At the time, Wizkid did not attend either of the celebrations in Lagos and Cape Town, leading many fans to suggest there was a beef between them. Some even went as far as calling Wizkid “an ingrate” who no longer respected Banky W.
The singer, songwriter and now political office candidate thinks the criticism was unfair on Wizkid.
In a recent interview with This Day, Banky W said, “I think people unfairly judged Wiz and a lot of them were a little bit too harsh on him for missing my wedding. Many people forget that around the time of my traditional wedding was also when One Africa Music Fest was going on in Dubai. So, there were many other artistes at the event, who were struggling, trying to make it back to catch up with the wedding.”
He also added that many of their friends missed it as well and there was no bad blood from the couple to any of them. “In fact, Tiwa Savage had to take the last available economy seat in the plane, even though she had an upper-class ticket for a few days later, just to get her back in time for my wedding. So, it wasn’t just Wizkid that missed it, a lot of people who were at the concert did. Either way, people should know that the relationship between Wizkid and I is deeper than any fame or fortune. Wizkid is my younger brother, he has been for a very long time and that is never going to change.
“We love each other and that’s my brother for life. And honestly, the same goes for Skales, Xclusive, Niyola, Shaydee, MasterKraft , Suka Sounds, Timothy King etc. Everyone we worked with at EME during the early years. There’s a bond between us all, it’s a family affair. No matter what happens, family remains family. Family first, family forever.”
The #BAADWedding as it was tagged, was the wedding of the year as it sparked enormous interest from fans of the couple. Being married still makes Banky happy as he added:
“The highlight of my marriage so far… honestly, it has been the entire journey and the entire experience. It’s very important for this generation to understand that it’s okay to wait. Before now, one of the most frequently asked questions during my interviews was when would I get married and I’m glad I didn’t give in to that pressure. I’m so glad that I waited because now I’ve found not just a wife but someone that is my purpose partner, someone that we can build our destinies together.”
