Nigerian Singer Cum Politician, Bankole Wellington has reacted to an old tweet of his former protege, Wizkid, wherein the latter had begged the previous to be signed onto his label as he was still a struggling act at the time.
Fans had dug up the tweet which was from 10 years ago during a move to inspire people never to offer up and for a short time it appeared to have worked as tons of social media users felt motivated.
However, Banky W clarified the tweet as he explained it had been a joke as Wizkid was already signed to EME at the time. Banky, in his words, wrote that ‘they were just catching cruise’.
He wrote on twitter ;
Lol so I hate to depress everyone that’s using this tweet as motivation, but this was a joke. He was already signed to EME at the time and that we had been working together for a year and a half approximately . We were just catching cruise. It doesn’t happen by tweeting. It’s by working.
