Kemi Adetiba later debunked the rumours, stating that they were just close friends and had no single strings attached. According to her, she and Banky W have been friends for a long time and he had never shown any sign of being attracted to her.
Banky is like my brother, even though we are not close anymore, we’ve never dated and I don’t think he has ever found me attractive. It is so weird when people say we are compatible. It is understandable why people group us, we travel a lot and above all, I have a working relationship with his label now because I work with one of his signees, Niyola.
