MOVIE actress and producer, Adesua Etomi-Wellington has opened up on putting Banky Wellington, aka Banky W, in the friend zone for 18 months before accepting to marry him.
The TV screen goddess made it known that she put him in the friend zone for a year and a half because she was waiting to hear from God at the time, and because she wanted to develop her friendship with him.
Speaking during service at the Waterbrooks Church, Lagos, on Sunday, Adesuwa Etomi said, as quoted by Dailypost. ng, “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, 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 a half 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.”
Banky W and Adesua Etomi got married on November 19, 2017, and welcomed their first son, Hazaiah, in January 2021.
