Banky W and Nonso Amadi have created a dope piece for married couples in “Running After U” and to further promote the song, the singer, Banky, has revealed the inspiration behind the song and some details on how he pulled it off.
Through a post on his blog, the singer stated that the entertainment industry and the internet is full of videos about love while dating, breakups, twerking, proposals and weddings but nobody is promoting the institution called marriage.
To Banky, having songs and videos that show how happy imperfect people in marriage can be perfect for each other and happy too will go a long way, hence “Running After U”.
The singer revealed that the song was supposed to be about relationships but he flipped the script at the last minute, calling on his married friends and their partners to come make appearances in the video.
To Banky, the journey of marriage is never easy and both partners need to always be willing to work it out but while aiming for a successful marriage, they should learn to be happy in the process. In his words; “The journey of marriage isn’t always easy, but with the right person, every step ends up worth it”
With visual representation being an important aspect of life and tool for teaching, Banky believes positive interpretation of marriages will go a long way.

In the “Running After U” song, I tried to tell the story of how my wife and I got together. But 24 hours before we shot the video, I decided I wanted to use the video to celebrate the whole journey of marriage. And so I drastically altered the original casting plans last minute, and called up all my married friends who were in town, to come hang out on set, have some fun together, and celebrate the decision to attempt this thing called life together. The journey of marriage isn’t always Read More
