Banky W’s wife, Adesua Etomi says it wasn’t easy playing a pregnant woman in the Wedding Party 2 because she knew a lot of women would watch and they could come after her if she didn’t do it well.
Speaking at the private screening of the movie in Lekki, Lagos, she stated, “I have never been pregnant before, but I have been opportune to be around pregnant women in the past and I did a lot of research about them too. I did a lot of work trying to project that effectively because people who have been pregnant before would know If I didn’t do it well.”
According to her, when she saw the script of Wedding Party 2, she didn’t feel it was the same storyline as Part 1.
She said, “I am really excited about the Wedding Party 2 because the script is well written. The relationships were brought back in a clever way. New relationships were established and old relationships were given a different angle.
“I don’t think it was a repetition of Part 1 because it is in a different direction in terms of people who got married. The movie is not a class, we are not here to teach or preach, but some of the topics touched are universal such as relationships from different backgrounds
“We are not saying getting married from different backgrounds is bad; we are saying it can happen and it is great. Love is love regardless of the way it comes. I think we are focusing more on the solution rather than the problem.”
Based on records, Adesua insisted that Wedding Party was the biggest movie in Nigeria so far and she was proud to be part of it.
