Banky said the video for his new single might end up being his favourite.
Nigerian musician, actor and politician Banky W has hailed his wife Adesua Etomi for inspiring his latest single Jo. In a Beat FM interview with Simi Drey, Banky said he got inspiration for the song the first time his wife danced for him. He said it was a long time ago but he vowed to do a song about it.
Commenting on the video for the new single, the ‘Strong Thing’ crooner described it as lit and the best ever. On the song, he said: “It was written by myself and Maytronomy and I was inspired by the first time my wife danced for me. This is like you know, a few years ago.
“The first time we were in that kind of intimate moment and she danced for me. And I was like, wow! I have hit the jackpot. It was a different kind of dance but it was an inspiring moment for me. And I always said that I was gonna write something about it.’’
Banky tied the knot with Adesua in 2017 and he disclosed that he is having the best moments of his life with the Nollywood star. The pair welcomed their first child in 2021.
“Because, you know, we are married now, we are in our fourth year. And sometimes, you look around and marriage seems like something you have to endure rather than enjoy. And I’m trying to just kinda show people that it’s not like that. You know I’m having the best years of my life right now,” he insisted.
“So, “Jo” is a celebration of that. It’s a celebration of love, your partner, of dancing of couples, just all of that. And I’ve always wanted to do salsa or Latin flavoured video.
“You know it’s something I’d wanted to do for years but I just never really put it together. And I’m glad I never did. Because Susu and I in this video, whoosh! Where is the flame emojis, we need the flame emojis.
“I’ve done a lot of video in my life but this might be my favourite video ever. Because there’s so much flavour. It’s lit, it’s fully lit!”
