Many people will go home today and re-watch the Wedding Party, the Kemi Adetiba blockbuster in which Banky W and Adesua Etomi played a winsome couple.
They will be looking for signs that they missed the first time; signs that show that there was more to the magic beyond mere on-camera chemistry.
Today, in a clear case of life imitating art, Segun Demuren, Toolz’ husband and Banky W’s bestie announced via instagram that his friend had popped the question and Adesua had said yes.
And since then, neither social media nor the couple have known any peace.
Banky W is a multi-hyphenate; music mogul who discovered Wizkid and Skales, musical artist who blew up with a cover version of a Rihana song, actor who starred in the box office record breaking the Wedding Party, aspiring filmmaker and closet dweeb who once took Reuben Abati to the cleaners.
He has battled, for years, with insinuations about his sexuality and his announcement of a relationship would definitely put paid to such insidious rumours.
Adesua Etomi is a rising Nollywood star who is adept both on stage and in film with critically acclaimed roles in the Wedding Party as well as in Falling, for which she won an AMVCA award.
Adesua according to her wikipedia page the last of three siblings and holds a Bachelors degree in Drama and Performance from The University of Wolverhampton as well as a diploma in Performing Arts, Musical & Physical Theatre from The City College in Coventry, United Kingdom.
