Shortly after he publicly declared his intentions to vie for a slot in National Assembly under the umbrella of People Democratic Party, Bankole Wellington AKA BankyW has been verbally attacked by his colleague in the entertainment industry, DJ Obi.
It is obvious DJ Obi isn’t really in favour of Banky W’s political ambition.
On that note, Obi via Instagram comment section called out BankyW, blasting him for being jacks of trade of trades.
“Anywhere breeze blow you dey there. Today pastor, tomorrow artist, next tomorrow politician. Next week deliverance ministry, next month new single on the way. ABEG! We need real politicians,” he wrote.
“This is not a popularity contest. We are serious about our country, Nigeria is on the verge of getting on the path of greatness, we need solid men that are willing to loose it all for this nation to work and work well. The work ahead is not for the weak hearts……No, be now I go talk #endsars.”
It did not end there as he went on to call the music star a ‘closet MF and disgusting.’
“Say all you want. This closet MF is still disgusting. It will all play out and I won’t be silent, I will be part of that call-out ALL DAY! Na me just won start am, the rest will join in later. WITH RECEIPTS!…..Politics abi? Make we play am. 😂😂😂,” he wrote.
It is not clear what the rift between Banky W and DJ Obi may be but one thing is almost certain there is more to it than meets the eye.
The music declared his intention to run for the house of representatives on Saturday, April 2, 2022.
Banky W first announced his decision to run for the house of representatives back in November 2018.
The news was largely received by both fans and industry colleagues.
He however lost the elections to Ibrahim Obanikoro of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
