“Banky W would still be my guy if you take away romance and s3x from our marriage” – Adesua Etomi

Adesua Etomi, a well-known Nollywood actress, explains why she friend-zoned her husband, Banky W, for nearly a year before finally accepting to be his wife.

On Sunday, she spoke at the Waterbrooks Church in Lagos about the early years of their relationship.

One of the reasons the mother of one had friend-zoned her husband was that she hadn’t heard from God about whether he was the right man for her at the time.

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.”

Banky W interjected: “No, leave s.x. Don’t take it away [laughs].”

You’d recall that the celebrity couple got married, in a glamorous wedding, on November 19, 2017. They birthed their first child, Hazaiah, in January 2021 and subsequently unveiled his face to the public a year later.
