The singer said he didn't stop there as the band grew bigger with about 27 people in it; therefore, the need to increase his band boys' cut to meet the earnings, he claimed he changed the sharing formula again to 60-40 with him taking the smaller part.

""Of all my band men, only that Ayankunle is the one who complained the most, that's why he had left the band and returned many times before 2022. I love myself, I love my band. When I would borrow money to keep my band going who knows that? If I should say what I know about those complaining about me, they will run for cover."

He stated that payments were made every Monday with cash, and later, he told all of his band members to open an account so their wages would be paid into their bank accounts. And because of this, his music organisation's transactions with all his band members are traceable.

"I stopped paying my bandmen cash when I noticed they spend money recklessly and even run into debt. We were at our usual weekly meeting one day when I called my Zenith and GTB bank officers to come open accounts for them since most of them claimed they don't have one. And since then all payments have been through their bank accounts. We have a welfare officer who is responsible for the payments. he handles the company's accounts.

To buttress Kwam1's point, the band's welfare officer who was present noted that the last payment made into Ayankunle's account in March 2022 was over N130,000
