First and foremost I want to wish you a prosperous 2013 and my apologies for the break. I’ve had alot on my plate and needed some time off to reassess some things in my life.
I’m glad to inform you that your boy is back!!!!!
For those who don’t know there have been rumours that Wizkid (aka Star boy Weezy) has left his record label Empire Mates Entertainment (EME). The label who is represented publicly by Banky W has not issued any reply to confirm or debunk this piece of gist. All we can do is wait and watch and for those of you with lives forget it ever happen.
I would like to put forward a theory concerning the conflict.
I am going to say that it was eventually going to happen!!!
Ask me why?
*waits for response*
I put it to you that since Banky W is an ambassador for Coca-cola and Wizkid is one for Pepsi there is no way that the bad blood between the 2 brands would not flow into their relationship! 😀
I’m Just kidding….no Efa… 😀
Seriously though its interesting how two members of TeamEME represented 2 brands that have had the biggest rivalry in history of modern marketing and now those 2 members are in conflict. Personally I think its a conflict of interest and if it was the USA, EME would not have gotten both deals from Coke and Pepsi.
Let’s take a quick look at the beef (no burger….my punchlines are too hard!!! :D) between Coke and Pepsi.
Coca-Cola was born in 1886 (about the same time Arsene Wenger started coaching Arsenal :D) and was ranked as the most valuable brand of 2012 (for more info check HERE) Coke was initially marketed as medication and was said to cure headaches and impotence (LMHOOOO). Today its marketed solely as a soft drink and is sold in every country in the world except Cuba and North Korea.
Pepsi, very much like Wizkid, is the younger brand and was born in 1893 under the name Brad’s drink but was renamed to Pepsi-cola in 1898 and finally Pepsi in 1961. And very much like Wizkid its likely there would have been little opportunity for Pepsi to shine if Coke had not created the market. On 3 different occasions Coca-cola had the chance to buy Pepsi but declined, little did they know the company would come back and bite them where the sun doesn’t shine. The Pepsi brand is known for celebrity endorsements and has used people such as Michael Jackson, MC hammer, Spice girls, Snoop dog (or is it Lion..) and most recently iyawo Baba Blue… Beyonce (did you guys see the super bowl half time show?).
The conflict between the two brands has raged over the years but one of the most memorable points of the conflict was called the PEPSI CHALLENGE.
It was very simple: they blindfolded people and had them taste coke and pepsi and asked them which one tasted better.
Guess which brand won?
We know for a fact that these two brands will never make peace let’s just hope this is not the case for the 2 members of EME.
So who do you think will come out better if they part ways Banky W or Wizkid?
