NIGERIAN ARTISTS AND THEIR FIRST HITS - EBUTE META (BANKY W)

Just after when Bad Girl Riri (Rihana) gifted the world her hit single "Umbrella" which got the world dancing, Nigeria's Olubankole Wellington popularly known as Bank W (Mr. Capable) couldn't resist the vibes, so he jumped on the beat and he did a fantastic cover of the playlist smashing hit which he titled "Ebute Meta". Little did he know that this cover would later be his first-class ticket into the limelight, as Banky W would later venture into creative marketing, advertising, PR, brand events, acting, and Politics.

Bank W signed his multi-million naira deal with one of Nigeria's telecommunication giants; Etisalat after the song "Ebuta Meta" went viral. Banky W one more time delivered a hit audio jingle for the telecom brand, the song was such a heavy hit that it enjoyed a lot of airplay. By the way, the music was a little prophetic if you ask me, because Banky W wore Etisalat's official color as his major costume.

Let's vibe on the hit monster titled "Ebute Meta" one more time. See lyrics below:

Laser-sharp hairline shaped by Dominicans

Mr. Capable is back with his pad and his pen again

Catch me in the Bronx politicking with mami's

Blowing up like I'm more juiced up than Rocky

Mad cause your girl fell in love with a black man

And yes I'm so African, tell by my accent?

And yes I'm Nigerian damn right I am packing

And yes I'm the future the rest of you are past tense


I rep Naija

Whether I live near or far

I can be out in Yankee

Or even posted up in Jand

See u gotta know who u are

Even when you hustle hard

Just follow your dreams

And you can be a superstar, because


U can cross rivers in Calabar

U can so rock out in Abuja

Riding Okadas in Benin

Doesn't matter we gonn make it out to the end

Whether your up north in Kaduna

Or getting your hustle on in Anambra

Riding through traffic in Lagos


U can be from Ebute metta, metta, metta, Ey Ey Ey

From Ebute metta, metta, metta Ey Ey Ey

From Ebute metta, metta, metta Ey Ey Ey

From Ebute metta, metta, metta Ey Ey Ey


Make u rep Naija

Whether you live near or far

You can be out in yankee

Or even posted up in Jand

Make u know who u be

Even when you're hustling

Make u follow your dreams

Even if you're from Oshodi Oshodi Oh


U can cross rivers in Calabar

U can so rock out in Abuja

Riding Okadas in Benin

Doesn't matter we gonn make it out to the end

Whether your up north in Kaduna

Or getting your hustle on in Anambra

Riding through traffic in Lagos


U can be from Ebute metta, metta, metta, Ey Ey Ey

From Ebute metta, metta, metta Ey Ey Ey

From Ebute metta, metta, metta Ey Ey Ey

From Ebute metta, metta, metta Ey Ey Ey


We can make it, Naija we can make it

If we only keep unity, keep unity

We can make it, Naija we can make it

If we only got unity, got unity...
