Nigeria singer and rapper, Banky W reveals in an interview how he was able to overcome p0rn addiction.
Speaking about the vices that plagued him during the early days of his music career, the actor said he overcame p0rn addiction and promiscuity by filling a “God void” he long had.
According to him, he had struggled with feelings of emptiness, despite having amassed wealth and running a successful music label.
“In the eyes of the world I was a successful artiste, but I still felt empty and wretched.”
“There were things I was struggling with on a personal basis. Everything from promiscuity to pornography — just real things that people struggled with on a personal basis.
“This is now getting to areas where one feels that one is in bondage and one is trying to clean oneself.
“So you are just stuck in this place of feeling far from God, feeling separated from God. Feeling that I have made a little bit of money but I am still not happy.
“I have been fortunate to be able to do what I love for a living for a long time. I am grateful for the small success we have experienced in music, in film, in other ventures. But there is what I call a God-shaped void inside every man.
“Until you start to fill that void with God, you will find that you will come up short regardless of what success you have or how successful or happy you may seem in the eyes of the world.
“There is an emptiness you feel when you are disconnected from that source. It is a purpose thing, not a pay thing. It’s a meaning thing, not about money. That’s why you see some of these billionaires commit suicide.”
