Banky W Shares “Heaven” and “Love U baby” off his ‘Songs About U’ Ep

How does a man stay with one woman for the rest of his life?

Words by Fisayo Okare

The month of May has been a lovely one for (soon to be) Mr & Mrs W;  from disclosing their marriage proposal, to the event of their traditional wedding introduction, to teasing the track-list to Banky W’s “Songs About U” EP. If you think you have seen all of their pictures together: selfies and rear view camera shots, think again cause this right here is only the beginning.

His (un)official audio-video release for the track off the Ep, specially written for and about Adesua Etomi anon Wellington, “Heaven (Susu’s song)” takes us on a journey of their love through a slideshow of images and video snippets. Remember that moment in The Wedding Party (part 1), where Dozie Onwuka (as played by Banky) is having that “sit-down-talk” with his Dad (played by RMD) on the day of his wedding ceremony? Recall,

Dozie: How does a man stay with one woman for the rest of his life?

Chief Onwuka: You know son, I’m afraid I haven’t been a very good example to you and your brother, and I know that, and I’m sorry. Your mum and I, we have not always been like this. Time was when we were good…you know, very good in fact. And then, you make a mistake, unforgiveness sets in, bitterness sets in, your ego comes in …then, things just starts going down the hill from there.

Son, I just want you to promise me. That you will fight! You will fight for it no matter what happens. There’ll be bad days, but don’t give up. Just fight for it the way…your mum and I should have.

Dozie: Okay. … but maybe I’m not the one you should be saying this to…

Well, Banky adds an itsy-bitsy of the above in the video too. The video is also created with images from his 2015 “Made for you” music video, The Wedding party, and for a second or two we see that moment he actually graces Susu with the proposal (No, not the moments you’ve seen before).  There is no dubiety songs off his Ep will be played on their wedding day, perhaps for that slow dance. “Love U baby” is the 5th song on the track list and he shares a lyrical video for the track about the same time he released “Heaven” today.

Now all we need is for Banky to tweet “Wedding is on the of the month, dash”.

Meanwhile, mark your calendars for June 1st to clinch a copy of the full Songs About U Ep on music platforms, while you listen/watch Banky W’s “Heaven (Susu’s song)” and “Love U baby”, produced by Chris Cubeta and Cobhams respectively, below.
