What Banky W had to say about making the Forbes List of Bankable Artistes

Banky-W 08EME chairman, Banky W spoke with Nigerian Tribune recently on several issues and he shared his though about the recently released Forbes top 10 bankable artists. He said:

“I don’t believe very much in such things. Let’s be honest, the real wealthy people are the businessmen like Dangote and the politicians (some of who got there by looting Nigeria). They’re the ones with real money. This entertainment business is too much hype. It is more fame than fortune. So I’m not thrilled by it and I don’t think any of us should buy into it too much. I’d rather be wealthy and quiet than famous and broke.”

    When forbes say bankable stars, they mean a star with a huge return on investment. You spend little on then but they generate huge revenues.
    So dear Bank W, forbes ain’t saying you’re a millionaire, they saying you’re a stable investment.

        I mean forbes just paid him a huge compliment and what does he do? Go acting like he is not bothered, talking shit about corrupt millionaires. One major reason he said all those things is because he got carried away thinking he was called a millionaire. His pride blocked him him from seeing the huge endorsement by forbes. They practically telling major brands to make him their ambassador and he’ll generate huge returns.
