Nigerian Afropop singer, Reekado Banks has explained the reason why his song with Wizkid didn’t appear on his 2020 EP, “Off the Record“
Reekado Banks in an interview With F word Magazine was quizzed about his reason behind not including his song with Wizzy in his ‘Off the Record‘ EP.
According to him, he forgot about the song he had with Wizkid that accounted for the reason why he did not add it to his EP.
In his words: “Cos I forgot about it. I don’t know what that is man. But yeah, the Wizkid one I totally forgot about it already. And the Burna Boy one was… I don’t know that time, I thought it was going to be fun to, you know, get on and just vibe like everybody else was but obviously, he wasn’t having it and he made it clear. And now we’ve moved past that. And it’s just fine.”
The duo had at some point in October 2020 been involved in a debacle of sorts over the release date of a collaborative effort ‘Omo Olomo‘, which Reekado had announced the release in the heat of the #EndSARS protests that rocked major cities late last year.
Wizkid had called Reekado an animal in a tweet he later deleted. Wizkid had felt Reekado was being rather insensitive to social justice issues by wanting to drop music at a time of upheaval in the country.

Reekado had tweeted:
“Out of control, gbedu must drop. This one with my brother @wizkidayo “OMO OLOMO” midnight dropping Still on the matter !!! #EndSWAT #EndSARS #EndPoliceBrutality”
To which Wiz replied:
“Delete this dude ! Can’t believe you’re even doing this at a time like this. Old song ! #endsars fool!”.
