Adesua Wellington has spoken about why she married Nigerian singer Bankole Wellington, aka Banky W. According to her, she got attracted to him because of the first impression he created.
Adesua said that she wasn’t looking out to date or marry anyone in the entertainment industry until Banky W came along and changed her perception In November 2017, Banky W and Adesua Etomi had the social media stand still for their wedding which took place in Lagos and South Africa.
About 2 months after their beautiful wedding, Adesua Wellington has spoken on why she got married to Banky W for the first time.
In a documentary titled ‘The Wellingtons’ which was aired on the television, Adesua revealed that her choice of Banky W was inspired by their first communication. Adesua and Banky In her words; “If you can make me laugh, I can almost guarantee that we are going to get along and his first message made me laugh. I wasn’t planning on getting married to anyone in the industry. And here comes this one (Banky), and he completely shattered all my plans.
But when he proposed to me, it was yes. It was an instant yes. I didn’t even think twice about it.” She went ahead to speak about why she decided to settle for a fellow entertainer in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
She said, “We are pretty much on the same page because we know what we both want, the kind of family we want. I keep emphasising the importance of memories. It wasn’t just about us getting married; it was about sharing our experience with other people. I’m glad it came to pass. I know without a shadow of a doubt he’s for me, I was more excited God gave me this person after so many months.”
To clear the air on different rumour circulation concerning when they started dating, the pair revealed that they kicked off their love affair in 2015 and succeeded in keeping it away from social media. Banky W also disclosed that they began dating after he slid into Adesua’s Dm on Instagram.
According to him, he never planned to date or marry anyone from the entertainment industry but got star struck after he realised Adesua was spiritually-filled and ‘different from other Nollywood actresses.’ He said, “I met Adesua in 2015 and after inquiring about her from her manager, Isioma, I went online to search for her and found her social media handles. I looked her up online and I liked what I saw. I googled her, stalked her on Instagram and a day or two later, I slid into her DM like the real man that I am. “I had two defining moments with Adesua.
One was before we started speaking. It was actually when I was stalking her and I saw a video of her and her childhood friends singing worship songs and I felt like this is really refreshing to find someone in our line of work that would readily show this part of them.” Speaking on what he admires about his wife, Banky W had this to say. “Another defining moment of our relationship was when we took a private trip somewhere and it was the first time that she danced with me.
And at this point, I already knew she was a spiritual girl and a praying woman. But if I can confess, I was a little bit worried that when it comes to the turn-ups and the fun, I wasn’t sure if she would be free like that. And the very first time she danced with me, they were playing Rihanna’s “Work” and she danced with me.
Ladies and Gentlemen, once you have the spiritual and physical, you close shop, you move.” “I wasn’t specifically looking for an entertainer as a wife because of what I presumed, but she took me off the balance,” he added. “I am glad I married Adesua because she understands my business and the pressure that comes with it.”
