“Wizkid wasn’t fortunate enough to afford studio time, so he was a studio rat,”
"the music artist would hang around the studio hoping to see an engineer or a producer who will allow him to do record for just 15 -30 minutes".
These proceedings helped Wizkid alot, the type of song he writes today are rear, he is one of the fastest song writers I have ever seen. Wiz could just seat and listen to music and he will start freestyling a Melody which the whole world will love to listen to and also sing as well, Banky W said.
Empire Mates Entertainment (EME) owned by Banky W signed Wizkid in back 2009.
He said he has written a lot of songs but it takes time, whereas Wizkid could take 15 minutes to knock it out, due to the way he started.
Banky also made emphasis on young rising talents, says they should stick to their niche and improve so well to a point when they are been giving a little chance they could knock it out with a home goal.
