Wizkid Is Wiser Than D’banj – Chude Jideonwo

Y!Naija boss, Chude Jideonwo on Monday gave props to starboy and  ‘Pakurumo’ crooner, Wizkid for reconciling with his label, Empire Mates Entertainment; comparing him to D’banj and stating that he is ‘wiser.’

In the past year, several musicians have created buzz in the music industry with their departure from their record label where they broke through.

D’banj, Wizkid, MayD and Eva  top the list of this estranged relationship.

Wizkid caused tongues to wag after removing EME from his Twitter account. He also did not use the EME label name on his video ‘The Matter’.

Eventually he reconciled with label boss, Banky W.

This singular act seems to have won the respect and admiration of many including Chude Jideonwo, who took to twitter to let his thoughts known.

It’s really surprising that (in re-connecting with EME), Wizkid has shown more wisdom than D’banj :(“ he tweeted, referring to the Wizkid’s return to EME and yet floating his own record label; StarBoy, which is already signing a number of musicians.


 

 

D’banj parted ways with his friend and producer, Don Jazzy in March 2012 to join Kanye West’s G.O.O.D music and inspite of appeals by fans, the two music stars are yet to reconcile.
