Bankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W, has broken his silence following his defeat in the just-concluded election.
The famous music mogul-turned-politician lost the Lagos State Eti-Osa Federal Constituency election to Labour Party's Thaddeus Attah, polling 18,666 votes while the latter got 24,075 votes.
Speaking publicly for the first time after the defeat, Banky W uploaded a video on his Instagram page where he is seen giving a motivational speech to the members of The Waterbrook Church.
He encourages those who have experienced loss or disappointment, charging them with the need to build their faith and praise God.
“For anyone who’s ever suffered through a loss, a disappointment or a situation where things just didn’t work out the way you hoped... ‘Faith after a fall’ is for you, for me.
“This was to be our Thanksgiving service. After the election is over and we come and we are celebrating, thanking God.
“And I was going to give a short charge to say see what the Lord has done.
“And then, we use that to build up your faith and give God some praise.
“Then we finish the service and I go to Abuja to start looking for apartment and office space.
“Your faith in God does not stop you from hurting, but it helps you heal, and it helps you deal", he said.
