Banky W & Adesuwa Etomi! You've Just Broken The Internet!!!!!!

Banky said.....

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.

And then Adesuwa said.....

I went to an event in 2015 and I suppose that was the beginning of something amazing because once banky saw me, he decided that he was going to be my biggest fan.
He slid into my DM and sent the funniest message and that was how we became friends. At the time, I wasn’t interested in anything but a friendship and he was very respectful of that and so we stayed just friends for about a year and a half.

Our friendship opened my eyes to a lot of things. Opened my eyes to the type of man Olubankole is and WHAT A MAN. WHAT A MIGHTY GOOD MAN.

Olubankole, Your Heart is pure and good, to the very core. You are proof that God is real, you are proof that what’s on the inside is greater and so much more powerful than what we see on the outside and you are the evidence of what I hoped for. I bless God for entrusting my heart in your hands because I know it’s safe. You are everything i prayed for and so much more.

Thank you for praying with me, fasting with me, always making time for me, laughing with me, and caring more about me than yourself. Thank you for being kind, loving and full of Integrity.
And i’d like to say one more thing. I’m SO SORRY that it took me sooo long to realise that it was you. It has always been you. It couldn’t have been anyone else.

In February 2017, you said you couldn’t be without me and asked me to be your wife and I said YES cause I can’t be without you.

It will be an absolute pleasure and one of the greatest blessings of my life to walk the path of life with you.

Thank you for being who you are.
My goodluck charm, my King, my lover, my bestfriend.
I love you till eternity and beyond.
No, This Is not a movie.
Future Mrs W.

Oh wow! Isn't this the sweetest thing you've ever read?

Don't you think these two look perfect together? 

A huge congratulations to them. Love is such a beautiful thing. ❤️❤️❤️

Ps, Don Jazzy over to you 😂😅🙈

BTW who ever saw this coming?



  1. Marriage is beyond looking perfect together, please understand this cos you are old enough to Thelma.
    I wish them a wonderfully married life, such great news.

    1. Na wetin Thelma do you?

      There are better ways of passing your message across without sounding condescending...

    2. Smh... take cold milk 🥛

  2. Banky big head. Really dint see it coming but it's cool they both feel same way for each other!
    Wish them all the best n we don't want to hear stories tmrw o...

  3. I did saw it coming, they were so good together in the wedding party movie. Big congratulations to them❤

  4. Mehn... I'm jealous o 😚. I miss being in a relationship. All my options currently are 🤑. All they have to show is their money, and I know they are not serious.

    On my part, I'm scared of commitment. I know I want a relationship but the commitment freaks me out. And then, I'm scared I may end up being the only one in love only to find out he lied about his feelings.
    Hmm... I think I'm confused. 😢

    1. U will be fine sugar, I know that feeling. E hugs. Maybelline

    2. I don't think you're confused, I think you're overthinking it. Just relax and go with the flow but set boundaries and lower (manage) your expectations in order to protect yourself. Relationships are the sweetest thing ever when both parties genuinely care for each other so don't miss out on something good simply because you don't know tomorrow. Not all relationships will end up in marriage, some are learning curves. In all, I'm wishing you good things.

    3. Thank you Maybelline and Thelma.

  5. Been off the grid so I have no idea what is going on but this looks like good news.
    A Girl

    1. A Girl come and write a post for me. Pretty please 😚

  6. Instagram is flooded with pictures of these two, they shaa just wanted to shock us, I kinda saw it coming but not so soon, have been feeling super excited since I saw it on Bankys page this morning. I wish them Welland I hope stories that touch won't come up. PS, their kids will look really amazing, two fine parent. Lol. Maybelline

  9. I love love. These two sure look good together and they give us hope that there are still some celebs that have their heads screwed right. Banky and Adesuwa, pls as you kept SM away from d dating stage, pls also keep SM from the marriage. The only thing I want to see on SM are your wedding pictures, and celebration of special events in your lives, like birthdays, awards, random pix of your kids when they start coming. Biko no private info of you two on SM. I hear and see that vultures are in uncountable numbers dere, looking for who to devour especially marriages oooo.

  10. I'm really happy for these two. God provide a boo o😩😩

  11. In all sincerity I really wished for this to happen. And now that they finally made it, I'm just so happy for them. And I don't know them personally, chai love is sweet o. Love killi me I die.

  12. The more excited people right now are those who wld be hoping they be on her bridal train.(if you cannor Marry Banky, you wee have to settle to be in the wedding pictures and the wedding party)

  13. Awwww, that sweet feeling of being in Love, i couldn't have wanted more for them both. they are both good people. Wish them all the best.

  14. Lol@Sasha bone.
