Reekado Banks: Why I discarded song with Wizkid

Reekado Banks: Why I discarded song with Wizkid

In 2020, Afrobeats superstar, Wizkid lambasted singer Reekado Banks for promoting a single they both recorded during the #EndSARS protest.


Wizkid called Reekado Banks, a ‘fool’.


Reekado Banks has said that he forgot about the song he recorded with Wizkid, which was meant to be on his EP, ‘Off The Record’.


The ‘Rora’ crooner made this known in a recent interview with F-word Magazine.


The singer noted that the decision to take the song off the EP was not his but that of his A&R.


It was a good thing. It was suggested by my A&R Marv. He suggested all the collabs on this EP that I’m dropping, aside the one with Wizkid. And I think that’s why it’s no more on the EP because he didn’t suggest it.”


When asked if the final cut had anything to do with the Twitter clash he had with the ‘Joro’ crooner, the Afro-beats star said:


“I forgot about it.”


At the time, Wizkid felt it wasn’t the right time to release songs due to the state of unrest in the country as is evident in his decision to postpone his highly anticipated album, Made In Lagos.


Reekado had shared a snippet on his social media page with the caption;


“Out of control, gbedu must drop.


”This one with my brother @wizkidayo “OMO OLOMO” midnight dropping.


”Still on the matter !!! #EndSWAT #EndSARS #EndPoliceBrutality,” Reekado Banks had tweeted at the time.


However, Wizkid shockingly blasted Reekado and told him the timing was not right.


Wizkid wrote;


“Delete this dude!


”Can’t believe you’re even doing this at a time like this.


”Old song! #endsars fool!”
