Why I drive a 2008 model vehicle — Banky W



Pop singer , Olubankole Wellington , popularly known as Banky W , has hit back at some women who insulted him for allegedly owning a 1999 sports utility vehicle.
The incident , which happened three days ago , showed the musician being filmed by two women at a grocery store who apparently felt the vehicle he was driving was not suitable for someone in his class , whereas raining insults at him as he was offloading goods into his vehicle.

In response to the “ cringe worthy , creepy video” as described by the artiste , he revealed that the vehicle was in fact not a 1999 model but a 2008 own and it was currently on sale to the highest bidder .

“The 2008 Range is up for auction . We ’ re using the car sale to raise money for a worthy cause , so we ’ ll start the bidding at one million naira only , ” Banky said.

He noted that he still drove a 2008 model SUV due to the need to own a nice home before a newer car .

“ You see , I ’ ve never found it necessary to own more than one car . Mostly because I can only ever drive one car at a time ; and when I bought the car in 2011 , I promised myself that I would never buy another car until I owned the home I live in .
