Samklef, a veteran Nigerian record producer and vocalist, has accused prominent artist and music entrepreneur Banky W of spearheading the cancel culture in the Nigerian music industry.
He also claimed that Banky W remained mute on cries for justice for late rapper Mohbad, who purportedly died as a result of bullying by his old record company, Marlian Music, because the EME head persecuted his former signees.
On Tuesday, Samklef made the charges via his verified X handle.
He said he has forgiven Banky W but decided to speak up so others can learn.
He wrote, “Banky W, the individual who initiated my personal cancel culture in 2012 with one of his friends in Soundcity…He is now a pastor lol.
“Fellow artists, it’s time to share your genuine experiences! Don’t hesitate! The reason many of them remain quiet about this matter is that they are aware of their own involvement. They were not just violent like Naira Marley!
“I have forgiven but I will still tell my story so that other people can learn.”
