I still remember Banky W selling CDs out of the trunk of his car here in Yankee. The impossible is possible. Go after your dreams people and make it work! I like his discussion encouraging artists to make music that impacts the culture, not the trendy stuff and to also grow with your music. Good look Banky.
He does the PR clean up on the Wizkid brouhaha and he also does point out, truthfully, some of the fake stories that were floating about. From a style perspective, I prefer seeing Banky without the hat. Phew! A bit of change from the usual, as in fresh air.
“Banky W (Olubankole Wellington) a.k.a Mr Capable, a.k.a King of the Lagos party is one of Africa’s top R&B act. He is Chairman of Empire Mates Entertainment E.M.E. Home to top artist like Wizkid, Skales, Shaydee, Niyola and Dj Exclusive. His sweet soulful music is loved by many in the african continent. He is adored by the ladies and envied by a lot of men probably because he gets ladies attention with his looks and music. Banky gives us “The Juice” on his music, relationships, rumoured split with Wizkid and a inside look at what he could have done if he was not singing. Enjoy this rare open interview with Toolz as usual at the helms.”
