Industry News: Banky W’s Political Aspirations Expand, Interviews Lagos State Governor, Fashola

Nigerian artist 9ice has made it clear he intends to go into Politics. His first step, according to him, is to obtain a degree in Public Administration, which he is currently pursuing, then gain admission into law school. Awesome for 9ice! However, 9ice is NOT the only one with political aspirations. While EME’s Banky W has not been explicit about running for any political office, I believe the writing is clear on the wall.

From his vocal stance(s) on socio-political issues, his participation in protesting for the rights of issues that affect the common man (#OccupyNigeria protests in Lagos and New York), his election as one of COSON’s officers and his latest interview with Governor Fashola, among many things,  it is clear to me that it is only a matter of time.

Read his latest political inclined/related activities:

“Last week, the International Republican Institute (IRI) & US Agency for International Development (USAID) visited the Governor of Lagos with R & B Power House Banky W for a documentary hosted by Banky W.

Banky who is presently on set for MNET TV series “Jacob Cross” in South Africa tells us, “the documentary is about promoting democracy in Nigeria through the youths of Nigeria, and it included an interview with Governor Fashola, I had a nice time . .  .” has the full story and pictures.
