Nigerians have said Bankole Wellington, Banky W knows nothing about politics, in their reactions to the singer’s response to the N57million payment allegation he received from President Muhammadu Buhari. The insults began to roll in after Banky W shared his perspective on the sack of CJN Walter Onnoghen by President Buhari.
Then the situation escalated after a lady on Twitter accused him of receiving N57 million bribe from Buhari, a claim which he vehemently denied with a threat to sue his accuser. See how Nigerians have reacted to Banky W so far:
One said “See how Davido is speaking up? Falz too? But Banky W wants us to vote him into power for being the cool kid.”
Another: “Where is the Proof that the CJN commited a crime. Now you understand the importance of being innocent until proven guilty, you understand the need for due process? No Mr Banky, if anyone says you collected money, I believe the person.”
Another user said: “Banky W is so naive politically. He knows nothing whatsoever about politics, and each attempt at having a political opinion has seen him sounding ridiculous . Maybe his only motivation is if Desmond Elliot can do it, I too can.”
Another said: “Banky W wants to be a Rep but can’t take criticism. Baba blocked me for calling him out. Someone that wants to lead but cannot follow.. Too full of himself”

Another non-fan stated: “Banky W, with e head like Nivea roll-on, is talking nonsense too. Well the idiot supported occupy Nigeria and Buhari in 2014, so I’m not surprised.
This is coming after singer and House of Reps aspirant, Banky W and wife started a war on Twitter on a certain Miriam Shehu who accused the couple of collecting bride to campaign for Buhari. It all started when the Twitter user fired at Banky W for pretending to be non-partisan and accused him and his wife of collecting N57 million to campaign for President Buhari. She claimed that the couple travelled to Abuja sometime in December to sign the alleged contract. According to her, Banky converted his music label to a PR firm and got a contract from one Abubakar Ahmed to promote Buhari for the up-coming elections. She questioned the singer why he has failed to do his work despite being paid handsomely for it. Miriam went further to state that she has a photo of the couple boarding the flight in which they flew business class, paid for by the facilitator of the alleged contract. A furious Banky immediately responded to the allegations and denied ever signing such a contract. He boldly stated that he has never collected any money to do anything for the president and all Miriam said and lies and all libelous claims to defame his good name.
Banky also threatened that the matter will be tendered in the court of law and if the accuser refuses to show evidence to back up the claims, they will be going to jail for trying to spoil his name. Banky’s wife, Adesua refused to keep mum. She, who was also accused with her husband responded in a series of tweet, also denying the grave allegation. She stated that herself and her hubby were in Abuja in December for and event with EU and did not sign any such contract as claimed by Miriam.
