He mentioned the Superstar and Ayo albums while noting that the singer owed three projects at the time of his exit from the label.
Banky, however, explained that at the time he could tell Wizkid was ready to leave and he didn’t want to keep him any longer than he wanted to be around. Banky said:
"He wanted to leave and for me, that was enough. I don’t want anybody to stay where they don’t to be, it would just create animosity, and resentment."
When Ebuka asked if he tried to talk him out of his exit plan, Banky noted that he could tell Wizkid was ready to do other things.
