Samklef, the Nigerian singer-turned music producer, has resumed his rant over the alleged unclaimed royalties from Wizkid’s ‘Superstar’ album.
The musician, born Samuel Oguachuba, had earlier accused Banky W of not giving him his own share of royalties from Wizkid’s 2011 project.
But the ‘Strong Thing’ crooner had denied any involvement in the royalty split saga.
He also urged the record producer to reach out to Sony, ASCAP and BMI if he has any concerns about the album’s royalty.
“Someone should please explain to Samklef that my name is not and was not on this royalty split sheet that he is posting,” he had said.
In a twist on Tuesday, Samklef took the royalty rant to Wizkid.
The music producer claimed Banky W told him the ‘Ojuelegba’ singer was the one who removed his name as the composer for ‘Pakurumo’, a hit track off ‘Superstar’ album.
He added that he was told Wizkid is aware that he has not received his own share of royalties from the 2011 album.
Samklef called on Wizkid to instruct his lawyers to reach out to him and address the matter.
“Dear @wizkidayo remember we where brothers before anything @bankywellington say you comot my name from ‘Pakurumo’ publishing and also know about all my 11 years royalties. And na you give @sonymusic @sonymusicafrica,” he wrote on his Instagram page.
“Let’s fix this in peace. Him say make (I) pour my anger to you. I know you don’t read your DMS (direct messages) so I will like you to instruct your lawyers to reach out.”
Wizkid is yet to react to the matter — as of the time of this report.
