Empire Mates Entertainment artiste Wizkid recently got in an interview with The NET and basically all the recent stories about the Holla At Your Boy hit-maker were addressed.
Probably one of his most revealing interviews in a while.
View Excerpts From The Interview Below!
– How was it, working with the likes of Akon, Wale, Kardinal Offishall, The Game and Young Jeezy?
It was crazy, because I was at BET, then I was invited for a dinner. Wale has always been my friend, and [I’m also friends with] Bu, who’s Akon‘s younger brother.
He came there with Young Jeezy and introduced me, and that was how I started work with him.
When we recorded the first song, everybody loved it, [and] before I knew it The Game came in and heard the song and said he had to jump on it.
We booked another session for the next day, then came back and recorded. Chris Brown and every other person came through, and it was a great feeling. I felt blessed.
– What is the difference between when it was just you, Banky W, and Skales in the EME crew, to the new family now?
It was Banky and I even before Skales (Laughs). The dream at that time was to build an empire, bring some artistes, and build them on the same platform.
It’s just a dream coming true, and it’s something we have always wished to do. We just made sure we built the empire, [and] I just thank God that everything is working out well.
EME has always been about how good you are, not how well dressed you are.
– Banky W postponed his album for the team to release the compilation; would you ever take that bullet for the team?
I [also] didn’t release an album this year just because of the EME album. I was supposed to release an album on June 12 this year, [but] I put that aside, which is a big sacrifice for me.
For someone that works hard like I do and [has] a lot of materials, yeah, I’ve taken a bullet already (Laughs).
– Why did you part ways with your manager Osagie Osarenkhoe?
It was a business decision, because the brand is growing. She’s still working with a couple of other EME artistes to push their brands.
She is still part of the team, we just needed more hands.
– How has working with your new manager Godwin Tom been?
It’s been great.
