Romance…Yes/No? What’s Up with Music Superstar Banky W & Ghanaian hottie Andrea Manuela Giaccaglia?



We have seen these 2 for a while now. Each time, skillfully avoiding being photographed together. Anyone who follows Nigerian superstar Banky W on Instagram will know that he is not afraid to be photographed with the ladies so why the “low key” behaviour here?

Who is the mysterious lady we’ve spotted with Banky W lately? She is Ghanaian hottie Andrea Manuela Giaccaglia. Andrea is a marketing executive and is the head of Corporate Communication for Del-York in Ghana.

A source tells BN “Banky and Andrea have been seeing each other for a while, they have kept it on the low because it was casual at first but now fingers crossed because they are good together“. BN spotted the very good looking duo at Tiwa Savage‘s album listening party, they looked extremely close as they came in together and spent the event next to each other.

Banky W (1)We also spotted them together at the AMVCAs trying extra hard not to be photographed together.

Check out Andrea at Banky’s album launch R&BW: The Grand Love Project event.


We are loving Banky and Andrea together! What are your thoughts?

"What do you really do for a living any way?", "Your face looks familiar. Was it on TV?" These questions follow me around everyday. Why don't you join them. Instagram | Twitter: @Onos_

      Oh yeah! I’ve always known it was a matter of time before Nigerian men begin to go after Ghanaian ladies!
      Truth be told Ghanaian ladies are hotter, well spoken & classier, just like Nigerian men are!

      Says who? Bet you are ghanian. Haha,you lie.Now, let the twists begin. Iam sure if it was Ghanian men vs naija ladies, you will say naija men are not classy, that is why,the women are goingfor ghanianmen Trying to save face huh?. If i were you, i would be bothered as to why the finest of your womwn only go for naija men. Yvonne nelson, check, nadia B, check.Notthat naija womwn are complaining,trust me we have enough men to go around.

      Please if you don’t have anything sensible to say then keep quiet! Being classy has absolutely nothing to do with your nationality. Nigerian women are equally attractive, classier and very well-spoken! that’s a well-known fact all over.

      Truth be told… all the Nigerian men want is “their waist”.
      Sweetie they’d still end up with Nigerian girls.

    Kai, Atoke… I really wanted this to work out for you so that I could have forced myself unto your guestlist by claiming “I was there when it all started”. No mind this Banky of a somebori, he’s not worthy of your fantabulous, amazing self.

  15. Bunmi

    May 27, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    Ghanaian babes like Nigerian men sha. Nigerian men have more personality and are smooth talkers so I guess. She is definitely Banky’s type. Light skinned, pretty, and petite. I will ignore that hair in the last pic.

    She’s just alright to me. The girl he’s dancing with in the kente scarf is much prettier in my opinion.

    • Ready

      May 27, 2013 at 3:17 pm

      Boo…people don’t date people just because of looks. Maybe she just really gets him and he’s comfortable with her?

    • Teddy Bear

      May 28, 2013 at 1:45 pm

      Sure. That’s plausible. I still think the girl with the kente scarf is prettier.

      I think she’s only saying cos of all the attention drawn to the Andrea lady..funny enough, i share her thoughts 🙂

    Haahahaaaha @Cutiepie blaming an iPad for her poor diction, spelling errors and grammatical mistakes. Sweetheart, if you were using an iPad, it would have at least auto corrected the word Ghanaian for you!
    As to your comment; you claim Nigerian women have enough men to go around. So why your rant about Ghanaian women chasing Nigerian men?! It’s even hilarious that you think Ghanaian women chase your men! We don’t! Your men FLOCK to us in droves!

    Instead of you and the other commenters coming for @Posh’s head for the remark she made, why don’t you use that time and energy to figure out what you Nigerian women are doing, that has your men crossing borders to come and find love in the arms of us Ghanaian women!

    • Iyanmaaaa!!

      The way you people keep attacking Nigeria really amazes me,like really the issue now that Nigerian guys date Ghanaian girls cos of whatever,okay clap for yourself,you have achieved something major,congratulations.

    May 27, 2013 at 6:06 pm

    Haa, you Bella Naija people ehnnnn,after that man responded to your very long love letter and took you to “Lonsh” —>(Lunch), you people are now kobalizing him n decoding things ehhh…..#YouSeeYourLifeOutside

    But Why is she tailing behind “Captain” ?? —-
    Let ” Toolz” not catch your skinny Ghanian yansh lurking behind her man
    I kid-I Kid

    They make a fine couple..She has a bit resemblance to his mom–maybe its just d light skin

  22. Bebe

    May 27, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    She’s bi-racial abi mixed, with long hair and a pretty face. Of course she’s winning because Nigerian men are very superficial and like thier women a certain way. To these Ghana Ninjas making noise, apart from Nadia Buari who is also light skinned abi mixed with long hair and a pretty face, which other girls are winning in your country? Oh yeah, Yvonne Nelson but her case is special because she’s gorgeous.

    Anyway yeah Banky needs to settle down so good luck to him.

    yes there are beautiful ghanian babes, but truth be told, the most attractive ones are usually of mixed blood, whether european or other african mixtures. now do we really care who is hotter no… infact ghanana has abt 8.7 million females, while naija has 10 to 13times the amount… we dont care, let banky date whom ever he likes, as long as the love is true and they treat eachother with respect and love, then what we say should not matter. We all know that a man who findeth a wife, findeth a good thing and that is what we should wish our fav celebs. We might wish to have them to ourselves but the fact is they are here to entertain us, not to appease our fantasies . I truly hope they are together, they deserve to truly find that love which is true.

    Kudos to @Binta. The rest of y’ll really got time to be hating – why? Does it really matter where Banky ends up, for as long as he is happy and content. Na wa o. Do we really need to say which country is better, what if he had ended up with a Kenya, Tanzanian, or South African, Malawian babe, then what? You people have time o. Abeg, love is love where ever he lay his head down may it be peaceful, Please stop spawning hatred between countries! are we not all africans with good and bad traits for each country. MScheewwww. Banky be happy my dear where ever you are!

    She ‘s pretty but why does she look cold in dem pics. In the 2nd and 3rd pic, people around dem are dancing even Banky looks like he’s enjoying himself – d man is sweating but the girls is just standing dere like his bodyguard. I understand that they are trying to be private ( that is if they are dating), but that does not mean you can’t dance with your man.

      We haven’t even seen a picture of them “together”. I’m more likely to guess she’s with Demuren than Banky! This one is a questionable gist o Onos.
