Adesua Etomi reveals how she first ‘friend-zoned’ Banky W

Banky W and Adesua Etomi got married on November 19, 2017, in Cape Town. They welcomed their first son, Hazaiah, in January 2021.


The Wedding Party star, Adesua Etomi-Wellington revealed that she “friend-zoned” her husband, singer Bankole Wellington, aka Banky W, for a year and a half before finally accepting his marriage proposal.

“And then thirdly, just trying to at least have a friendship. And I honestly believe that the friendship we laid over a year and a half [ago] has played a very big role in how our relationship is today. Banky W is my guy. I mean if you take away romance and sex and everything that makes a marriage, he would still be my guy. Banky is my best friend.” The star noted.

“I friend-zoned him for two reasons. One, I wasn’t sure that I {had] heard from God about whether this person was actually my person. Actually, three reasons. Second, marrying Banky W [laughs]. I was like, ‘My life on my own is chaotic enough, I would now marry Banky? No, no, no.’

She said one of the reasons she “friend-zoned” him was because she had not heard from God at that time.
