Just hours ago Nigerian singer, rapper and actor Banky W has dropped his first single of 2017 “Blessing Me”
Classy, suave and velvet-voiced, Banky W latest music video was brought on by a fire incident at his house but instead of complaining, he decided to give praise for all the blessings in his life. Check out the video below and see what Banky had to say about the inspiration behind the track Words: Bianca Agenbag
“As you all probably know, I had a fire incident in my house last week that was a little bit scary at the time, but instead of focusing on that fear or on the damage, I choose to celebrate that God has once again saved my life, and made me victorious over death and unfortunate circumstances. I’m celebrating life and counting my blessings… knowing that the challenges I face are pale in comparison to the greatness that’s in store for me by God’s grace. So this song is as much for anyone that’s going through tough times, as it is for those that have already overcome them. “
“In the video, you see me rising from nothing to something… starting out as a worker in a mechanic/hardware shop; while praising and thanking God, our clothes get nicer, our surroundings get better, my car gets upgraded, etc. And then at the end, you see that my entire story is actually in someone else’s mind as he reads about me in the magazine…. because he’s imagining the whole story of my own rise, and it’s actually serving as inspiration for him as he’s also starting from his own “nothing” hoping to make it into something. And he knows that if he does the same as I did… i.e. work hard, while thanking and praising God for his blessings, he too can follow the same path and rise from nothing to something.”
