Banky W’s New Music Video “Running After U” is a Celebration of Married Life | Features Osas & Gbenro Ajibade, Toolz & Tunde Demuren



Banky W has got a new song and music video, titled Running After U, and he’s featuring Nonso Amadi.

Talking about the song, he says:

Do you ever think about the fact that there aren’t too many celebrations of Married life on Music Television? There’s a lot of hooking up and twerking, there’s a lot of consummating and flirting, and there are a whole lot of proposals-and-wedding day music videos… but there aren’t too many celebrations of the married life that comes afterward.

In the “Running After U” song, I tried to tell the story of how my wife and I got together. And so 24 hours before we shot the video, I decided I wanted to use the video to celebrate the journey of marriage. And so I drastically altered the original casting plans last minute, and called up all my married friends who were in town, to come hang out on set, have some fun together, and celebrate the decision to attempt this thing called life together.

The journey of marriage isn’t always easy, but with the right person, every step ends up worth it. If there’s one thought I’d like for people to take away, it’s that… Nobody’s perfect, but you can be perfect for each other – you just have to find someone worth trying for. Run after her, then run with her, until you conquer “forever” together. And while you attempt to do this, don’t forget to have some fun.

Without further ado (read this part in a-Banky-W-the-host-with-the-most-type-of-voice) Ladies and Gentlemen!! Featuring the incredibly gifted Nonso Amadi (that boy is a genius)!!! Starring some of my amazing friends!!! (…who were kind enough and available in the country at the last minute to bless us with the most amaaaazing cameos!!) Special shoutout to Osas & Gbenro, Captain & Toolz, Egbon Steve & Yetunde, Noble & Chioma, Aurelien & Tosyn, Papi J & Kaffy, Ik & Olo!!!

Special shoutout to the rest of my friends who really wanted to be there but couldn’t make it!!

    Beautiful video. I haven’t heard the word shawty since middle school. Everybody and their mama used that word. It sounds weird now.
    Osas is One of my girl crush. Her and Gbenro look like they get it on real good in the bedroom. FIreworks and what not lol
    Toolz is cute, her man dropping those pounds. I pray his health is fine though.
    BANky, good job for celebrating marriage itself.

    Felt odd not to see Banky’s wife there, in a video by her husband celebrating marriage, especially since every other couple was complete.
    I understand they don’t want to overdo it and star together in every video, but surely, it was necessary here.
    Loved the video though.
    Is Nonso single????
