Everyone knows Banky W is the boss at Empire Mates Entertainment (EME),only a few have discovered that the self proclaimed King of the Lagos party loves to set new goals and attain new heights. The R&B star who recently released the videos of his two singles which he directed, in a chat with Showtime revealed the reason he attended
the New York Film Academy.
“I believe in expansion and growth. I believe in setting new goals and trying to attain new heights. I believe in never being comfortable where you are, but continuing to strive to be bigger and better in what you do. Eighty percent of the videos EME have come out with; I write the treatments and come out with the concepts. Then I was like:”You know what, It’s time for me to learn some of that myself. I don’t want to be a fulltime director. From time to time, I will take it upon myself to deliver it the way I want it done.”
When asked if he is considering making a full length film, he said he might consider it in the future. “There is still a lot for me to learn, you will see me doing more videos, doing TV commercials and walking my way in. Eventually, I will make my own movie one day. Its not something I will do right away, I have a lot more to learn.
He also disclosed what he looks out for when he signs an artiste on his label. “I look out for talent, hardwork and humility. Hardwork beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. I look for people who are hardworking and talented.”
