Banky W reveals he has finished recording his forthcoming album titled ‘The Bank Statements’

Nigerian R&B legend Banky W has revealed that he has finished recording his forthcoming album ‘The Bank Statements’.

Banky W has not released a studio album since 2013 cult classic ‘R&BW’.

Speaking of his next album during a conversation on the YouTube channel of pastor and certified relationship coach Kingsley Okonkwo, the singer revealed that the title of his next album would be ‘The Bank Statements’.

”I’ve taken some years off. I heard somebody once said that artists never retire; they just stop when they no longer have any stories to tell. And I’ve just lived a lot of lives in the last few years that I have been quite in the music scene. I have a lot of stores to tell, above love, relationship, about God, about country, about life”, Banky said

“I have recorded what I feel is a life about; it’s called ‘The Bank Statements’. If you think about your bank statements from January to December, it’s a kind of snapshots of your life”.

”What is important to you, what you are spending on. If you look back to your bank statement of last year, it will just give you what your life is”.

Banky explained the concept behind the album, which has a song for every month of the year.

”So the album is called the Bank’s Statement one because it’s Banky’s statement and also conceptually, and there is a song for every month of the year”, he said.

”So there is a January and December song because you have to start and end the year with God. There is a February song, which is Valentine’s Day so it is a love song to my baby”.

“My birthday is March, so there is a turn up kind of song for my birthday. The ninth song of the album is for our son because pregnancy takes nine months and it’s called ‘Champ Song’”.

”It’s a very intentional, thoughtful, creative and powerful album. It’s actually my favorite record because now I can sing above love from a place of currently experiencing it”.

“E.M.E. stopped the record label business in 2017. We actually pivoted into a media and marketing agency. We world corporates, influencers, advertisers”, he said.

“What people don’t know is that we are worth so much more as an agency than we ever were as a record label, even at the height of success”.

We hope to see the best of Banky W in his forthcoming album.
