‘My dad told me not to leave Jesus Christ’- Reekado Banks
Mavin Records artiste, Reekado Banks is one dude who makes the ladies drool not just because of his voice, but also because of his vocal dexterity. The Katapot singer who was born into a Christian family has stated that his dad advised him to hold on to Jesus Christ, when he told him about his plans to pursue music as a career.
Speaking with Punch in an interview, he said:”My parents have always been supportive and they want the best for their children. When I initially told my mother about my intention, she had no problem with it. She then told my dad and he was okay with it too but said he wanted to be sure that I wouldn’t leave Jesus Christ.”
The singer further said nothing has changed about him since becoming a super star. According to him:“I am still the same person I used to be. I do every other thing I want but I no longer have the liberty of walking on the street or going to some certain places I would have loved to go. I have always been the indoor type and even when I was in the University of Lagos, I never went to clubs or things like that.”
