The Wedding Party Movie Comes Alive As Banky-W Announces His Engagement To Adesua Etomi

Whoop Whoop, Yasssss these two are now officially engaged and NO it is not a media stunt. 

Infact they have been engaged since February but just letting the entire public in now. 

It’s not a means to make you guys go watch The Wedding Party 2 when it comes out. There’s no need for that actually because part 1 was a huge success and y’all will go see part 2 because of that. 

This is real guy’s. Stop suspecting everything. Lol. I’m so happy for the two of them. Huge congrats to them. Find below Banky’s letter to Adesuwa aka Susu:


Dear Susu

We crossed paths 2 or 3 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 infact, 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 9 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 2 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 closest 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.
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.

Breaking: Movie Producer Chineylove Eze Lashes Out On Actress Lilian Esoro’s Estranged Hubby, Ubi Franklin

EMR Boss Omonike Fowowe Speaks Up On Social Media Bullying & Negativity

Omonike Fowowe is the CEO of EMR Group of Companies ranging from Property Development to Marketing Strategy to Public Relations & Media. 

She took to her Instagram page to share her thoughts on social media bullying and negativity:

I am so happy people like Nike are coming out to speak on things like this. I share 100% the same view. I do not believe in pulling people down just because i want to remain in the news or trend or drag traffic to myself. I will use myself as an example, this blog is 72, 000people strong and i have no intention whatsoever to increase that population based on negative news. What will keep increasing the blog is the same interesting and creative entertainment news which has built it from 1person to 72, 000people.
