EME boss and talented singer Banky W no doubt symbolizes the new-look Nigerian entertainment industry and I bet many of us would quickly conclude that having been the cynosure of all eyes for the past five years, Banky W’s life is an open book.
However, it might interest you to know that the ‘Lagos Party’ crooner has had his fair share of misfortunes, some of which were revealed in the new edition of Y! Magazine.
In the cover interview of the latest issue, Banky W speaks exclusively and candidly about his battle against cancer, his activism, and entrepreneurship in Nigeria.
“When I was about to be operated on by a doctor, he cancelled while I was right there on the operating table, because he was nervous about how far it had spread and if he was expert enough to deal with it,” Banky W recalls his experience in the cover story.
“I think that’s when it set in on how serious it was, because we then had to go from one referral to another trying to find the specialist who could operate on this particular strain of cancerous tumours. It was arguably the scariest time of my life.” He explains.
Banky W , Wizkid and Skales are currently on a musical tour in the US.
