Feelers show that the battle line has been drawn between lead music act of Empire Music Entertainment EME, Wizkid and his chairman, Banky W, and Wizkid (Ayo Balogun) may have left the record label for good.
The pop singer's recent outburst on social media Twitter and Instagram has confirmed rumours of disagreements between both parties.
The Banky W led-EME label are yet to give an official statement on the development at the time of filing this report; but sources reveal that the Pakurumo crooner has bid farewell to the label owing to some issues that has been brewing.
On Friday, February 1, 2013, the first bombshell dropped when Wizkid took to twitter and Instagram to make subliminal remarks about his label. 'Don't take Loyalty for stupidity..don't!', 'Moving on to start all over again!... and went on to say 'If dey sleep on u..move on!'.
The development started when Wizkid fired his manager Osagie Osarenkhoe and hired long-time friend Godwin Tom in September 2012. Sources say EME were not pleased with the move to fire Osarenkhoe, but gave in to Wizkid's demands. The label "retained Osarenkhoe to manage EME"s other acts - Skales, Niyola and Shaydee.
Wizkid went on to sign an international management deal with UK based Disturbing London, run by rapper Tinie Tempah. The young singer has been in England for weeks now.
