I Struggled With Promiscuity And Pornography Years Back – Banky W


Famous Singer, Olubankole Wellington, better known as Banky W, has opened up on his struggles with pornography and promiscuity many years ago. Banky W who is now a pastor and politician, made the revelation during an interview with The Visibility Lunch Hour recently. While stressing on the importance of a relationship with God in a person's life, Banky said “There is an emptiness you feel when you are disconnected from that source.”

“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 meaning thing, not about money. That is why you see some of these billionaires pass away on their own account,” Banky concluded.
