'She said yes!' Banky W and Adesua Etomi are engaged! (read their love story)

LIB knew this was coming this morning. Remember our 'wait for it' post here? Lol. Massive congrats to the couple. Banky W writes below...
Dear Susu
We crossed paths 2 or 3 times since 2012, but I wasn't paying enough attention. Destiny was staring me right in the face and I was too caught up in my own hustle and paper chase, to know it. In June 2015 however, God brought you my way again, and this time, I really SAW you. I was smitten by your grace, aura, and beauty.
So smitten infact, that even though I didn't get to say a word to you that day (because you were seated far across the room), I immediately called my best friend @captdemuren and told him I'd found my next girlfriend. LOL. He laughed.

I asked one or two people about you.. your manager Isioma, who I'd worked with previously, and then I did some research myself. Googled you, stalked your instagram.. the whole 9 yards, and the more I found out, the more you seemed like a breath of fresh air. 

Now, I personally don't like being "hooked up", so I decided to approach you myself by sliding into your DM a few days later. Introduced myself, made some silly attempts to make you laugh, told you I planned to become your biggest fan, and asked if we could be friends. Thank God you laughed at my silly jokes, and thank God you graciously agreed to become my friend. At the time, I was COMPLETELY lying about only wanting to be friends, by the way.. but I figured it was a safe place to start. 

Since that DM, I've spoken to you pretty much every single day for almost 2 years. Sometimes, in the morning, at night and in between. We clicked instantly, and you quickly became one of my favourite people on earth, and one of my closest friends. It got to the point where my day wouldn't quite feel right without speaking to you. I needed your friendship. I needed, and still need, the bond we share. It completes me. 

I knew pretty early in the process that I wanted to spend forever with you. Prayed about it fervently. But it took you FOREVER (okay fine.. maybe a year and a half or so) to see things my way. But I kinda knew all along.. I was just waiting for you to catch up. 

In that time, I got engaged to you in my "Made For You" music video... and then by coincidence, we both got cast to get married in "The Wedding Party" movie.. but all the while we were the very best of friends. I guess, in our case, real life will now imitate art.

I'm not sure what the future will bring, but I'm completely sure that I am ready to face it with you by my side. I pray that God continues to build me into the kind of man that you deserve. I love you Susu.. I feel safe and at peace with you. You mean the world to me. Thank you for agreeing to be my lover and best friend. Thank you for agreeing to be my wife. 

PS: The timing of this may make some people think this is promo for another video, or a movie. It isn't. 
Ironically, everyone who has seen us together in art, or in life, always insists that we have amazing chemistry. I guess you can say we have been hiding in plain sight. I fell in love with an Actress. Now my life is a movie.

In February of 2017, I asked Adesua Tolulope Oluwaseun Etomi to be my wife. She said Yes.

Wow!!!

You write beautifully Banky. One of the best writers I have come across and coming from me, a writer, thats a lot. Please write a novel, a book, autobiography, biography, a movie, anything. God bless you

Congratulations. She is beautiful. I don't know her but like every other fan of Adesua, I love her right from the start. May she bring you joy all the days of your life.

Please avoid the fights, quarrels and dramas between these day celebrity couples, Don't beat or hurt her. She is a gem and so are you. treat each other with respect and love and immense tolerance. Nobody is the boss of anybody. Allow love to rule and grow

I definitely approve and my husband says the same

P:S - You ll make lovely babies....hehehe

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, look at me grinning and people starring...
This is fairytale to me, no one could guess except fans joining them together as usual.Number one lesson, keep it off the WWW.
Number 2, ask God(pray and fast), you can never go wrong.
Number 3which should be the first but less relevant than the first 2, don't push, start as FRIENDS,it's an avenue to grow and learn to know yourselves better.
I love you Banky and Adesua, you are just perfect for each other because the good Lord as made it so!

I just found two other crushes in the entertainment industry these a couple of months back and I pray one day I will celebrate them like this.I want it to be a love story as I have dreamt it in my head but I can only dream, only God has the say.shout out to them, love you both.

February till now isn't private enough

gentle said...

So banky cannot spell "marry"?

Anonymous said...

Nah am sure Adesuwa Etomi is still a virgin, that what got Banky attracted to her. That girl looks too innocent and 'll definitely love to keep herself until after marriage, my thinking though

misturah seriki said...

wow this is really great congrats to u 2

There are some things that can't be kept private o.they may keep their day to day activities after they get married private but this love story is just too sweet to be kept private.may God bless their union,I just pity Niyola...

First time commenting on lib (Albeit anonymous *smiles*) this so so beautiful! I pray God keeps and protects both of you, may you also not fall under the urge of social media validation where people feel the need to post everything including private life in Jesus name. May God continue to bless you both and keep you happy and fulfilled with one another!

Am happy for both of them.Banky W is quite a gentleman with loads of good home grooming n strong family values.Well,as with their personal lives,am quite sure they will keep their marriage away from social media! Good luck to u both!Marriage isn't really as hard as it seems or what some people portray it to be.Go in with the right attitude n with God in the middle,n y'all will be having a ball!

I'm sincerely experiencing mixed feelings about this. I'm so happy for them. But at the same time, it means that One of the eligible, elegant and well behaved men is off the market. May God bless their union. Congrats guys.

And some yeye girls were dreaming him has their husbands while he was trying to get his woman! Y'all should go for prayers fast!!!. I could tell they were dating since bcos they wouldn't stop kissing and even kissed in some part it wasn't called for... But I enjoyed it and you guys look great together which added some spice to the movie, Weldon to Banky for taking his time to pick well....God bless your marriage and shield it from evil eyes. Oai

I am so excited. The last time I felt like this was when my hubby proposed to me. My two most favourite pple in the entertainment industry ( My very own David Beckham and Victoria ). I love both and pray that God will keep the bond for all eternity. Cute and wonderful children awaits you BOTH by God's grace.
