Singer-turned-politician Olubankole Wellington popularly known as Bank W has revealed his wife Adesua Etomi initially didn’t like the idea of him venturing into politics.
The 37-year-old in an Instagram post on Monday said his wife warned him not to go into Nigerian politics as it is
“dirty” and “dangerous”.
“Some months ago I woke my wife up one morning and asked for her blessing to run for the House of Reps," he wrote. "Her immediate reaction was one of intense worry.
"She said ‘I know you’d do an incredible job in office, but politics in Nigeria is dirty and dangerous. And I don’t want anything to soil you, or to harm you’,” he disclosed.
Banky W is contesting the Eti Osa seat in the House of Representatives on the ticket of the Modern Democratic Party (MDP), a political party led by Prince Bukunyi Olateru-Olagbegi, a 27-year-old youth activist and entrepreneur.
