Banky W Lagos Party Bella Naija20139 They don’t call him Mr. Capable for nothing! Banky W has been showing his proverbial muscle over the last few weeks. Not only has his single “Strong Ting” been heating up the radio charts, the video for the song has been on the number 1 spot on SoundCity premium channel for two weeks running, Number 1 on Nigezie and the video also hit the coveted number 1 shot on MTV Base African countdown.

Now Mr. W is breaking even more new ground, on the 30th of October 2009 at the Lagoon Crest in Lekki, he shot the video for his hit single “Lagos Party”. The video was shot by Kemi Adetiba and featured an unprecedented mix of celebrities and media personalities including Omawumi, MI, Eldee, Matthew Mensah, Eunice Omole, Noble Igwe, Segun Demuren, L’Ami, Kel, Jesse Jagz, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Kaffy, Teju Babyface, 2Shotz and many others. Its great to see everyone coming out to support their colleague, Banky! Shows that despite all the random ‘beefs’; Kelly Hansome vs. Mo Hits; Terry G vs AY.com etc… there is still lots of love and camaraderie in the industry.
Here are some pictures from the shoot.
Banky W’s new album, The W Experience will be out soon!

    Hmm, Bella has anyone opened up any Alcoholics Anonymous NGO in Naija yet? I seriously believe one will be needed soon. Anyway, Banky is looking cute as usual, liked his Strong T’ing video I hope this turns out nice as well. Is it me or is MI gaining weight? He should watch the fat and booze because his type of physique is best with a trim body.

    Can’t wait to see the video. Looks like it’s gonna to be really hot, Banky is too fine, and he seems so down to earth and nice.. his last video was amazing, he should get loads of awards for it. I heard Lola Maja flew over to do the makeup.. I love her work!!

    Mens fashion is gay right now (especially in Jand where I guess a lot of these guys shop) and lots of straight men are wearing what fashion dictiates. It takes more than clothes these days to know who is gay, in the closet etc

    Looks like this video is going to be nice. Although the first thing I thought when I saw the pictures was the Elite Model isn’t very Nigerian-shaped :-). Still cute tho’

  34. Razz

    November 18, 2009 at 1:43 pm

    I hear Noble works for an ad agency and is also an artiste promoter for Banky and MI. That should make him hang around celebrities a lot i guess.
    If only some of these comments were made to seem like questions and not hating!
    Meanwhile, i agree with the Banky bowtie point. It should be knotted.
    Who’s the hottie in black beside Ebuka?

  35. diva

    November 18, 2009 at 2:29 pm

    naija female celebs should pls watch their weight. just look at kel. she looks so old already. i love her music. but pls pls pls n pls. i cant look at all ds fat. this is an industry that is obsessed with d way u look. finish

  36. Licious

    November 18, 2009 at 4:06 pm

  41. lols

    November 19, 2009 at 1:24 am

    You dont have to be straight or gay to know that self tie bows are used for this kinda pics
    most ppl in naija are fashion victims… its like the footless tights and leggings pandemic, they wer it with anything!!!! crazzy sturves men .. they need to be schooled 🙂

  42. lols

    November 19, 2009 at 1:28 am

    lets get this straight, ppl have better things to worry about that hating on his bow tie! theres a difference… they make tied bowties and self tie ones for a reason!!!!

    what’s with Ebuka these days???? Kel should watch her weight, we don’t want a female looking Wande coal o!(*wink wink*). Then BN it’s LAGOON crest not FALCON crest.

  49. adeola

    November 19, 2009 at 10:32 pm

    i think its very rude to comment about people’s sizes or weight !!! some people have issues with their weight , do not make it worse !!! what if igwe follows people around ? he aint standing on your head ……quit hating please !

  50. commy

    November 20, 2009 at 1:41 am

  51. PetiteandSweet

    November 24, 2009 at 2:05 pm

    HAHA.. Don’t know which Lola Maja you’re talking about Jimmy? This one lives in London & Maryland. I’m hoping to do training with her next year either here in the UK or when I come back home. Thanks Deji, I didn’t know it was the same team! I really liked the styling they’ve done with Kel. It looks like an Obsidian dress but i’m not sure. She has a gold hooded dress that kind of looks the same. Either way, can’t wait for the video, Banky’s one of my favourites!
