Love Life: Who is Adesua Hubby/Husband/Spouse? BANKY W
Banky found Adesua Etomi he happen to see her childhood video while she was singing wordship song with her friends. Banky W said after he said he was the first person to DM Adesua Etomi, he 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 turn ups and the fun, I wasn’t 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.
