NOT TO BE BROADCAST
We were all pleasantly surprised recently when self-acclaimed king of R and B Banky W and prolific actress Adesua Etomi, took to their Instagram pages to announce what may go down as the biggest Nigerian love story of 2017.
Initially, many perceived it as a publicity stunt for the sequel of The Wedding Party: A highly rated romantic comedy where our new lovebirds coincidentally starred as a couple. But a deeper look at their messages, showed it was far from a joke.
(See video below and continue reading!)
With a picture to match, both their messages spoke of they met, their one-year and half long friendship, how it eventually snowballed into romance, how and what they feel for each other and how they look forward to spending a lifetime together.
Although the proposal happened in February 2017, only a few close friends of the couple were in the know. The likes of Lynxxx and Wizkid took to their social media pages to slightly brag about their prior knowledge of the engagement. Whateverrr lmao…
The issue has since caused quite a rave on social media with a fan asking Wizkid when his own turn will be. Don jazzy even got pranking about it, Asking Linda Ikeji if she wanted to costar in a romantic movie with him.
A certain school of thought believe that the public fanfare was unnecessary especially because celebrity marriages have been badly profiled over the years.
Ironically, this news comes as a breath of fresh air especially because the entertainment industry has been saturated with couples fighting dirty and even worse airing it on social media.
Anyway, we wish them all the best as we look forward to turning up at what might also be the biggest celebrity wedding of the decade.
Congratulations Banky W and Adesua!
