EME boss Banky W had a fun interview with Nigeria Tribune where he revealed he is his own barber. Lol. Can you believe this? Who would have guessed?
Read excerpts of the interview below.
Is Banky in a relationship?
Not at the moment.
Tell us something no one knows about you.
Iâ€™m not sure how many people know this, but I shave my head and shape my beard myself. Iâ€™m my own barber. Iâ€™ve been doing it for years. It started when I was in University and didnâ€™t have a lot of money, I learnt to maintain it myself so I didnâ€™t need to spend money on it every week. And now Iâ€™m good at it so Iâ€™m my own barber. I will probably open a barbershop at some point.
What differentiate you from other artist?
Iâ€™d like to think itâ€™s the totality of what I bring to the table, creatively and musically. There are better vocalists than me, for sure. But I not only sing.. I write, I rap, I produce, I entertainâ€¦ Iâ€™m a motivational speaker and philanthropist, I act and I direct. Itâ€™d be hard to line up a lot of people who are able to do everything that I doâ€¦ but of course, we give God the glory and the fans the thanks for letting me be myself.
Coming up at the 10th position of the Forbes rating, how did you feel?
I donâ€™t believe very much in such things. Letâ€™s be honest, the real wealthy people are the businessmen like Dangote and the politicians (some of whomgot there by looting Nigeria). Theyâ€™re the ones with real money. This entertainment business is too much hype. It is more fame than fortune. So Iâ€™m not thrilled to it and I donâ€™t think any of us should buy into it too much. Iâ€™d rather be wealthy and quiet than famous and broke.
That’s not all. Read more below..
What is your take when people speak bad about you and Wizkid?
Jesus Christ was perfect, and people still spoke bad about him to the point that they killed him. How much less you, or me or Wiz? People will always want to say all kinds of thingsâ€¦ and these days, people love bad news. And if you donâ€™t give them the bad news, they start to create false bad news just because itâ€™s more interesting. But there isnâ€™t much you can do about it. You just try to be the best person you can be, and keep it moving.
You like hats a lot, why?
I have stopped wearing them a lot because people make too much of a big deal about it; my last CD cover, I went without it, and I do that a lot more these days. However, I really do like hats, and I think they add to my styling and make me stand out from the crowd.
