Banky W struggles with cancer

Popular Musician / Actor Banky W recently has been off the scene for a while now. We were all wondering; “where has Dozie gone to”?  Dozie is the role name Banky W played for the record breaking Wedding Party movie in which after the movie was release, he proposed to Adesua Etomi; his wedded wife in the movie. It was such a Cinderella story that caught the attention of the media and got everyone talking for quite some time.

However, recently our knight in shining armor seemed not to be as active as he usually is on social media- Instagram, where he shares his romantic dates with his engaged fiancee, shared his music exploits as well as movie exploits, expensive trips and so on. It was a shock when we realized that Banky W has been struggling with skin cancer for the past 10 years and it recently got out of hand. To all who envy celebrity lifestyles and have prayed to God to be like Banky W one day, well be careful what you wish for. Everyone does have their own fair share of struggles. As 1 Corinthians 10 vs 13 says; “The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure”. God has been faithful to Banky W and we rejoice with him in his overcoming of this temptation.

Below is a post he published on Instagram as regards this struggle;

A wise man once said this: "Scars. A sign that you had been hurt. A sign that you had been healed." Scroll through the pictures to see mine. I'm sharing these because they're proof of what God has brought me through. And because somewhere out there, I know there's someone who needs to hear this. For those who've been wondering why I've been away so long..I had my 3rd surgery on a rare strain of skin cancer tumours in my shoulder last month. The first 2 times were over 10 yrs ago, then it recently resurfaced. But this isn't a sad story as much as it is a reminder, and a testimony. A reminder that you should never take life for granted. You only get 1 shot. Some people went to sleep and never woke up. Many others have lost the battle to cancer and other illnesses. Many are still fighting. U never know when your time will be up so don't waste another minute. It's also a testimony about the goodness of God. I think I had to go through this again to remember how merciful God is to me; Lord knows I don't deserve it but He saves me time and again anyway. I keep saying I need to write a book. I really, really do. The past few weeks of recovery have been tough, but beautiful. I'm finally back on my feet, feeling stronger and ready to get back to life. I'm especially thankful to my Nurse Susu for loving me and being by my side every step of the way – I don't deserve U 😍😭, my parents & siblings, in-laws & close friends for the love, support and prayers, my Pastors – Pastor Tony Rapu & Pastor Del Balogun of TPH, Pastor Taiwo Odukoya and Pastor Bayo Adeyokunnu – for constantly praying with and for me. And of course to Dr Wodajo & Dr Miralli & their teams – who God used to operate on me successfully. I'm thankful for life, provision and healing. Pls dont feel bad, or msg me with any worries.. God has done it, just thank Him for me. The pain will eventually go away but the scar won't – and I'm glad because it's a reminder to me of what God has done, and evidence to you of what He CAN do. I'm not stronger or better than anyone. I'm just a living testimony that no matter what u face, U can survive & thrive, by God's grace. #TheBankStatements #nowplaying #BlessingMe
