Olubankole Banky W Wellington has put up his famous 9-year-old
The Nigerian superstar made the announcement via his Instagram account on November 22, 2018.
According to him, the money made from the sale of the 2008 model will go to two charities - The School for the Blind and Pink Oak Cancer Trust Fund.
In his words, "This Range Rover has been so good to my Madam and I, but this Saturday, Nov 24th we are auctioning it to raise money for The School for the Blind, and for @pinkoaktrust… If you're looking for a used Car, buy this piece of Nigerian Pop Culture history instead. It has been in more videos and movies than any other option out there lol. It was also the subject of a stalker video some months ago. Point being, it's famous, and these charities need our help. So come through on Saturday and bid on this and many more cars…"
Specifications of the 4-wheel drive include Cruise Control, Rear Parking Aid, Universal Garage Door Opener, Keyless Entry, Heated Mirrors, 8 Cylinder Engine, Airbags, and Safety Features.
Banky W's car gets trolled online
This is not the first time the Nigerian music star, actor and newly turned politician has announced his plans to auction his vehicle.
He initially disclosed his intention for the Range Rover, which he fondly refers to as his 'baby' in July 2018.
This was after two unidentified ladies dragged him on social media for driving an old car.
Banky responded, "Dear Stalker, In response to the cringe-worthy, creepy video you made about my wife and I, I think there are some things you need to know. First of all, poverty will never be my portion in Jesus name. Also, it is a 2008 Range Rover Sport, not 1999. Amen and Lol. Oh, and additionally, it's currently for sale to the highest bidder. I had decided last month that I'd sell it, and whatever I got for it, I'd hand over to the ‘Vocational School for the Blind’ in Oshodi and the ‘Pink Oak Cancer Trust Fund’."
