Ayoleyi Hanniel Solomon, Nigerian singer better known as Reekado Banks, has explained that he sacked Temi Solomon, his elder brother, as his manager, because his “vision became a lot farther”.
The talented songwriter was speaking during an interview with Cool FM.
He said he needed to get to somewhere else, and that informed his decision. Banks added that his decision does not in any way affect his relationship with his brother.
“It was just next level dealings, I wanted to get somewhere else, the vision became a lot farther, like I saw farther than I used to see and I just needed somebody that’ll see as much, most especially someone that’s been there with other people (artists) but me and my brother are cool,” he said.
When asked if Temi, who has managed him since the beginning of his career, is still a part of his team in any capacity, he answered in the negative, saying that not at the moment.
The 25-year-old singer is now managed by Twenty20 media led by Kamal Ajiboye, Davido’s former manager.
Banks joined Mavin Records in 2014 and left four years later in 2018.
His record deal with Mavin Records came as a result of his brother submitting some of his songs to the label in an online talent search.
In July, Banks was a victim of a prank phone call that went wrong during a live interview.
