A big birthday shout to the Man of the moment, Banky W.
Classy, suave and velvet-voiced, EME front man Olubankole Wellington aka Banky W is every inch the poster boy for Nigerian R&B music.
From the moment he burst into public consciousness in 2008 with the release of ‘Ebute Metta’, a remix of Rihanna’s then hugely popular ‘Umbrella’ which was received with a lot of criticism, Banky W has continued to prove his mettle as a singer, song-writer, EME records boss and today a music video director.
He stands as one of the most influential Nigerian artistes and eligible bachelors(that’s right ladies, he’s currently unattached and has no baby mamas running around yet).
Asides being an accomplished singer/songwriter and label boss, there are also many other sides to the ‘Yes/No’ crooner. We celebrate the A-list super star today as he turns 34 today.
