So Banky W’s promise of a destination wedding eventually came to pass with his white wedding in Cape Town, South Africa.
The iconic singer and his bride, Adesua Etomi, flew with friends and family to have a South African Experience for their wedding, which turned out to be one of the biggest (and BAADest) events this year.
And in the midst of all the fun, many Nigerian celebrities took time out to wish them well, give advice and for those who missed it, they extend their apologies for missing the huge event.
Wizkid, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Linda Ejiofor, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, and many others had great messages for the new couple.
Check out our compilations below:
Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde: “Dear Banky and Adesua,
After capetown, everyone leaves…it’s just you two.
My darlings if possible, stay off social media a bit.
Preserve your friendship not just your love
Even as you two have now become one, don’t forget to respect your individuality.
We love you and are rooting for your special Love.💍❤💕🌟”
Wizkid: “God bless my big bro @bankywellington and our new wife @adesuaetomi ❤️ God will bless you with happiness and abundance of Joy as u start your new life together! Missing this day is something that will forever make me sad, But this is not about me, its abt you! Enjoy ! Happiness and love forever ! ❤️❤️ #Stillwaitingonmypassport ☹️”
Ebuka Obi-Uchendu: “So beautiful!!!
May your marriage be even more beautiful than you guys are. Love you!!! #BAAD2017”
Linda Ejiofor: “She is getting married today!!!!! 😢😍❤️😬💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼. Trust me those are tears of joy.
You know I don’t usually do this, but for you I will ☺️
Adesua Etomi; soon to be “Wellington” (love the sound of that) 😬. I’m so happy for you. We have been through a lot together and to see the marvelous works God has done in your life, makes me hopeful.
4 years ago who would have thought that i would be by your side on this special day. I love you girl and can’t wait to have squishy nephews and nieces. 😉😉😉
Mr W!!! I know you will take care of my sister and I’m glad you both found each other 😘😘 ☺️😚🤗 I LOVE YOU BOTH 😢❤️ and I trust God for a happy forever after!
AY Makun: “Once upon a time there was a boy and a girl who lived in their separate world. As children they had no reason to think of meeting each other in the future… and even as they grew older they had no foresight of what God had destined to be. They independently moved beyond being just a fine boy and fine girl (slay mama) to unblock their potentials through the acquisition of Knowledge and skills in their chosen endeavours.
Today as their paths cross in the institution of marriage, I want to use this opportunity to congratulate @bankywellington and @adesuaetomi as they tie the knot in South Africa. May the good Lord bring you more achievements and sustain your marriage.”
IK Osakioduwa: “Yesterday was really lovely. I loooove LOVE. In truth, I see a lot of relationships today that lack it. But what I love even more than ‘Love’ in a relationship is ‘Friendship’. And I’m really excited to see that @bankywellington & @adesuaetomihave both. All the best guys. #BAAD2017#LoversAndFriends”
Omoni Oboli: ” @bankywellington and @adesuaetomi if you guys get any cuter, we will have to leave SM for you! We can’t take it 😩😩😩 I love you two so fiercely! 😍😍😍 What God has done for you shall be permanent! Go forth and live the rest of your very long lives in Peace, love and utter beauty! 💋💋💋”
Tony Rapu: “Dear Son,
These days many women are independent and quite successful in their own right . But always remember that even the most independent and successful woman wants the man she loves to love, honor and cherish her. To honour means to hold her in high regard and treat her like the lady she is. Make it clear to her that she is secure. She needs to know she’s worthy of your love and care. Give her your undivided attention and let her know she’s the most important thing in your life. Remember that the little things you do for her every day matter. Do remember to pray with her and for her on a regular basis.
Love you both very much.
