Nigerian singer, Banky W, has been honoured by Eric L. Adams, the President of the Borough of Brooklyn for his contribution to his community and successful career.
Banky shared his latest achievement with his fans on his Instagram page. He explained how hard it was for him to return to Nigeria to pursue music adding that he is glad he made his choice looking back at how far he has come.
The singer wrote, “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. “
“But 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.”
