Banky W has been chosen as one of the distinguished people to carry the 2012 Olympic Torch.
The EME boss will join three other distinguished entertainers including Steve Onu (Yaw), Funke Akindele, and football star, Kanu Nwankwo to lift the Torch in Coventry, U.K on Sunday, July 1, 2012.
This is the second time a Nigerian musician would be selected to feature in the ceremonial initiative. Rapper Eedris Abdulkareem was part of the Nigerians selected to carry the torch in 2001.
Meanwhile, Wizkid has confirmed he’s joining Tiwa Savage as brand ambassador for Pepsi.
The 21 year-old star singer, who returned last week from Beirut where he was shooting Pepsi commercials with Tiwa, says he’s having fun and working hard to make sure he ‘doesn’t disappoint’.
Wizkid’s boss, Banky, interestingly, recently fronted a campaign for Coca Cola.
