It is no longer news that Celebrated musician, Banky W, and actress Adesua Etomi are currently in high spirits as they are engaged.
The revelation on Wednesday came as a pleasant surprise to many people, but a lot of them – including celebrities – have applauded and congratulated the duo.
Banky W had let the cat out of the bag in the following soulful letter to his lover:
We crossed paths two or three times since 2012, but I wasn’t paying enough attention. Destiny was staring me right in the face and I was too caught up in my own hustle and paper chase, to know it. In June 2015, however, God brought you my way again, and this time, I really SAW you. I was smitten by your grace, aura, and beauty.
“So smitten, in fact, that even though I didn’t get to say a word to you that day (because you were seated far across the room), I immediately called my best friend @captdemuren, and told him I’d found my next girlfriend. LOL. He laughed.
“I asked one or two people about you, your manager Isioma, who I’d worked with previously, and then I did some research myself. Googled you, stalked your Instagram; the whole nine yards, and the more I found out, the more you seemed like a breath of fresh air.
“Now, I personally don’t like being “hooked up”. So, I decided to approach you myself by sliding into your DM a few days later. Introduced myself, made some silly attempts to make you laugh, told you I planned to become your biggest fan, and asked if we could be friends.
Thank God you laughed at my silly jokes, and thank God you graciously agreed to become my friend. At the time, I was completely lying about only wanting to be friends, by the way. But I figured it was a safe place to start.
“Since that DM, I’ve spoken to you pretty much every single day for almost two years. Sometimes, in the morning, at night and in between. We clicked instantly, and you quickly became one of my favourite people on earth, and one of my most intimate friends. It got to the point where my day wouldn’t quite feel right without speaking to you. I needed your friendship. I needed, and still need, the bond we share. It completes me.
“I knew pretty early in the process that I wanted to spend forever with you. Prayed about it fervently. But it took you forever (okay, fine, maybe a year and a half or so) to see things my way. But I kinda knew all along, I was just waiting for you to catch up.
“In that time, I got engaged to you in my “Made For You” music video… and then, by 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.”
