How God Helps Me to Overcome Pornography Says Banky W
Veteran Nigerian R&B legend, record label boss, actor, and politician Bankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W, opened up about his spiritual life and how he overcame porn addiction and promiscuity by filling a “God void” he long had.
One of the most successful Nigerian artistes of the last decade, Banky W reveals that he felt emptiness, despite having amassed wealth and running a successful music label.
He made the revelation while advising young people to accept Christ, disclosing that he felt empty without Christ despite his success as an artiste.
Revealing how God rescued him, Banky W in a recent interview with The Visibility Lunch Hour said:
“In the eyes of the world I was a successful artiste, but I still felt empty and wretched.
“There were things I was struggling with on a personal basis. Everything from promiscuity to pornography just, real things that people struggled with on a personal basis.
“It got to a stage where you feel you’re in bondage and so you’re just stuck in this place of feeling far from God, feeling separated from God. Feeling that I have made a little bit of money, but I’m still not happy.”
“I’m grateful for the small success I have experienced in music, in film, in other ventures. But there is what I like to call a God-shaped void inside every man. Until you start to fill that void with God, you’ll find that you will come up short regardless of what success you have or how successful or happy you may seem in the eyes of the world.
“There is an emptiness you feel when you are disconnected from that source. It’s a purpose thing, not a pay thing. It’s a meaning thing, not about money. That is why you see some of these billionaires pass away on their own account,” Banky concluded.
