POPULAR NIGERIAN MUSICAL SENSATION BANKY W SHARES RECOVERY STORY AFTER 10 YEARS STRUGGLE WITH CANCER

Published by:

Banky W shows off his recovery stitches from surgeries he underwent for his cancer treatment.

Nigerian actor, musician and founder of Empire Mates Entertainment Bankole Wellington has opened up about his battle against cancer.

The singer had been away for some time, treating a rare form of skin cancer which resurfaced again after they first appeared over 10 years ago.

To imagine that Banky W kept this battle away from the public until now, kept many off his fans wondering.

Banky W

The artist revealed that he has undergone three successful surgeries to remove tumours from his shoulder, the last of which was carried out in October.

He put up a post on Instagram showing pictures of his surgery scars.

He wrote:

“A wise man once said this: “Scars. A sign that you had been hurt. A sign that you had been healed.” Scroll through the pictures to see mine.

Banky W and wife on recovery bed

I’m sharing these because they’re proof of what God has brought me through. And because somewhere out there, I know there’s someone who needs to hear this.

For those who’ve been wondering why I’ve been away so long..I had my 3rd surgery on a rare strain of skin cancer tumours in my shoulder last month. The first 2 times were over 10 yrs ago, then it recently resurfaced. But this isn’t a sad story as much as it is a reminder and a testimony.

A reminder that you should never take life for granted. You only get 1 shot. Some people went to sleep and never woke up. Many others have lost the battle to cancer and other illnesses. Many are still fighting. U never know when your time will be up so don’t waste another minute. It’s also a testimony about the goodness of God. I think I had to go through this again to remember how merciful God is to me; Lord knows I don’t deserve it, but He saves me time and again anyway. I keep saying I need to write a book. I really, really do. Continue reading

DEVELOPING YOUTH ENTREPRENURAL AND CULTURAL SKILLS IN AN HERITAGE MANAGED ECONOMY: By Prince Omasanjuwa Oshodi

Published by:

One is often time challenged by the litany of stories of young Africans either being trafficked or smuggled into Europe through the Mediterranean Sea. In the course of these travels many are put through inhumane conditions, beaten and held underground as slaves. Others are used as baits to collect ransom from their relatives back home by their captors. The female gender suffers most from irregular migration, as they are often raped and impregnated while trying to reach their dream land for better economic opportunities.

The truth remains that the grass is green everywhere, it depends on what you make of your lawn. African economies are losing its young workforce to the deserts of the Sahara and the cold waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Many mothers are unaware that their beloved children who have sojourned through the Sahara to Europe are resting in peace under the hot baked Saharan sun. Must we continue to follow this route, when many of us who have succeeded in reaching Lampedusa and crossing the bladed barb wires of Mellila are still in refugee holding centres, only to begin another round of worries?

Africans are people of heritage, what happened to its moon light stories of Maza Musa and the sand dunes, the history of the ancient Benin, Ife, Asante, and Dufuna kingdoms.

All round the year in Europe because of the integration created by the European Union Protocol on free movement, young Europeans are ever busy criss-crossing the capital of one European country to the other, visiting architectural and ancient’s sites of history.  In 2013 alone, according to the Regional Tourist Board in Europe, Paris received 32.3 million visitors and London 16 million. Tourism in these countries is a wealth creating venture not only for the youths who provide tourist services, but also for government by way of taxation. This has been made possible because of the support that the European Union gives to companies involved in cultural and entrepreneurial businesses through the European Commission DG Enterprise and Industry, Tourism and Cultural Investment Unit.

These companies are involved in creating tangible and intangible tourist items. As side the production of souvenirs for tourists, they also sell tours, with the aid of the European Union who has created sources of tourist information, attractions, holiday ideas, policies, and guidelines for tourism providers.

We understand that the economic situation of most West African countries suffers from high unemployment, conflict, poverty, poor access to education and insecurity, but these will not stop if we fail to put the young back to work.  The promotion of culture in itself helps to promote the creative industries. According to the United Nations, “Culture has the power to transform communities and sustain social and economic development.

A heritage managed economy would provide an answer to the high levels of unemployment amongst most youths in the West African sub-region with the involvement of the local communities and the development of sustainable tourism. These youths are better positioned more than ever before to promote inter cultural understanding and diversity through modern means of communication. They have the capacity to transcend barriers by transforming their potentials into creative economies. As well as promote identity and social cohesion. Continue reading
