There seem to be disappointment and despair at Nigerian singer and actor Olubankole Wellington who is popularly known as Banky W's camp.

The singer had lost his second attempt in becoming the House of Representatives of the people of Eti-Osa and some people have attributed the singer's defeat to contesting under the wrong political party which happens to be the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

A Twitter user identified as Firstladyship, tweeted that Banky W's defeat was as a result of sailing with the wrong boat.

She said the singer sinned the moment he joined PDP when he was supposed to join the Labour Party instead.

She wrote: "Banky W lost to Peter Obi. Joining the PDP, & not having the liver & the foresight to join LP was his Original Sin. PDP has never flipped Lagos State, since 1999. Being a smart politician is knowing when to JOIN A MASSIVE MOVEMENT. Banky is good but he sailed with the wrong boat."

See comments the tweet generated:

IamRapulu: "campaigned more than Banky, if you disagree check the Instagram page of the two. So when una say Banky W is good, I beg to ask the question, HOW?"

Daphne459: "Personally, I don't think he would make a good representative. He has not been able to convince me why I should vote for him. Asides, from being a celebrity what is the peculiar thing he has done to earn my vote?"

biggsalt: "Banky was campaigning in banana Island while he was campaigning in the nook and crannies of Eti-osa."

ENGR_IDA_STEVE: "He is a good man indeed but in a wrong party"

LegacyNgLimited: "The will of the people prevailed. A whole Ndudi Elumelu also lost to Peter Obi in Delta State as well. Peter Obi has retired a whole lot of them from the National Assembly."
