Wedding Party star, Banky-W who has been silent on social media in recent time shared photos showing scars gotten after an operation to remove cancer tumours from his skin.
The singer and actor thanked everyone who had been there for him and was thankful to God for sparing him. He also talked about not taking life for granted.
He 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 for so long. I had my third surgery on a rare strain of skin cancer tumours in my shoulder last month. The first two were over 10 years 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 one 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. U never know when your time will be up so don’t waste another minute. It’s also a testimony about the goodness of God. I think I had to go through this again to remember how merciful God is to me; Lord knows I don’t deserve it but He saves me time and again anyway. I keep saying I need to write a book. I really, really do.
“The past few weeks of recovery have been tough, but beautiful. I’m finally back on my feet, feeling stronger and ready to get back to life. I’m especially thankful to my Nurse Susu for loving me and being by my side every step of the way – I don’t deserve U??, my parents and siblings, in-laws and close friends for the love, support and prayers, my Pastors – Pastor Tony Rapu and Pastor Del Balogun of TPH, Pastor Taiwo Odukoya and Pastor Bayo Adeyokunnu – for constantly praying with and for me. And of course to Dr. Wodajo and Dr. Miralli and their teams – who God used to operate on me successfully.
I’m thankful for life, provision and healing. Pls don’t feel bad, or msg me with any worries.
