Banky W, the singer, has spoken out for the first time since losing his second bid for the federal house of representatives seat. 


On February 25, Banky contested for the Eti-Osa federal constituency seat under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He, however, lost to Thaddeus Attah of the Labour Party (LP).

Attah secured 24,075 votes to beat Banky W who had 18,666 votes.


The singer, who spoke at ‘The Water Brooks’ church, expressed his disappointment at losing the election.

The politician said he had made plans to celebrate his “highly anticipated win”.

Banky said he had a discussion with the lead pastor on how he would go to Abuja and secure an apartment for the new office after “my triumph.”


In the message titled ‘Faith after a Fall’, the singer said the loss will, however, not stop him from praising God.

“God said is it only faith when you win? Because the truth is, your faith in God does not stop you from hurting. But it helps you heal and it helps you deal,” he said.

Banky encouraged the congregation to be prepared and know that sometimes, their journey in Christianity can demand “sacrifice, pain, confusion or frustration.”

“Your faith in God is not just about when everything is rosy or a walk in the park,” he added.
