The singer took to his Twitter page on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, where he promised to support the singer turned politician.

"Congrats @BankyW! You have my support! Don’t sit at home and complain get up and make a change," he tweeted.

Banky W won the ticket to represent Eti-Osa federal constituency in the house of representatives under the PDP.

The primaries took place on Monday, May 23.

The music star scored twenty-eight votes to defeat his opponent who scored three votes.

The music star announced that he'll be running for the House of Reps seat back in April.

"We must engage with Nigeria where it is, not where we prefer for it to be. In 2019, we planted the seed. In 2023, by the grace of God, and with your support, we will win the seat. The time for just talking is over. It's time to #TalkAndDo. I hope I can count on you. We move," he tweeted at that time.

Banky W first announced his decision to run for the house of representatives back in November 2018.

The news was largely received by both fans and industry colleagues.

He however lost the elections to Ibrahim Obanikoro of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
