The multi-talented singer now actor has shocked Nigerians as he proposes to heartthrob and takes her home to meet his mother and other family members.
According to Mr Capable’s brothers Temi Wellington, who shared a photo of Adesua and Banky visiting the singer’s family and the fun photo they took on Wednesday, May 3.
He captioned the photo:
“So, so happy for you guys! May God bless your union. Also happy that you finally made this public so I can stop lying about why I’ll be in Lagos ”
To confirm this Banky Wellington announce today his intention to marry Adesua Etomi, his best friend on the social media.
”In February of 2017, I asked Adesua Tolulope Oluwaseun Etomi to be my wife. She said Yes. 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 by pure 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.
Meanwhile, actress Sola Sobowale who starred in The Wedding Party as Adesua’s mum and Bany W’s mother-in-law took to her Instagram page to congratulate the couple and say a prayer for them.
“When God says Yes, nobody can say no!
My Banky, my one and only Banky, you are one of the sweetest, kindest and honest people I have ever met. In the time I have known you, you have proven to be someone who always knows what he wants and gets it with all determination. Let me tell you, you did not fail in case. You were brave and took this bold step many always seem to run away from.
Omo mi, my Adesua, I remember the conversation we had about finding ‘the one’. Funny thing is I saw this happening after seeing you both together on set. I am not sure what it was, but I was moved. I just decided to keep it to myself and simply pray for you.
May God bless your union. As you both join together, you become stronger, greater and incredible forces. May you always find joy and solace in one another. No one and I repeat NO one shall ever get in the midst of both of you. You shall bless nations with this union. You shall inspire the world with your union. You shall live in eternal happiness for the rest of your lives. Most of all, the love you share for one another shall ever flourish in the name of Jesus! Amen!!! I am so happy for you my darlings! Congratulations to you both. I love youuuu ❤ Cc: @bankywellington @adesuaetomi
P.S Panla stew on deck!”
