Adesua Etomi-Wellington, a Nollywood actress, has confessed that she “friend-zoned” her husband, singer Bankole Wellington, aka Banky W, for a year and a half before accepting his marriage proposal.
On Sunday, the thespian spoke at the Waterbrooks Church in Lagos.
She claimed that one of the reasons she “friend-zoned” him was that she hadn’t heard from God at the time.
She said, “I would like to say that friendship plays a very big role in laying the foundation of your relationship. For a year and a half, I friend-zoned my spouse [laughs].
“I friend-zoned him for two reasons. One, I wasn’t sure that I had heard from God about whether this person was actually my person. Actually, three reasons. Second, marrying Banky W [laughs]. I was like, ‘My life on my own is chaotic enough, I would now marry Banky? No, no, no.’
“And then thirdly, just trying to at least have a friendship. And I honestly believe that the friendship we laid over a year and half has played a very big role in how our relationship is today. Banky W is my guy. I mean if you take away romance and sex and everything that makes a marriage, he would still be my guy. Banky is my best friend.”
Banky W: “No, leave sex. Don’t take it away [laughs].”
