With his third video of the year, Empire Mates Entertainment boss Banky W shares Running After U, a track off his 2017 album, Songs About U. Dedicated to his wife Adesua Etomi, the video stars celebrities like Noble Igwe, Steve Babaeko, Gbenro Ajibade, Toolz and their spouses.
In his words; “Do you ever think about the fact that there aren’t too many celebrations of married life on music television? There’s a lot of hooking up and twerking, there’s a lot of consummating and flirting, and there are a whole lot of proposals-and-wedding day music videos… but there aren’t too many celebrations of the married life that comes afterward. In the “Running After U” song, I tried to tell the story of how my wife and I got together. And so 24 hours before we shot the video, I decided I wanted to use the video to celebrate the journey of marriage. And so I drastically altered the original casting plans last minute, and called up all my married friends who were in town, to come hang out on set, have some fun together and celebrate the decision to attempt this thing called life together”.
