Many colleagues of Banky W in the entertainment industry have openly embraced the singer’s ambition to join politics and contest for a political office in 2019.
On Sunday, Banky W officially announced his candidacy for Eti Osa Federal Constituency in the Federal House.
Somehow Nigerian rapper MI Abaga gives a strong opinion in support of Banky’s ambition. The singer was also present at his unveiling at the MDP congress.
In his words MI stated that it’s a ‘win or learn’ situation for Banky W for having courage to stake his music career for what he believes in. The Choc City boss reaffirmed he is strongly behind him.
His full statement below;
To me.. this story is about courage.. @bankywellington and @adesuaetomi courage to be the ignition for change. This seat Banky is running for is fiercely contested by a few very qualified men.. I just know Banky has more to lose than any one else by doing this.. I stand with my friend for this election, against Party structures that dwarf his ambition, against a jaded constituency that have heard it all before, against a status quo that is as of yet undefeated!!!!! To say ‘win or learn.. victory is certain’.. and when we look back we will remember how Banky staked his career and business to take a stand.. on our behalf.
