TOP NEWS | I was Adicted To Phonography Says Banky W

I was rich but felt empty, because I was addicted to phonography -Banky W.

Ace singer turned actor, Banky W, has revealed that there was a time in his life that he was addicted to promiscuity and watching pornography.

The singer who is also a pastor, while advising young people to accept Christ, in an interview with The Visibility Lunch Hour added that despite his success as a music star, he felt empty without Christ.

He said, “In the eyes of the world I was a successful artiste, but I still felt empty and wretched. There were things I was struggling with on a personal basis. Everything from promiscuity to pornography just, real things that people struggled with on a personal basis.
“It got to a stage where you feel you’re in bondage and so you’re just stuck in this place of feeling far from God, feeling separated from God. Feeling that I have made a little bit of money, but I’m still not happy.

“There is an emptiness you feel when you are disconnected from that source. It’s a purpose thing, not a pay thing. It’s a meaningful thing, not about money. That is why you see some of these billionaires pass away on their own account.”

Asides from a successful career in the Nigerian music industry, Banky W, is a talented actor as well. He has featured in blockbuster movies like The Return of Jenifa (2011), The Wedding Party (2016), The Wedding Party 2 (2017), Up North (2018) and Sugar Rush 2019.
