Nigerians have taken to social media to call entertainer cum politician Bankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W over rumoured affairs with former label signee Eniola Akinbo, best known as Niyola.

According to an online platform (not The PUNCH), the ‘Lagos Party’ crooner who tied the knot with actress Adesua Etomi in 2017 has been cheating on his wife with Niyola, whom he impregnated on multiple occasions and also directed to abort all pregnancies.

Banky signed Niyola to EME Records in 2012. The two, upon announcing their business partnership, were plagued with dating rumours for many years until Niyola’s exit from the label in 2016.

Although neither Banky nor Niyola had yet to respond to the allegations as of press time, Nigerians have since taken to social media to react to the rumour.

One Nwunyeegombute3 wrote; ”Banky W is trending for cheating on his wife (this is still a rumour), ndi ‘I can never believe in marriage again. I’ve not seen them condemn the woman who willingly (take note of the word) slept with her fellow woman’s husband. She wasn’t raped, so she should also get blamed.”

Another Twitter user wrote; ”Niyiola was Banky W’s first love and he went ahead and get married to Adesua then went ahead to cheat on her with Niyiola. Truly some men are scum.”

While some Netizens dragged Banky, others came to Niyola’s aid, slamming critics for attacking the ”Toh Bad” crooner for her looks.

Primestone tweeted, ”Apart from the fact that Niyola is also talented, she is also very beautiful, Adesuwa’s only advantage is her fair skin.

Banky and Adesua tied the knot in 2017. Their relationship before their marriage was a private one that took many by surprise upon the announcement.

The couple, who have been open about their struggle to conceive a child together, welcomed their first child, a son, Hazaiah Olusegun Wellington, in 2021.
