.
Caroline married billionaire business mogul and lawyer Musa Danjuma in October 2007. Her marriage courted many controversies until it hit the rocks in 2016 amid infidelity allegations.
In the third episode of the Real Housewives of Lagos reality show, which aired on Friday, Caroline had confronted Laura Ikeji, the blogger’s sister and a fellow housemate on the show.
She accused Linda of reporting that her daughter did not belong to her ex-husband, Musa Danjuma.
However, in a heated conversation with the blogger’s sister, Laura Ikeji, who also stars in the show, Caroline claimed Linda published false reports about her.
She told Laura, “You can have a blog, but don’t hurt people. Part of the reason my marriage broke was because of Linda. I reached out to her, but she did not care. She lied about my age, and I reached out to her. She lied that my daughter was for another man. I reached out to her, but she did not care. And you sit down here to defend your family? I have a family too. I have children that look up to me. And you sit down here to say you want to slap me? My daughter has two holes in her heart. Do you know how I coped with that? Do you think I am happy being divorced?
“From the time I was married, Linda was on my case. I did not snatch my husband from Linda. I respect your sister so much. I loved her, and I don’t know why she hates me. I got married for love, not for money.”
Linda has since debunked the allegations.
