EME records boss, Bankole Wellington, popularly known as 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, who went on instagram live to rant and make accusations, eventaually calling out  with Banky W following his tell-all interview with Ebuka, had called out the label boss for ripping him off his (Samklef’s) royalties for his contribution to Wizkid’s debut album –Superstar.

Banky had alleged in the said interview that Wizkid owed his record label three albums as stipulated in their contractual agreement.

Samklef didn’t agree with Banky’s claim and went on IG Live to demand for royalties on his input into Wizkid’s album.

The music producer left many in shock when he shared a screenshot to show that his name had  indeed been replaced with one Steve Micheal as the composer of ‘Pakurumo.’

Samklef actually mentioned Banky W’s handle in the caption on the image and urged him to respond for clarity sake.

“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. @sonymusic @sonymusicafrica,” Samklef’s post read.

In response to the allegation, the EME boss came to the comment section of the post where he asked the music producer to direct his grievances to the proper channel.

Banky, who also distanced himself from the control of the song’s proceeds, cautioned Samklef to desist from peddling his name in the public.

“@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,” Banky’s reply read.

Samklef has continued to make suggestive posts on social media since then as watchers hold their breath for the next possible twist.
