In a new music video, Banky W discusses his dangerous choreography with his wife.


Banky revealed that seeing his wife dance for the first time was what motivated him to write the song. He stated, “

The first time my wife danced for me inspired me. Of course, this was a few years ago. I thought to myself, “Wow, I’ve hit the jackpot!” the first time we were in that kind of personal moment. Sister, it was a different kind of dance, but it was an inspirational moment for me, and I always vowed I’d write a song about it.

Because, you know, we’re married now, and we’re in our fourth year, and sometimes it seems like marriage is something you have to endure rather than enjoy, and I’m just trying to show people that it doesn’t have to be that way. I’m in the prime of my life right now.

Banky explains how to do beautiful salsa moves:

I’ve always wanted to do a video with a Latin or Salsa theme. I’ve wanted to do it for years but never got around to it, and I’m glad I didn’t since Susu and I are in this video, woosh! What happened to the flame emoji? The flaming emoji is required. I’ve made a lot of videos in my life, but this one may be my favorite. Because there’s a lot of taste in this dish. It’s been turned. It’s switched on. It’s totally illuminated.

We didn’t have any salsa experience prior to this video, but I knew this was what I wanted to do with the song, so we found a friend of ours, Bunmi Olunloyo, who is an amazing dancer and choreographer, and we said, “Hey, give us a bootcamp,” so we rehearsed twice or three times a week for about a month.

Susu had to go off and make a movie, and I had other things to do, so we took a little pause. So when we returned, maybe a week and a half, two weeks before the video, we just practiced, practiced, practiced. To get to this point, we had to put in a lot of rehearsal time, but I’m pleased we did.

The musician, who is credited for discovering Wizkid’s ability and launching his career, also discussed the choreography portion of the music video with his wife, which is a key focus of the clip.

I guess I had to overcome my fear of dropping her while doing all those spins and tossing her in the air. She did the more difficult work since she had to flip in the air, but I have to catch you, you know. So for the first few weeks, I’d throw her up and attempt to pull her down from the sky because I was like, “Nothing can happen o, this is the mother of my child.”

On this shoot, we’re not going to have any mishaps. So it’s only a matter of mentally overcoming her fear of nothing bad happening to her. So they used to tease me about caring too much, but we did it, and I’m so proud of what we accomplished.

I may have had one or two moments where I felt a bit shaky, but my God is larger than any mishaps, so all is well that ends well, and we’re all well.
