Olubankole Wellington, popularly known by his stage name Banky W has opened up about his struggles with promiscuity and pornography many years ago and how he overcame the addiction.
The musician stated that at the time, he felt empty and wretched despite being successful.
The superstar singer and dad-of-one disclosed this during an interview on “Visibility Lunch Hour” where he also spoke about his marriage, fatherhood and how he remained visible in the entertainment industry.
According to him it was like he was in bondage and he was stuck until God delivered him.
While stressing on the importance of a relationship with God in a person’s life, Banky said:
“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.
This is now getting to areas where one feel that one is in bondage and one is trying to clean oneself. So you are 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 am still not happy.
I have been fortunate to be able to do what I love for a living, for a long time. I am grateful for the small success we have experienced in music, in film, in other ventures. But there is what I like to call a God shaped void inside every man.See Also
Until you start to fill that void with God, you will 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 is a purpose thing, not a pay thing. It’s a meaning thing not about money. That’s why you see some of this billionaires pass away on their own account.”
