Apr 25, 2022

Banky W, has replied music producer, Samklef’s allegations that he took his name off as the composer of Wizkid’s hit song, ‘Pakurumo.’

Samklef had earlier called out the label boss for ripping him off his royalties for his contribution to Wizkid’s debut album, as he 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 W in his reply, insisted that he’s never gotten a dime from the royalties and he has never controlled it.

See what he wrote in his reply below;

@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.
