Banky shared the news via his Instagram page, where he also disclosed he just had his third surgery on the same ailment, adding that he has been away taking treatment.
In a touching post about his cancer of the skin ailment, Banky wrote:
“A wise man once said this: “Scars. A sign that you had been hurt. A sign that you had been healed.” Scroll through the pictures to see mine.
“I’m sharing these because they’re proof of what God has brought me through. And because somewhere out there, I know there’s someone who needs to hear this.
“For those who’ve been wondering why I’ve been away so long..I had my 3rd surgery on a rare strain of skin cancer tumours in my shoulder last month. The first 2 times were over 10 yrs ago, then it recently resurfaced. But this isn’t a sad story as much as it is a reminder, and a testimony.
“A reminder that you should never take life for granted. You only get 1 shot. Some people went to sleep and never woke up. Many others have lost the battle to cancer and other illnesses. Many are still fighting.
Oluwabankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W, and his wife Adesua Etomi are stars of Nollywood hit movie ‘The Wedding Party’.
