“Why I friend-zoned my husband for over one year” – Actress Adesua Etomi

Adesua Etomi, a renowned figure in Nollywood known for her acting prowess, has revealed the motivations behind her choice to keep her now-husband, Banky Wellington, popularly recognized as Banky W, in the role of a friend for a full year before embracing a romantic relationship with him.

She made this revelation while discussing the early stage of their connection at Waterbrook Church in Lagos on Sunday, September 17.

The 35-year-old actress further explained that her initial decision to designate him as a friend stemmed from her uncertainty about God’s intentions regarding their relationship.

“I would like to say that friendship plays a very big role in laying the foundation of your relationship. I friend-zoned my husband for a year and half [laughs].

“I friend-zoned him for two reasons. One, I wasn’t sure that I have 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.”

In November 2017, the famous couple exchanged vows, and in January 2021, they celebrated the arrival of their first child.
