According to Banky W, he first met the beautiful actress in 2015 and after inquiring about her from her manager, Isioma, he went online to search for her and found her social media handles.
”I looked her up online and I liked what I saw. I googled her, stalked her on the gram and a day or two later, I slid into her DM like the real man that I am.” he said.
While Adesua who disclosed that Banky’s first message to her got her laughing said;
”if you can make me laugh, I can almost guarantee that we are going to get along and his first message made me laugh”
Speaking further on how their relationship started, Banky who disclosed that he had two defining moments about marrying Adesua when they were still dating said;
”I had two defining moments with Adesua. One was before we started speaking. It was actually when I was stalking her and I saw a video of her and her childhood friends singing worship songs and I felt like this is really refreshing to find someone in our line of work that would readily show this part of them. The second part when I knew was when we took a private trip somewhere and it was the first time that she danced with me and at this point, I already knew she was a spiritual girl and a praying woman. But if i can confess, I was a little bit worried that when it comes to the turnups and the fun, I wasnt sure if she would be free like that and the very first time she danced with me, they were playing Rihanna’s ”Work” and she danced with me. Ladies and Gentlemen, once you have the spiritual and physical, you close shop, you move”
While Adesua who disclosed that when Banky proposed to her, it was an instant Yes further said;
”It was an instant Yes. I didnt even think twice about it”
While adding that she wasn’t looking out to date or even marry anyone in the entertainment Industry but when Banky K came along, he changed her perception and made her change her decision, she said;
”I wasn’t planning on getting married to anyone in the industry … And here comes this one (Banky), and he completely shatters all my plans.”
Banky W, who also disclosed on his part that he wasn’t really looking out to date a lady from the entertainment industry, said he was a bit worried when their relationship first started but God made him understand that it is not in the career of the person but it is the the person themselves.
”I wasn’t specifically looking for an entertainer as a wife because of what I presumed, but she took me off the balance”.
While adding that he is glad he married Adesua because she understands his business and the pressure that comes with it.
The couple while speaking on their decision to have their traditional wedding in Lagos and not in Benin city, said they only opted for Lagos so as to make it convenient for everyone who wanted to be at their wedding.
”All my family members are in Lagos. Every one of them”. Adesua added.
