Twitter Reacts As Banky W Replies “Stalkers” Who Won’t Mind Their Business
Popular Nigerian singer and songwriter, Olubankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W, has hit back at ‘stalkers’ who mocked him for driving an “old” Range Rover car.
A video, which has since gone viral, emerged some days back, where the singer was being filmed by two faceless ladies at a grocery store who apparently felt the vehicle he was driving was not suitable for someone in his class.

Speaking further in derogation, the two women can be heard hurling insults at him and his wife Adesua as he was offloading goods into his vehicle, calling their car “dead beat, old and expired.”
After days of trending on social media coupled with the reactions the video sparked off from fans and critics alike, we all thought Banky W was going to ignore the yet to be identified ladies.
Last weekend, a very creepy video was posted online, by someone making fun of my car. I wrote her an open letter. You can read it on my blog: https://t.co/bpo7WGqYv3
Pls share with everyone you know. I really want her to read it. LOL.

“Last weekend, a very creepy video was posted online, by someone making fun of my car. I wrote her an open letter. You can read it on my blog: Pls share with everyone you know. I really want her to read it. LOL.,” he said.
He, however did the unexpected, by posting on his blog a long epistle about the matter.
In response to the cringe worthy, creepy video you made about my wife and I, I think there are some things you need to know. First of all, poverty will never be my portion in Jesus name. Also, it is a 2008 Range Rover Sport not a 1999. Amen and Lol. Oh, and additionally, it’s currently for sale to the highest bidder. I had decided last month that I’d sell it, and whatever I got for it, I’d hand over to the “Vocational School for the Blind” in Oshodi and the “Pink Oak Cancer Trust Fund”. My Aunt volunteers at the school, and she reminded me that they were still trying to raise some money to care for their students, so I came up with a plan. I told her that I’d give my followers the background history of my old car, and get all my celebrity friends who’d sat in it at some point or another to autograph it, and then put it up for an online auction. I figured that since I didn’t need the money from the sale to buy a new one, we could just auction it off and hopefully raise a decent enough amount of money to give back to those in need.
Below are some reactions from Twitter:
I’d never understand why people feel Bank W’s reply was unnecessary, there’s so much to learn from his response on that blog

My dear Banky & Adesua,
Thanks for your human concern to explain!
With all respect to you and what you stand for…….don’t offer any explanations to those who live their lives in the eyes of others;

Bank W a real business man, he seized the moment, and sold his brand looking beyond negativity..
The reply is very necessary before that nuance start feeling like she won, plus the reply teaches some life standards..

Silence would have been a better option than that Banky W’s shallow response.
