Banky W is like the big brother I never had......I don’t want to tie any girl’s name on me........Wizkid

The multiple award winning, musician covered Vanguard Allure for the second time (check out his first cover for the mag here) where he granted them an interview.
He talks about everything you want to know; from whom he feels are his biggest contenders in the music business, to his relationship with Banky W. He also revealed why he would never ink a girl’s name on his body. Excerpts........

On his relationship with Banky W……..
He played a very important role in my career. I will always be thankful to him because, at the time, a lot of people wanted to sign me on. When I met Banky and we had a conversation, I realized that he is some one that understands my vision. He was like a big brother to me. It was not just business. He was interested in what is happening to me. It was more like a family thing. He was like the big brother I never had.

On who he feels are his biggest rivals in the industry…..
To me, I would say in Africa, I don’t see anybody; to be honest. It is not like I don’t recognise what everyone does. I respect what they do but I am still making good music. I am making money and I have been doing shows like since January.

I am probably the

more after the jump

 busiest artiste. I don’t see anyone that is as busy as I am. I am not just trying to feel like I am too big; I am just stating the fact. So I don’t think of anyone as competition. I think, if we come together we can make it bigger but sometimes, you just have to stay by yourself.

On gist that he is having issues with other artistes…….
Everyone of them have issues with me. I don’t know why; maybe because I am the one on top, that is why they want to throw shots at me. I don’t understand; but to me, I just advise every young artiste doing their thing to face their music and do their thing. This is what I do.

I don’t pay attention to anybody, to anything. I just do music. I don’t care about what you are eating because it is none of my business. I care about what is on my plate and what is on the plate of my family. That is what is very important and how many people I can help. That is what is important; that is what I care about.

If you don’t want to talk to me, it is cool; you don’t have to. In life, not everyone has to like you. That is how I understand life. The most important thing is to pay attention to yourself. Life is too short.

On his tatts……. 
I just have a couple of them. They say a lot. I have a lion heart because I take a lot of decisions; not a lot of young people can make decisions that I make and a lot of people look at me and say I am crazy. Like, when I dropped out of school, a lot of people abused me; that because of “this small money”, you are making (all manner decisions) and things like that. But that small money that I was making is big money now. I have gone from being with EME to having my own label.

I have a tatt of Fela on me. That is how much I love Fela. I have my mum’s name, my sister’s name on me. I don’t have girl’s name because, I don’t think I want to tie any girl’s name on me. You never know.

On when his new album will drop……. 

I have an album I am working on; apart from the one I dropped. I have the one I am dropping in September this year. I am actually working on two albums. I actually dropped one last September but it still feels like it was done this year because the music is everywhere.
