    I saw him (Banky W) on Saturday in a supermarket in Sandton city Johannesburg, he is very friendly guy, though i could not pronounce his name properly.

    I feel utmost sympathy for Nigerian youths, when democracy becomes a photo-op project.

      I was just about to talk about how ridiculous your comment is, but then I noticed your name “madman”, and then I thought, wow, that explains his comment, KMT!

      At least Bank W is doing something worthwhile with his time, and actually actively trying to contribute to the improvement of the situation in Nigeria. Photo-op indeed! *SMHKAMT*

    my comment is not ridiculous. I know BankyW and he is a fraud. He lacks integrity and credibility but I hope when he finally gets elected, he will punish you Nigerians like Jonathan is doing to you all now. Rubbish!!!

    what exactly have made Banky W credible? What has he done exactly except sing songs about Women? Thats a big problem in Nigeria – Nigerians have no guage nor do they ask the right questions on credibility — you just accept everyone e because they are RICH or because they are celebrities. Word of advice, learn to hold people accountable for their actions.

      All these your attacks, I wonder. Banky W seems to be making his money through entertainment (not 419 or politics). From what I’ve heard, he has an engineering degree (so he’s probably not an imbecile).
      In fact, you’re a true ‘madman’. You want us to join your rally against Banky, when we don’t even know what you’re talking about. CORRECT ONYE ARA.

      Nigerians can be seriously hateful creatures… DID IT NOT OCCUR TO YOU THAT WITH A NAME LIKE “VOKA”, THE COMMENTER MAY NOT BE NIGERIAN AND THEREFORE HAS A PROBLEM WITH PRONOUNCING BANKY’S NAME PROPERLY?????????

      Arrgghh, you’ve driven me to use caps but please get rid of the spite in you, it’s debilitating….

    Hian! Madman, what must he do to prove his credibility? Fight lions? Provide electricity? As a citizen, one’s duty is to contribute to the nation’s progress in ways that they know how to. Banky wrote a widely read articulate response to Reuben Abati’s condemnation of Nigerian youth…this to me shows that he’s politically aware & willing to step up. The man didn’t say he’s running for a political position, he’s merely doing something similar to what D’banj woefully failed at…which is ask questions on behalf of us.
    He sings about women–beautifully, might I add. That’s his profession. But he also sang on one of the soundtracks for the World Cup, was on the soundtrack for Shuga (which has a strong societal message), ati bee bee lo.
    The morale of my story is Banky W does what he does and does it well (he should tell Skales to stop getting fat sha). That doesn’t mean he lacks credibility to ask political questions. Entertainment and politics are not mutually exclusive..props to USAID, Fashola, and Banky. Love him…not the head though 🙂
