Samklef had previously requested that Banky W pay him royalties for producing Big Wiz’s blockbuster song ‘Pakurumo,’ which was recorded while the singer was signed to EME.
Banky then ordered Samklef to contact Wizkid about the royalties, after the latter denied being a part of a royalty split sheet submitted by Samklef as evidence.
In the royalty split sheet shared by Samklef, the composers of the song were written as Wizkid and one Steve Michaels.
Samklef claimed that his name had been changed to Steve Michaels and questioned Banky W’s involvement.
Banky, on the other hand, told Samklef that he didn’t know who Steve Michaels was and that he didn’t have a claim to the royalties because his name and EME weren’t on the sheet.
Banky asked Samklef to take up his royalty claims with Wizzy and Sony, with whom Wizkid signed a contract after leaving EME, according to a screenshot supplied by Samklef.
Now, the producer has written to the Starboy Frontman on his social media page, demanding a clear explanation.
