Reekado Banks, Afrobeat singer, has revealed that he isn’t the typical flashy guy despite his celebrity status.
In a recent chat with GoldMyneTV, Banks said he’d rather put his money into things that have a future impact than spending frivolously.
He said: “I’m a futuristic guy, I’d rather invest my money on different things that would sustain me forever and my generation. One of the things is a school and I’m building one- primary and secondary- somewhere in Lagos.”
The artiste however admitted that he is also human, saying, “I blow my cash too. Everyone with their own priorities”.
Banks said he would be taking a break from his album production to focus on newer projects. The ‘Own That’ singer recently released two songs, ‘Easy’ and ‘Kiss me’.
He said: “Easy is a fast track song that tells the story of a guy that just met a girl for the first time and is trying to get married to her. The girl, in turn, scares him off saying her bride price is a particular amount. It is just comical. Kiss me is a feel good love song.”
The entertainer also gushed about his “angel” in the industry, ace music producer Don Jazzy.
“[Mavin] has been there for me since 2014 till now. [Don Jazzy] has done the greatest thing for me. He has been amazing, he was the angel that turned everything around,” he added.
On the topical issue regarding rumors of him fathering a child, Banks artfully dodged the question rather than give an actual answer.
He said, “I’m daddy to the girls. I am a daddy yo so let it go. I’m just living life. There is enough Reekado banks for everybody. I’m engaged, married, single and out here, just living life.”
