Barely one day after his grand traditional wedding, ‘monitoring spirit’ Nigerians have dug into the 2016 archives of popular Nigerian singer, Banky W, where he ‘vowed’ never to do a huge Lagos wedding. When they say the Internet never forgets, this is indeed a proven instance. Banky W’s 2016 posts.
Does it mean the singer does not keep to his words? Lol. Indeed, it’s always easier said than done, that’s the reason they say always think it through before you say it.
Banky W’s 2016 posts
Yesterday, November 19, 2017, was lit beyond lit and so lavish, with many celebrities gracing the traditional wedding ceremony between Banky W and his beautiful actress bride, Adesua Etomi. The wedding went down in Victoria Island, Lagos.
Well, the thing now is, around mid last year, Banky W in a chat with HFTV revealed he felt no undue pressure to be married simply because everyone else is, he also maintained that he would keep the identity of his partner hidden till the wedding day.
Here’s what he said: “Until I walk down the aisle with somebody, I’m never going to talk about somebody that I’ve been with. I don’t think it’s fair to the person because you open that person up. Me, I can take the criticism and the comments on the internet and all of that stuff but somebody else that isn’t in that limelight doesn’t necessarily ask for that kind of criticism and backlash and slander and all of that and it’s tough to take for somebody that is not used to it so I don’t think it’s fair.”
Then in August 2016, Banky W, who had been under pressure from fans to get married, responded in a series of posts on his Snapchat profile @bankywellington, that he would never have a big wedding, as small weddings are the best. He said he would just invite his closest friends and family to grace the event. Fans had called him out to ‘Go And Marry’.

“Small weddings are the bessst. Just family and closest friends.
