If not for sheer providence, Nigerians could have lost one of its biggest icons in the music industry, Banky W, whose home along Admiralty Way, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos was gutted by fire.
The popular singer confirmed this on his Instagram page and also shared details of how he and his dog escaped the fire outbreak at his Lekki home unhurt.
It is understood that the home was razed by a conflagration that emanated from a faulty AC around 6am; early this morning.
On his post, Banky W said: “There is good news and bad news. The good news is I am thanking God that I am alive to give the bad news as testimony.
“Bad news is I was lying awake at about 6am when I started smelling smoke. Shut my TV and AC and realized it was coming from outside my door. I opened it to see that the entire staircase was filled with gusts of black smoke and a fire was burning downstairs.
“Thank God I was awake to smell the smoke. Thank God we caught it early enough. I am not upset. I am just grateful for life and health and for the grace and mercy of God in my life. I figure I am about to have the best year ever so the devil tried tio throw a tantrum. But not today Satan, not ever. Now sit down and watch me grow bigger and greater by God’s grace. Amen.”
