Ace Nigerian producer, Masterkraft has taken motivational speaker Oyemykke to the cleaners over his recent comment about Banky W.
Oyemykke had shared a video in which he alleged that a lot of Nigerian Afrobeat artistes lack loyalty, which is seen just after they become famous or rich. According to him, such act has stopped major investors from investing in young acts. He further mocked Banky W, saying after he claimed to be the baddest boss, his EME Empire crumbled after Wizkid left.
The single dropped by the former EME singers, Banky W, Wizkid & Skales titled “Baddest Boy” where we could over hear the EME boss Banky bragging to be the baddest boss, turned out to be a mock stunt for Oyemykke.
However reacting to the comment credited to Oyemykke, Masterkraft wrote;

This is not the first time Masterkraft has linked Banky W to his success story. Masterkraft mentioned in an interview how he was connected with the top R&B singer and after the first job, he promised to make him popular and he is glad that Banky W kept to his promise. He said:
“The turning point in my life came after I produced a song and they wanted to feature a rapper on it. They called MI and after he listened to it, he asked for the producer. He did not even believe that the song was produced in Nigeria. He later asked after me and when we met, he asked once more if I produced the song or copied it.
At that point, I had to open my computer and show him my files. Instantly, he called Banky W who called me immediately but I did not have his number, so I did not pick the call because they were recording and I did not want to disrupt the session.
A text message later came in stating that it was Banky W. It was an exciting moment for me and I remember that I ran out of the studio to the gate like four times just to get myself together and I called the number back.
To my surprise, it was Banky W and he was asking for the address of my studio with the promise of showing up the next day. True to his word, he came the next day, we sat down and he gave me an idea of the kind of song he wanted to release.
In less than 30 minutes, I had produced the song. Banky was so much in awe that he told me that he had been in the state for years and had never had that type of result or sound. He said that for what I had done, he would make sure my name was everywhere and I got the first and second slot on his album.
That was how I made it to his album. The next thing was that I saw myself in the newspapers and it was Banky W that made it happen. That was a major turning point in my life. Shortly after I worked for his record label, EME, and I was the vocal coach for Wizkid and Skales at the time.”
