Popular Nigerian singer, Oluwabankole Wellington better known as Banky W, has debunked the rumour going round about he and his spouse selling tickets to their wedding for N35,000. Reacting to the rather interesting claim, Banky W simply said good luck to those who believe in the rumour. The ace artiste who recently did a surgery for skin cancer related the rumours to popular Nigerian style of scam where people send you emails or sms claiming your BVN is blocked or you need to transfer a sum of money to claim an inheritance.

Some people claim the couple cannot afford the expenses of a wedding hence their selling of tickets, while others think they spent a lot of money on Banky W’s health so they need all the money they can get. Below are some of the reactions of people to the rumour;
