Biography

“I don’t want to imitate anyone; I just want to do me. That’s why my key aim in my career is to be as successful as I can be.” – Benny Banks

Growing up in Islington (North London) Benny Banks, was your typical teenager; in that he didn’t enjoy school and would much rather do other things with his time. One of these things was listening to music. It wasn’t until age twenty however, that his love of music really began to develop. It was after a night out with his friends that Benny Banks began to rap and his talent first got noticed. From this point on, his interest in music grew, as did his popularity and with that came opportunity.

In 2010, Benny took part in 1Xtra’s ‘Fire in The Booth’ with artist Charlie Sloth and was stunned by the audience reaction. Not only did his undeniable talent amaze listeners but he was then requested to take part in more interviews and videos with various other respected urban channels. His ‘Warm Up Session’ with the massive urban online channel SBTV, blew people away and one might say that this was when he was truly recognised as a force to be reckoned with within the UK urban industry. Aside from his success with 1Xtra and SBTV, Benny has also worked with the likes of ‘Grime Daily’ , he debuted on sites ‘ZEETVD’ and ‘UK Overstood’ and in Jan 2011 he started his own youtube channel. His solo Videos on YouTube have accumulated well over 2 million views, thus the numbers alone are enough to reflect the mass recognition of this young star’s talent and demonstrate the love by fans of his powerful music and his meaningful yet relatable lyrics.
