Banky W Reveals The Incredible Thing Basketmouth Did For Him During His Battle With Cancer


Banky W has taken to his Instagram page to tell the story of what Basketmouth did for him when he was suffering from cancer.
Basketmouth, a foremost Nigerian comedian turned a year older today and Banky W took told the story to celebrate him.
According to Banky W, Basketmouth was an unexpected 'ray of sunshine' when he was suffering in severe pain from cancer. He revealed that the comedian came to him with loads of apple juice, made him laugh and forget his pain.
Read his story below:
"Almost a year ago, I was recovering from Cancer surgery in the US. It was a trying time for me.. for weeks I could barely move, I had tubes running out of my back draining blood, I was on so many pain meds and even then EVERYthing still hurt like hell.
"And one day out of the blue, @basketmouth called me to see how I was doing. He knew I was in the US but I hadn't told him about the surgery. We'd been friends for a long time, so when he sensed something was up, I told him what I was dealing with.
"Now at the time, he was on tour, while also visiting/caring for his family.. but as soon as he heard the details, he insisted on coming to visit me the next day before flying to Texas. He asked if I needed anything and I said no, but he kept insisting that there must be some groceries in Momsie's house that were finished, or something that I needed from the store that he could bring.
"He wouldn't take no for an answer so I said okay, pls bring me a bottle of apple juice. My brother got a friend to drive him almost an hour out of their way, and showed up at the front door with like 3 months worth of apple juice. I kid you not. The bottles were MASSIVE.
"And then he sat with me for a couple hours, before his flight. We talked, he made me laugh, we compared testimonies and war stories, and just spent time catching up. We encouraged each other, and in a period where almost every day was incredibly painful, rough and downright depressing, he was an unexpected ray of sunshine that made me feel so much better.
"So today I want to thank him for being my friend especially when I really needed one. Sometimes, that strong person who everyone leans on, needs someone to lean on too. He's one of the most gifted & accomplished entertainers I've ever met.. but more importantly, he's one of the kindest.
"May God bless you and reward you for all you do for others. May your back never be weary from the loads you bear. May your children be greater than you are. May the rest of your years be the best of your years. May your show at EKO HOTEL ON THE 29TH AND 30TH OF SEPT BE SOLD OUT. Honoured to call you my friend. Happy birthday bro."

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…
