Nigerian Music executive, Actor and Politician, Banky W has finally replied Music producer, Samklef, after the latter accused the former of owing him unpaid royalties from Wizkid’s royalty album.
Samklef shared an image of the royalty sheet and wrote;
Nigerians make una see o!! Dey took my name off and put Steve Micheal. As composer for pakurumo. @bankywellington how far now ? How did we get to this ? Dm me ur email bro. No time to play. Let’s fix things and move on.
Banky in his reply, insisted that he’s never gotten a dime from the royalties and he has never controlled it.
In his words;
@samklef I don’t think you understand that my name is not there and was NEVER there. EME’S name is not there. We have never taken a dime of these royalties and never will. We have never controlled them. You need to take this up with whoever is controlling this and for goodness sake stop talking about me. I’m not the one in charge. I’m minding my business, please handle yours.
My name is not and was never on this royalty split sheet that he’s posting. I’ve never controlled it. He needs to take this up with Sony/ASCAP/BMI and his publisher not me. I’ve never taken a dime of these royalties and never will.
