When Banky W aka Mr Capable released his debut hit single Ebute Meta, Nigerians saw the birth of a new RnB hero. The boy band Style Plus were a huge success, mesmerising their fans with their sonorous RnB tunes. Then came Darey Art Alade and then Banky W who brought a different feel to the industry.
Little did we know that he could rap. Banky W has built for himself a strong RnB reputation in the industry releasing hit songs and driving the ladies crazy, then suddenly, Mr capable introduces his rap side.
In a song ‘Bad Guy P’ Banky W alongside Sarkodie and L.O.S gave a sterling performance and Banky officially introduced his rapping skills to the world. Nigerians were surprised that he could rap so fluently and Banky’s rap rating soared.
The industry was yet to recover from the surprise before Cool Dj Jimmy Jatt featured Banky W and Phyno in Toh Be and once again, Banky killed it with his flawless rap style.
At this point it could be safe to say that Banky W can take on most of the known Nigerian rappers and beat them hands down. His lyrics, flow, delivery and punch lines is nothing short of classic showing the diverse nature of this talented artiste. As the year gradually comes to an end, we expect to see more of this side of Mr Capable.
