An old video of Nigerian renowned singer and politician, Bankole Wellington popularly known as Banky W describing Wizkid as a superstar has resurfaced.

The singer in an interview, gave reasons why he signed the artiste onto his record label, Banky W's Empire Mates Entertainment (EME) in 2009.

According to Banky W, he saw an X factor in Wizkid and always knew from the moment he met him that, he would be a superstar.

“You know they say some people have that star factor, the Xfactor, just that thing you can’t put a finger on, but everybody who has been successful has always had it.

I can honestly say that the minute I met him in person even before we still put him through the process or bring more music, but at that very moment I knew he was going to be a superstar so yes he is a superstar,” Banky W said.
