Following the fire that gut the apartment of popular Nigerian Singer Banky W, the singer has come out to narrate the whole incident.

He said that when he laid awake on his bed around 6a.m today he started perceiving the smell of smoke coming from the stairway. When he got up and walked towards the stair to find out what was going on, he discovered that the whole stairway was filed with black smoke that he could not find his way through. He had to go back and escape through the 2nd floor balcony with his dog.

He noted that the fire was caused by an air conditioner in the living room which had caught fire at that time of the morning.

In his words,” The ac in the living room had caught fire.. I know a lot of ppl have been trying to call and I appreciate it. Maybe the fire burnt some of the network in the house because I can’t receive calls LOL , but instead of calling to say sorry pls just maybe say a prayer and thank God with me.

Thank God I was awake to smell the smoke. Thank God we caught it early enough and the damage wasn’t so bad.. it basically burnt some of the stuff that was around it. So awards, portraits, and some small electronics. But thank God, Duke and I are alive and well. We only had to form James Bond and climb down from the top floor balcony LOL. Thank God for my neighbors and the amazing workers in and around the compound for helping us escape via the balcony, helping put out the fire, and helping with the aftermath/cleaning.

Banky appreciated every one who helped him out during the incident and he urged friends and fans to pray for him because he believes that the devil knew of God’s great plans for him that was why he tried to throw tantrums.

Meanwhile sources around revealed that men of the fire service came 1hour 30minutes late after they were notified of the incident. They would have been able to avert more destruction of properties had they come on time.
