No lies or pretence! This is the best news Nigerians have received since Anthony Joshua knocked out Wladimir Klitschko to win the heavyweight title almost a week ago.
There was no way to prepare for what looks like the most beautiful love story to come out of Nigeria in 2017. Nigerians are genuinely happy to receive the news of Banky W and Adesua Etomi’s engagement and the goodwill messages have been rolling in from all quarters.
For the purpose of this article, we’ll stick to the reactions of celebrities who are in the same circle as the couple and who apparently knew about the engagement long before the couple decided to break it earlier today.
Banky W’s best friend, Tunde Demuren
Tolu ‘Toolz’ Oniru
When God says Yes, nobody can say no! My Banky, my one and only Banky, you are one of the sweetest, kindest and honest people I have ever met. In the time I have known you, you have proven to be someone who always knows what he wants and gets it with all determination. Let me tell you, you did not fail in case. You were brave and took this bold step many always seem to run away from. Omo mi, my Adesua, I remember the conversation we had about finding 'the one'. Funny thing is I saw this happening after seeing you both together on set. I am not sure what it was, but i was moved. I just decided to keep it to myself and simply pray for you. May God bless your union. As you both join thogether, you become stronger, greater and incredible forces. May you always find joy and solace in one another. No one and I repeat NO one shall ever get in the midst of both of you. You shall bless nations with this union. You shall inspire the world with your union. You shall live in eternal happiness for the rest of your lives. Most of all, the love you share for one another shall ever flourish in the name of Jesus! Amen!!! I am so happy for you my darlings! Congratulations to you both. I love youuuu ?❤ Cc: @bankywellington @adesuaetomi P.S Panla stew on deck!

Awwww… My babies, your love brings happiness to my spirit and tears of joy to my heart. I'm proud of the man you @bankywellington are and you my sweetheart @adesuaetomi are one of the few young people who give me hope in this generation. That both of you know Christ the way you do and love him with your hearts is such a joy. Now that we've gone public, let's go wild with the wedding planning ?? Papa bear is proud of you both. God bless this union.
THE KING HS FINALLY UNVEILED HIS QUEEN! GOD IS WITH YOU BRO, YOU'VE GOT THIS. #TOPSECRET #COMMITTEEOFSECRETKEEPERS #SIGH?. SH??T! NOW I HAVE NO EXCUSE ANYMORE??? #Repost @bankywellington with @repostapp ・・・ Dear Susu (part II) In that time, I got engaged to you in my "made for you" music video… and by pure coincidence, we both got cast to get married in the wedding party movie.. but all the while we were the very best of friends. I guess, in our case, real life will now imitate art. I'm not sure what the future will bring, but I'm completely sure that I am ready to face it with you by my side. I pray that God continues to build me into the kind of man that you deserve. I love you Susu.. I feel safe and at peace with you. You mean the world to me. Thank you for agreeing to be my lover and best friend. Thank you for agreeing to be my wife. PS: The timing of this may make some people think this is promo for another video, or a movie. It isn't. Ironically, everyone who has seen us together in art, or in life, always insists that we have amazing chemistry. I guess you can say we have been hiding in plain sight. I fell in love with an Actress. Now my life is a movie. In February of 2017, I asked Adesua Tolulope Oluwaseun Etomi to be my wife. She said Yes.
MY BOY DID IT!!!! I knew it was coming 'Cos I saw the way they were together, even though they were using style to hide ? You can't hide that type of chemistry. I remember the day I teased him about it and he didn't flinch. In fact, I was taken aback as I had never heard him speak of anyone the way he did of @adesuaetomi and I'm so stupid happy he's behaved himself ? and didn't let her get away ❤️So happy for you both. Too STUPID Happy!!! ?????? #Banksua2017Or2018 YES!!! ?? @bankywellington
