Nigerian Music star, Olubankole Wellington, a.k.a Banky W, says his nine-year-old Range Rover Sports will be auctioned for charity.
The car had been a subject of ridicule when two ladies released a video `dragging and stalking’ Banky on social media for driving an old car in spite of his class and status.
The music star and actor disclosed this in a video posted on his Instagram page, stating that the car had served him for nine years and it was time to let it go for charity course.
He said that the money would be donated to “Vocational School for the Blind” in Oshodi, Lagos and the “Pink Oak Cancer Trust Fund”.
Banky W further explained that the car would be auctioned online with autograph of his celebrity friends to enable him raise funds to support his aunt, who works as a volunteer in the school.
He started singing at a young age in the church choir and started his record label E.M.E in 2002 while still studying.
After moving to Nigeria in 2009, he established the label in Lagos.
Banky W has signed artists like Niyola, Shaydee, Skales, and Wizkid to the label at the time.
His breakthrough debut studio album, Back in the Building was released in 2005.
