Banky W urge celebrities to vote right in 2015

23 May 2014, 13:14

Lagos -  A popular musician, Banky W, on Thursday advised celebrities to support candidates that had the interest of the people at heart during the coming general elections.

Banky W said that celebrities were opinion molders and had followers who they could influence to vote during elections.

"I will only support a candidate if I truly believe that he is the right person for a job. It should be a responsible choice and not for sale,'' said the musician born as Bankole Wellington.

"Electing a leader is a very personal decision for any citizen and that should still remain a very important and significant decision for each person to make responsibly and not just the celebrities.’’

Banky W said that he took active part in getting people to register to vote during the last general elections due to his belief that young people should have interest in the process of selecting their leaders.

The artiste promised to mobilise youths to participate in the 2015 general elections, adding that he  might even go as far as endorsing a particular person for the presidency.

 Banky W is a popular R and B artiste based in Lagos, who has been active in the Nigerian music industry since 2004, with various hit songs to his name.

He is also co-owner of the Indie record label, Empire Mates Entertainment (E.M.E).
