Adesua Etomi Husband, Banky W and Adesua Etomi
The love story of Banky W and Adesua Etomi is one written in a script. What was believed to remain an on-screen romance set Nigerian romance ablaze in April of 2017, when the couple announced their engagement, nobody even knew they were dating. With a long epistle caption on Instagram, Banky W narrated how it all started in the twitter DM. A friendship blossomed into love.
The release of the promotional photos for the film The Wedding Party had the audience thinking Banky W and Adesua Etomi secretly tied the knot. At the time, the fans did not know about the hit film coming their way in December of 2016. The film was a public favourite and the nation grew more and more in love with the pair. In February of 2017, the Banky W and Adesua Etomi love story was sealed with a proposal, however, it remained a secret until May of that same year when the pair broke the internet with the news.
All it took was an Instagram post or two from the lovebirds. It is not news who Adesua Etomi’s husband is, he is Bankole ‘Bank W’ Wellington, a well-known singer, songwriter, producer, director and record label executive, founder of EME. The couple had met a few times since 2012 but never paid much mind to each other. 2015 was the year things changed as they were both at the same industry event but were sat a distance from each other. Banky W noticed Adesua Etomi but couldn’t approach her at the time.
He told his friend he had found his new girlfriend, a prophetic joke to which they both laughed, who knew. After much investigation among friends, manager and social media about the beautiful actress, Banky W decided to slide into her DM (Direct Message). The relationship started out with them being just friends, but the talented singer knew he felt more, he respected her desires still.
In those two years, they waxed stronger and stronger, prayed together, laughed together and cried together. Adesua Etomi acknowledged that she wished she had seen it sooner, that Banky W was her ideal man and thanked God for a man like him. In no fewer romantic words, Banky W let the world know he loves her with all his heart.
The couple’s introduction took place in May 2017 in Lagos, Nigeria, with their close friends and family in attendance. It was a burgundy affair. The wedding hashtag #BAAD2017 was by far the longest trending wedding hashtag in Nigeria and perhaps one of the most searched. The wedding was a better film than The Wedding Party, that fans couldn’t tell what was coming and when it was coming.
In November 2017, the traditional wedding took place in Lagos and with numerous celebrities in attendance. The guests attended the wedding as though it was a red-carpet event and the bride’s outfits rolled heads both online and offline. Fashion illustrators wasted no time in digitalising them.
A week later, the white wedding took place in Cape Town, South Africa on the 25th of November 2017. The ceremony was followed by a holiday in South Africa with their close friends, the fans and the media couldn’t get enough of it.
