According to reports, Wizkid might be on his way back to Empire Mates Entertainment, following weeks of intense negotiations between his team and the label.
“Wizkid will soon be returning to his former music label, EME Music Group, this is according to a reliable industry source,” reports the blogger LIB. “The source revealed to me exclusively that Wizkid and EME bosses have been going back and forth for the last couple of weeks through their lawyers trying to agree on new terms of them working together again.
“I hear in the new contract being drafted, EME will not take a dime from Wizkid’s international deals.”[READ: “EME is my family”: The new Y! Magazine speaks exclusively to Wizkid]
According to a source with knowledge of the discussions, “Wizkid leaving EME was just his way of pushing the bosses at the label to take him seriously and increase his earning percentage. When he joined EME he wasn’t a star but then he became a mega star and was making a lot of money for the label and they still didn’t increase his earning percentage so he took a walk. Now they are working on a new contract that will favour Wizkid.”
Calls made to his manager, Godwin Tom have not been answered. We have an eye on this!
