Banky W says he will have a secret wedding

Nigerian R&B Singer, Olubankole Wellington, known with the stage name as Banky W, has revealed that his wedding ceremony will be a secret compared to most celebrity weddings.

Banky W, one of Nigeria’s most eligible bachelors, who has been under pressure from fans to get married, finally responded in a series of posts on his Snapchat profile @bankywellington.

In reaction to the ‘Go and marry’ trolling from his fans, the singer said, “My whole life has been a show. Not making my marriage one too. If or when I do get married, no way I’m doing that huge Lagos wedding, never. Secret location, somewhere that needs like two Visas to get to. The world will find out after it has been said and done.”

    I really wonder why he thinks he has to listen to some ‘fans’ to get married. Thirsty hoes and jealous haters aplenty waiting for him to trip??

    But serzly, why is this news? Is Mr Capable gay? A cool voice and extra layer of mary kay don’t make anyone gay

      Perhaps its news on KD not because of anything to do with his sexuality, but because of the first part of your comment: the pressure from society to get married. Something I’m sure every Nigerian gay man can relate to.

        Well, he has 3 crashed celebrity marriages to look out for (that are even recent) to help him strengthen/weaken his resolve then. You rush into it, you will run outta it. Frankly, the same fans are even more vicious after a failed marriage. The weird part is they would blame western influence on our entertainment industry for that…just as they always do for just about anything that don’t play out d way dey like it

    But really, Banky shouldn’t pay these marriage trolls any mind. He should stick it out abeg and be the first Nigerian celebrity with no interest in marital union. I admire how he seems to be unaffected by the trolling of Nigerians. So he doesn’t want to goan marry, how e take affect your breakfast?

    But really, why would anyone want to remain unmarried if they are not gay in Nigeria – where the law does not permit them to get married, asexual, impotent or with any other secret/taboo condition or proclivities?

        I wasn’t. Would you still be averse to the idea of marriage if you weren’t gay? Hmmm. You wouldn’t know. You’re gay. I, for one, developed my beliefs about/against marriage because where I’m from, it’s illegal and practically impossible to get married to people of the sex I’m attracted to.

          Yes, Pjay, I happen to know exactly my feelings about marriage, gay or not. I have reasons for not wanting to get married, and being gay is just one of them. It’s incredible that you think people should only get a pass for not wanting to marry only when they’re either gay or have reproductive issues. In other words, you’re part of the society that would like to see every eligible person married of.
          You seriously need to work on that mentality. Sometimes, people gay or straight just don’t want to marry. Simple as that.

            If you weren’t so bent on helping me change my perceived inferior mentality, you’d have noticed that I began my comment with why and ended it with a question mark. Dear Pinky, I’m genuinely interested in the reasons why people do not want to get married. You don’t get a pass from me just by saying you don’t want to marry cos you don’t want to marry. No, you need to have a genuine reason. Any reason at all will do sef

              Besides, what constitutes a ‘genuine reason’? Who determines what’s genuine enough a reason or not for someone not wanting to get married?

      Pjay, people can choose to remain unmarried not for the reasons you mentioned but because it’s what they want. @Pinky, doubt he was kidding. It’s the default position of most Nigerians.

    Well, seeing as this is a gay blog and the entry has nothing gay attached to it, I owe it to myself to ‘gaylise’ it.
    BANKY W is getting secretly married, due to pressure from society as usual, because he is gay on the DL!
    They wee not leave a gay man to be in peace.

    OAN, I used to have a crush on him until I saw him without his fez cap.

    he is taking this thing too personal. Its just a thing with Nigerians generally. They do the same to Don Jazzy and he finds a way to laff over it.

    Its not that serious bro. If u act as if it bothers u those fans will continue harping on it.

    marriage is a choice and really, aside sexuality and reproductive and religious issues there are lots of people both male and female who don’t want to get married for no other reason than they just don’t want to get married. I wish the nigerian public would learn to mind their business and let people live their lives the way they choose.
