Nigerian actor and singer Banky W have explained why he named Wizkid a superstar before he emerged to be one of the biggest names in the Nigerian music firm currently.
He made this revelation while speaking during a radio interview shared on Instagram where he outlined that he named Wizkid’s debut album ‘Superstar’ so he could be viewed as a professional singer even at his undertaking.
In his words, he said:
“I am proud of what Wizkid is doing. I named his first album, ‘Superstar’, because that is what I wanted people to refer to him as, not as an up-and-coming act that he was back then.’’
“That is why it is good to invest in people. We played a small part in their beginning but look at what he (Wizkid) is now doing for others. As an artiste, it is important to find one’s voice.”
“One can adopt anything from anyone but one should be the best version that one can be. That is what has been working for me.”
