The month of November,2011, for some time will not be forgotten by Lagos based wave making singer,Banky W.

Reason? Sometime in that month,Banky according to an eye witness,was billed to perform in a high society party,organized by top politicians in Abuja,which had in attendance the Vice President,Arch Sambo,Senate President,David Mark and others including some states governors.

Our source said that aside,Banky W other music stars billed to thrill the guests was veteran music star,Bongos Ikweue.

We gathered that when the party started rolling at exactly 8.40pm some not yet very popular artistes were called on the stage to showcase their arts,which they did perfectly well to the admiration of the guests.

After an hour,the event coordinators and master of ceremony went to the guest artistes and informed Banky that it was his turn to perform,but instead of honoring the invitation the “Ebutemeta “ crooner went into argument with them telling them that as a star that he will be the last to perform.

After the hot argument and exchange of word,the master of ceremony invited the Otukpo born Bongus Ikwue on stage.

Our source said that on getting to the stage Bongus proved his worth and sang his oldies to the admiration of all including the Vice President,Senate President and governors,who joined him on stage,singing and dancing to his songs.His performance they said lasted for more than hour,and minutes after he climbed down the stage,the whole top politicians including the Vice President and Governors all began to leave the party to their various homes.

Our source said,that when Banky climbed the stage to perform the party hall was almost empty as only the policemen guarding the venue and some young people were around to watch his performance.
