Interview: Banky W Chats With Flytime TV – “My First Income From Music, I was Selling CDs Out of the Trunk of my Car for $5.00”

Banky W, artist and co-owner of EME records, sat down with FlyTime TV Nigeria owned by Cecil Hammond to talk about his career, health, relationships and EME records, among other things. One thing that stands out is his discussion on his hustle ten years ago. I still remember Banky W selling his CDs out of the trunk of his car. And in case you all forget, he says, “my first income from music, I was selling Cds out of the trunk of my car for $5.00.”

AML artists be prepared to work hard. If you think success comes easy, you need to get off the plane because you got it twisted.
