The EME boys who have been on a tour in North American, where recently interviewed with an MTV Iggy where they shared the EME experience and their future plans.

The EME boss Banky W, spoke on the need for change in the Nigerian Society which inspired the track “Change”.

“A lot of young people are frustrated that we’re seeing the same issues plaguing Nigeria for years on end. It just feels like it’s time for us to speak up and to stand up and just force things to go in a different direction. And when I say force I mean not violently or anything crazy like that,” he said.

“I just think things remain the same because we don’t do anything about it. Nigeria can change for the better and it will change when young people especially decide that enough is enough and that’s really what the song “Change” is about,” Banky W said.

Pop sensation Wizkid also spoke on the team’s insatiable urge to continually achieve greatness.

“Empire Mates is an empire, and we’re going to be building for a very long time. That’s why we double up on the work with the songs, we triple up on it. Everybody is always in the studio, trying to work, trying to make things happen. I feel so blessed being with the family,” he said.
