Valentine countdown: Which of these celebrities will be perfect for Banky W?

Banky W

Serial groomsman, Banky W, recently revealed that he has no woman in his life and is the last bachelor standing in his clique of friends.

With no special object of desire to call his own, the R&B singer also announced he will hand out surprise gifts to 100 fans instead of celebrating Valentine’s Day with a lover.

Given our genuine interest in the handsome star, we have looked at five celebrities who might have a shot at being Mrs Bankole Wellington.

Like Banky said during an interview with Toolz on Beat FM, “2016 is the year to seize a bae” and we are giving him a list to choose from.

Rita Dominic

Rita DominicThe fact that she is 40 and he is 34 doesn’t mean this two cannot be a perfect match. If there is anything Darey and his wife taught us, it is that age is no barrier to finding true love.

Banky was at Rita’s Christmas bash which was meant for only close friends. This in mind, it can be concluded that the two are in fact close friends and can become more than that at a point.

The two are in fact said to be closer than the six years between them suggest.

Kemi Adetiba

Kemi AdetibaKemi Adetiba and the ‘Yes/No’ singer have been rumoured to be in a relationship at one point or the other but they have always denied it.

Kemi once said: “Banky is like my brother. I met him before he became big. It’s weird when people say we are compatible. I can understand why people group us together, though, because we travel together and all that.”

There is no greater proof of chemistry than what we saw in 2009 when the pair co-hosted the Headies (then Hip Hop World Awards) in Abuja.

Besides, Banky never fails to wish Kemi a happy birthday every January 5.

Andreas Giaccaglia

Andreas GiaccagliaGhanaian-Italian model, Andreas Giaccaglia, will make for one stunning Valentines date or even bride.

Andreas and Banky were reportedly an item in 2013 but parted ways in 2014.

The pair have stayed on a low key but we won’t mind if they start showing up at events together again at least so Banky can stop telling us he has no woman in his life.

Adesua Etomi

Adesua EtomiIt is no news that actress Adesua Etomi and Mr Capable are good friends. He recently solicited for votes on her behalf on Instagram to win the Best Actress in A Drama category in the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards.

Is it also a coincidence that Adesua is spotted at almost every celebrity wedding Banky s present at?

Do we sense a pattern?


NiyolaYou did not think we would leave out Niyola, did you? If there is a race for the female celebrity who is closer than close to Banky, Niyola will be the biggest contender.

Miss Eniola Akinbo and Mr Wellington have a working relationship that most female fans are jealous of.

Call us hopefuls, but we are still waiting for them to confirm what many have always suspected.
