Empire Mates Entertainment CEO/Founder, Nigerian R&B sensational, Oluwabankole Wellington, known popularly as Banky W, have come out to quash the claim that is currently gaining ground, of him putting up invitation to his wedding on sales.
According to the report, the wedding invitation ticket is being sold for a sum of N35,000 (Thirty-Five Thousand Naira). Taking to his social media page, the “Kololo” performer debunked the speculations.
“Lol so I hear there are “tickets to the wedding” on sale for 35k” – He wrote. “Anyone who believes that, there are some people very ready to sell u other things like ‘your bvn is blocked’ and ‘I have an Uncle who will dash you $5 mill usd if u wire just 500k.’ Good luck!”
Banky W proposed to his “Wedding Party” co-star, Adesua Etomi months-earlier and have gone on to perform her introduction ceremony.
In the other news, Banky W have successfully gone through the needful surgery for a skin cancer – one he’s glad to share his survival to the public.
“A wise man once said this: “Scars. A sign that you had been hurt. A sign that you had been healed” – He wrote on social media.
“I’m sharing these because they’re proof of what God has brought me through. And because somewhere out there, I know there’s someone who needs to hear this.
“For those who’ve been wondering why I’ve been away so long..I had my 3rd surgery on a rare strain of skin cancer tumours in my shoulder last month. The first 2 times were over 10 yrs ago, then it recently resurfaced. But this isn’t a sad story as much as it is a reminder, and a testimony.
“A reminder that you should never take life for granted. You only get 1 shot. Some people went to sleep and never woke up. Many others have lost the battle to cancer and other illnesses. Many are still fighting.
“You never know when your time will be up so don’t waste another minute. It’s also a testimony about the goodness of God. I think I had to go through this again to remember how merciful God is to me; Lord knows I don’t deserve it but He saves me time and again anyway. I keep saying I need to write a book. I really, really do.
“The past few weeks of recovery have been tough, but beautiful. I’m finally back on my feet, feeling stronger and ready to get back to life.
“I’m thankful for life, provision and healing. Please dont feel bad, or msg me with any worries.. God has done it, just thank Him for me.”
