Nigerian singer, Banky W, real name Bankole Wellington, has recalled how some armed robbers who attacked him asked him to sing for them after they robbed him.
According to the ‘High Notes’ singer, he was on his way to Lagos Island when he was attacked by some armed robbers who slapped him on the face before robbing him.
I recall that after a certain December 31 night ‘crossover’ service, I was on my way to the island after dropping a friend. On getting to where my friends were, I stopped and alighted. The next thing I felt was a slap on my face. Lo and behold, I saw four armed robbers. I opted to give them the key to my rickety car. They slapped me again, saying, ‘Who wants your car’? They told me to move to the back seat of the car while they used my car to rob others. They took my money, jewelry, phone, and a cap.”
Banky W made this revelation on ‘Monday Night Live’, a night show hosted by Tim Godfrey. He recalled that the scariest moment of the stickup was when they asked him to sing.
“At one point, one of the armed robbers told the others, ‘Let us take him to Ajah and kill him.’ I started begging them not to kill me. I told them I am a singer. They then asked me to tell them the songs I had recorded. When I mentioned ‘Ebute Metta’ ‘Capable’ and others, the robbers expressed surprise saying, ‘So you are Mr. Capable? Sing for us.’ That was the scariest free show I ever did in my life. I had to sing to armed robbers.”
