Popular Nigerian singer and producer Banky W got honored in New York with citation certificates by the President of the Borough of Brooklyn, Eric Adams. Banky was so excited about his accomplishment that he shared a very wordy caption with the picture of him receiving the award. He even went as far as referring to a part of the bible.
Deducting a little from his words, he owes the bulk of his accomplishments to God and destiny
“So earlier today, The President of the Borough of Brooklyn honoured us with Citation certificates, for our contributions to our communities and for our career accomplishments.
Here’s the thing… in life, it’s important to find your purpose, and to trust God and believe in yourself as you work hard to chase it. Follow the path that leads to you fulfilling your destiny.
I lived in NYC for over 10 YEARS. And at the time, being on stage at a venue like the Barclay’s Center, or being honoured by the City Of New York, didn’t seem like something that was remotely possible”
Another advice from the successful producer is to take a bold step and stick by it.
“…I felt like my calling/destiny was back home in Africa. I felt like the music grind I’d started… it just felt like Lagos was where I was meant to be. Even though at the time, my entire immediate family no longer lived in Naija and my parents couldn’t understand why I’d want to risk it all to go back there. It took a while to make the decision, But I quit my Job in Engineering, bought a one way ticket and came back. And here I am, 7 years later, performing at and hosting the #oneafricamusicfest at the Barclay’s Center… being honoured by Brooklyn.
Mr Wellington also wants you to know that he is not sharing his success story out of pride but to inspire and encourage
“I share this not to be arrogant.. but to tell you that truly, NOTHING is impossible. You can be all that you plan to be. If I could make it, you can too. Your current position in life is only temporary. It’s like The story of Joseph in the Bible…”
