As Tiwa Savage and manager Tunji Balogun plan to tie the knot on 26th April, at the Armani Hotel in Dubai, the ‘Capable’ singer Banky W posted a notice of the nuptial on his Instagram page today with the caption: “This Friday night in Dubai… come and rock with us as we celebrate @teebillz323 & @officialtiwasavage..”
Instead of a congratulatory message, a furious fan with the name- ‘afrikaetal’ was obviously not pleased with the destination wedding. “Why Dubai all the time. Use the powerful platform you have to promote your home country instead of the hypocrisy of always running to other Countries. If you all invest the money into small businesses in Nigeria or Africa at lage, we too will have others running to us # proudlyAfrican #” afrikaetal wrote.
Without mincing words, Banky W immediately responded to the negative critic :
“Such comments irritate me. We use the platforms we have to promote Nigeria all the time. We invest our money in Nigeria, You don’t know the number of kids we put through school with scholarships, the number of health care bills we pay for people…you don’t know the number of Nigerian companies we bank roll and float or the number of ideas we invest. It’s hard enough finding happiness in this world…
Two people should be able to celebrate it any way they fell like it!!! PLUS They already did their traditional wedding in Nigeria, they should be free to do whatever or go wherever they want for the white wedding. It;s THEIR wedding. Not a country’s…not a state’s…not mine…and certainly not yours. Leave them be. People all over the world get married, go on vacations or honeymoons, wherever they feel like it all over the world. Our ppl (people) should be allowed to do the same without being branded hypocrites. You and the high horse you rode in on should have several seats. My goodness”. He wrote.
Banky W who is Tee Billz’s best-man is to host the wedding ceremony with ace performances from: Waje, Patoranking, Iyanya, Don Jazzy, Dr Sid, DJ Exclusive and other invited surprise guests.
