Banky W’s “Running After U” Music Video is a Celebration of Married Life
Fresh of the oven, Banky W is out with a new song and a video to it titled Running After U. If you have followed Banky’s music career, you will understand that the underlying messages in his songs is always about young people finding true love. Now he has taking it a notch higher with this song which basically talks about love and loving a married life. Running After U features Nonso Amadi.
Talking about the song, he says:
Do you ever think about the fact that there aren’t too many celebrations of Married life on Music Television? There’s a lot of hooking up and twerking, there’s a lot of consummating and flirting, and there are a whole lot of proposals-and-wedding day music videos… but there aren’t too many celebrations of the married life that comes afterward.
In the “Running After U” song, I tried to tell the story of how my wife and I got together. And so 24 hours before we shot the video, I decided I wanted to use the video to celebrate the journey of marriage. And so I drastically altered the original casting plans last minute, and called up all my married friends who were in town, to come hang out on set, have some fun together, and celebrate the decision to attempt this thing called life together.
The journey of marriage isn’t always easy, but with the right person, every step ends up worth it. If there’s one thought I’d like for people to take away, it’s that… Nobody’s perfect, but you can be perfect for each other – you just have to find someone worth trying for. Run after her, then run with her, until you conquer “forever” together. And while you attempt to do this, don’t forget to have some fun.
