BankHall – Adunni

Kindly Share This:
BankHALL as the name resonates was born Kolawole Bankole into a Yoruba-speaking family in the mid 80s, but because of his ability to coin words into new forms with ‘invisible’ poetic license while delivering rib-cracking, sarcasm-fillled punchlines, had his stage name ‘BanKol’ re-spelt as ‘BankHALL’ by fans, adding to the fact that he used to dress in ‘suits’ and matching pocket squares then, like a typical Nigerian banker from Lagos; Nigeria’s commercial nerve-centre.
BankHALL reacting to the new twist,  added a new title himself, chanting _I am BankHALL, the bank in your hall, the hall in your bank, the bank you can always count on’_ before his performances.
He is a poet, essayist, spoken word artiste, entertainer by nature, blogger and a UNILAG graduate of Accountancy. He’s the convener of SOS Poetry Slam; an annual poetry slam competition that showcases the best spoken word poets in Nigeria.
For any kind of ceremony, you can count on him for a fantastic fusion of poetry, music and dance in English and contemporary Yoruba lingua backed up with African musical instruments, saxophones.
