#MCM alert! 10 reasons why we love Banky W!


See, let me tell you ehn, I always had Banky W down as just a flashy Lagos Boy. Fine, fine! I’ll say it! I had him completely pegged as a #YorubaDemon. He has the full armour, after all. But it is so great to be able to come out and admit that we fancy the pants off Banky W (if there is a God, from our lips to Your ears, oh Lord!), and we have several good reasons why.

1. Banky was #TeamBeardGang before it was even popular:

Fine, it was a teddy, but baby boy was rocking that!

2. He’s certainly not short of a few quid.

3. He is so friendly, polite and down-to-earth, you actually start to believe there is a chance you totally could be his girlfriend. Not to mention a fab sense of humour!


4. Not even being funny, his crooning will make you off pint. His voice is like warm caramel.

5. His friends list consists of some of the most influential and trendy people in Nigeria.



6. He looks as good in trad as he does in Western clothing:

7. He loves his mama!

8. His squad game is STROOOOOOOOOOONG!

9. He is not just a pretty face. This tweet and subsequent Instagram post in response to an ignoramus on Twitter talking about ISIS and Islam secured his place in our hearts for good.


10. He is socially conscious and raises awareness for worthy causes.


Seriously, what’s not to like?? Banky W for the win! BankyW as #MCM
