– Popular Nigerian R&B singer Banky W celebrates his parents’ 40th wedding anniversary – He shares lovely moments of the anniversary ceremony – The celebrated singer captions his own marriage in few words and gives relationship advices The name Bankole Wellington also known as Banky W is a name to be reckoned with in almost every Nigerian setting. This is not just because the bearer of the name is a well acclaimed musician that dazzles the music lovers with beautifully scripted love songs, but because he has set quite a standard for marriage that has no antecedent in the entertainment industry. Banky W’s highly celebrated marriage to Adesua Etomi Wellington was really one that many believed was made in heaven. It would seem the love singer didn’t just learn the ropes of marriage in a day, he had good teachers from whom he had been learning from all his life. These were none other than his parents.
Only recently, Banky W shared tidbits from the wedding anniversary ceremony of his parents who were celebrating 40 years of togetherness. The video shared by Mr. Capable himself showed his father George Bankole Wellington and his wife who is often referred to as Momma W. by her children rocking the dance floor like they knew how to.
Bankole who is one of the five children the couple had was especially grateful for the fact that the ceremony came to life with his music as many danced to the tune of his song: “It’s a nice feeling having my folks dance to my song on their 40th anniversary”
The Nigerian born singer who spent an ample time in the USA beamed with smiles as he danced exclusively with his mom who is from Calabar in Cross River state. Many friends and members of his large family came in their numbers to celebrate the occasion.
The thriving actor who also recently hosted the One Africa show also took time out on his Instagram page to talk about his marriage and the journey so far: “The journey of marriage isn’t always easy, but with the right person, every step ends up worth it. If there’s one thought I’d like for people to take away, it’s that… Nobody’s perfect, but you can be perfect for each other – you just have to find someone worth trying for. Run after her, then run with her, until you conquer “forever” together. And while you attempt to do this, don’t forget to have some fun.”
