Nigerian Singer Cum Politician, Bankole Wellington has reacted to an old tweet of his former protege, Wizkid, wherein the latter had begged the former 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 in a move to inspire people never to give up and for a while it seemed to have worked as a lot of social media users felt motivated.
However, Banky W clarified the tweet as he explained it was 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 we had been working together for a year and a half or so. We were just catching cruise. It does not happen by tweeting. It’s by working.
