For the first time after almost six months of an alleged cold war between Banky W, owner of Empire Mates Entertainment and his biggest star, Wizkid, it was a pleasing sight for many to see both showing each other so much love as it was in the beginning.
The two were brought together by mobile telephone giant, Samsung, during the ‘Design for Life Fashion Show’ to launch the brand’s Galaxy S4 recently at the Oriental Hotel in Lagos.
P.M.NEWS Showbiz Trends learnt that Wizkid had sneaked into the hall midway into the show and took a sit right next to his boss, Banky W. As if that was not enough to show that there is real love in the EME family, while Banky was on stage, he gave a shout out to Wizkid and invited him on stage to do a couple of his songs.
Banky revealed to the crowd that Wizkid was not paid to perform at the show but was doing so as a favour to him. They both lit up the stage performing Roll It, and left the fans craving for more.
Style and couture were the stand-out features of the Samsung Galaxy S4 launch. It kicked off with a fashion show specially organised by Samsung to celebrate young designers, the event highlighted the distinctive qualities of the phone while the crème de la crème of the entertainment industry laughed for several hours in the company of compere Seyi Law.
