Singing For Armed Robbers Was My Scariest Show I Ever Did - Banky-W Says (Read Full Story)


Nigerian Singer and filmmaker, Bankole Wellington,  popularly known as ‘Banky W’, has revealed how some armed robbers on Lagos Island, Lagos State,  asked him to entertain them after robbing him.

He laments this while Speaking at ‘Monday Night Live’, a programme hosted by a Veteran Gospel artiste, Tim Godfrey.

“Banky W” Said;
“I remembered one December 31 night ‘crossover’ service, I was on my way to the island after I dropped a friend. On getting back to my to friends, I stopped and alighted. The next thing I felt was a slap at my face, that was when i saw four armed robbers.
I wanted to give them my car. They slapped me once again, saying, ‘Who wants your car’? They told me to seat at the back seat of the car while they used my car to rob others. They took my money, jewellery, phone and cap away”.
“On our way going one of the armed robbers told his colleague, ‘Let us take him to Ajah and kill him.’ I started begging them not to kill me. I told them I am a singer. They then asked me to tell them the songs I had recorded.
That’s When I mentioned ‘Ebute Metta’ ‘Capable’ and others, the robbers expressed surprise saying, ‘So you are Mr Capable? You have to sing for us.’ That was the scariest free show I ever did in my life. I had to sing to armed robbers.”
