Your plant looks like some of mine........No worries.

Some things you can do while the plant is deciding what to do do is..... repot it with new lighter soil.

Youtube offers many informative videos to help you grow your plants..

Mine do the same thing. Stem rots from outside in. Know clue why. My guess is too much water while inside. Pups seem fine and grow fast.

Another testamony here LOL Mine rotted while looking like that back in late winter. It sent about 4 pups up which are doing just fine. This may not be useful for banana grower in warmer climates but here it helps. If you can try to let the soil dry up a little. Let the roots dig in and search for a bit more water.
Hopefully it's getting a little more light then that now. Keep us posted if it changes.
