Singer and label boss, Bankole Wellington, aka Banky W, who has just dropped his first single in 2017, ‘Blessing me’, said on Tuesday that the song is a thanksgiving to God for his life.
The EME honcho who featured Kaffy and IMagneto dance crew in the video took to his Instagram page to reveal to his fans, the vision behind the song produced by Masterkraft.
“As you all probably know, I had a fire incident in my house last week that was a little bit scary at the time,” Banky W wrote on his Instagram page.
“But instead of focusing on that fear or on the damage and what was lost, I choose to celebrate the fact 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, 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 of the song which has been uploaded to Youtube, Banky W is seen in working as a mechanic and becoming successful with each passing frame.
“And then at the end, you see that my entire story and my rise from nothing to something, is actually in someone else’s mind as he reads about me in the magazine,” he said of the sequence.
“So that’s why you see the little vibrations/glitches as you’re watching us perform… 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.”
