“It got to a stage where you feel you’re in bondage and so you’re just stuck in this place of feeling far from God, feeling separated from God. Feeling that I have made a little bit of money, but I’m still not happy.
Popular Ace singer turned actor, Banky W, has revealed that there was a time in his life that he was addicted to promiscuity and watching pornography.
The father of one who is married to Nollywood actress, Adesua Etomi-Wellington while advising young people to accept Christ, in an interview with The Visibility Lunch Hour added that despite his success as a music star, he felt empty without Christ.

“In the eyes of the world I was a successful artiste, but I still felt empty and wretched. There were things I was struggling with on a personal basis. Everything from promiscuity to pornography just, real things that people struggled with on a personal basis. “It got to a stage where you feel you’re in bondage and so you’re just stuck in this place of feeling far from God, feeling separated from God. Feeling that I have made a little bit of money, but I’m still not happy. “I’m grateful for the small success I have experienced in music, in film, in other ventures. But there is what I like to call a God-shaped void inside every man. Until you start to fill that void with God, you’ll find that you will come up short regardless of what success you have or how successful or happy you may seem in the eyes of the world. “There is an emptiness you feel when you are disconnected from that source. It’s a purpose thing, not a pay thing. It’s a meaningful thing, not about money. That is why you see some of these billionaires pass away on their own account.”
Asides from a successful career in the Nigerian music industry, Banky W, is a talented actor as well. He has featured in blockbuster movies like The Return of Jenifa (2011), The Wedding Party (2016), The Wedding Party 2 (2017), Up North (2018) and Sugar Rush 2019.
Away from Banky W, Sandra Iheuwa, a businesswoman, caused a sensation online a few days ago when she deleted her four-month-old husband, Steve Thompson’s surname off her social media handle. She also took the phrase “married to a boss” off of her bio.
After removing their images from one other’s Instagram pages, the pair also unfollowed each other.Many people were taken aback by this, considering their four-month-old marriage was set to end in August 2021.
Sandra moved out of their married house in Osapa-London in Lagos state last week, according to a source close to the marriage, over her husband’s alleged regular act of infidelity, which is generally unprotected.
