Nigerian singer and rapper, Banky W has shared his experience with robbers who told him to sing for them after robbing him in Lagos Island.

The singer who spoke at ‘Monday Night Live’, a programme hosted by a Gospel artiste Tim Godfrey said the incident occurred on a certain December 31 night ‘crossover’ service after he dropped off a friend.

The 38-year-old said, “I recall that after a certain December 31 night ‘crossover’ service, I was on my way to the island after dropping a friend. On getting to where my friends were, I stopped and alighted. The next thing I felt was a slap at my face. Lo and behold, I saw four armed robbers. I opted to give them the key of my rickety car. They slapped me again, saying, ‘Who wants your car’? They told me to move to the back seat of the car while they used my car to rob others. They took my money, jewellery, phone and cap.”
Banky W also added “At one point, one of the armed robbers told the others, ‘Let us take him to Ajah and kill him.’ I started begging them not to kill me.  I told them I am a singer. They then asked me to tell them the songs I had recorded. When I mentioned ‘Ebute Metta’ ‘Capable’ and others, the robbers expressed surprise saying, ‘So you are Mr. Capable? Sing for us.’ That was the scariest free show I ever did in my life. I had to sing to armed robbers.”
