I made more money this year –Reekado Banks

Published

on

Solomon Ayoleyi, better known as Reekado Banks, has reacted to reports that all the artistes signed on with Don Jazzy’s Mavin Records have been struggling to perform at highly-rated shows this year.

He told Sunday Scoop that people could certainly say whatever they like as they didn’t have access to his bank account.

He stated, “Every artiste should know how to quantify their success. This year has not ended, but I have made more money than I did last year or the previous year. It is just the perception of some people who think this year has not been good for Reekado. I’ve made more than double of what I made last year. So, if you think last year was good for Reekado, I can confidently tell you that this year is far better.

“I am sure Tiwa Savage would not say that this year hasn’t been a good one. She dropped hit songs and she is fully booked for December. I am fully booked for December too and the same thing applies to other artistes under Mavin. So, I don’t understand why people are comparing last year with this year.”

For Reekado, as long as he drops good music and gets shows, he is not disturbed by negative comments. He, however, admitted that controversies had made some artistes to be more relevant than others.

“Controversies, in a way, put you in the public eye. In showbiz, no matter how good you are, the controversial singers get more credit and awards. But I don’t quantify success with awards; it is far different from that.”
