A throwback video of Nigerian Afrobeats singer, Wizkid speaking on how much he contributed to the growth of his former record label, Empire Mates Entertainment, has surfaced on socil media.
In an interview with Olisa Adibua in 2014, Wizkid was asked if he has paid back enough after leaving EME despite the time and resources it dedicated to building his brand.
He said that when he joined the music label, EME was not much of a top contender, but he made money for the company after releasing hit songs consistently.
The old video resurfaced amid the recent interview granted by EME boss, Banky W where he revealed that Wiz released only two albums out of the five he was contractually obligated to drop before leaving the label.
Wizkid noted in the interview that nobody goes into lifetime contract with anyone and there is no problem with someone trying to forge a path and expand independently.
