In February 2017, Mr. Wellington popularly called “Banky W” asked Adesua Tolulope Oluwaseun Etomi to be his wife and the said Yes.
According to Mr. Capable he said, 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 am not sure of 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 Susu… I feel safe and at peace with you. You mean the world to me. Thank you for agreeing to be my lover and my best friend. Thank you for agreeing to be my wife.
Big Brother Host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu who is also his close friend congratulated him, revealing how hard it was for him to keep their relationship secret. He wrote on his Instagram page @Ebuka: ‘I can’t believe how long I had to hold this in for’.
Feels great to finally be able to shout “CONGRATULATIONS” to this beautiful couple!!! Sounds cliché but it does honestly feel like you guys were made for each other.
Also Nigerian Actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo, RMD took to his Instagram page @mofedamijo expressing joy at Banky W’s engagement and describing the couple as his babies.
RMD wrote: “Awwww… My babies, your love brings happiness to my spirit and tears of joy to my heart. I’m proud of the man you @bankywellington are and you my sweetheart @adesuaetomi are one of the few young people who give me hope in this generation.
“That both of you know Christ the way you do and love him with your hearts is such a joy. Now that we’ve gone public, let’s go wild with the wedding planning.
