Actress Adesua Etomi-Wellington, has revealed that she “friend-zoned” her husband, singer Banky W, for more than one year before finally accepting his marriage proposal.
Adesua Etomi spoke during Sunday service at the Waterbrooks Church, Lagos.
She said one of the reasons she “friend-zoned” Banky was because she was yet to hear from God.
She said, “I would like to say that friendship plays a very big role in laying the foundation of your relationship. I friend-zoned my husband for a year and half [laughs].
“I friend-zoned him for two reasons. One, I wasn’t sure that I have 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.’
“And then thirdly, just trying to at least have a friendship. And I honestly believe that the friendship we laid over a year and half 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.”
Singer Banky W inferred: “No, leave sex. Don’t take it away [laughs].”
Singer Banky W and actress Adesua Etomi tied the knot on November 19, 2017, in a star-studded ceremony. They welcomed their first son, Hazaiah, in January 2021.
