‘I ignored Drake’s DM for Banky W’ – Adesua Etomi reveals

As seen on TNS

We had an exclusive interview with talk-of-the-town Nollywood star Adesua Etomi about her engagement to Banky W.

Here’s how it went.

ME: Hi Adesua. Congratulations!

ADESUA: Thanks ‘Segun. I saw all the posts you guys did about our engagement. That’s why I thought I should grant TNS this exclusive interview. The first since our announcement.

ME: And you won’t regret it.

[Adesua’s phone rings. It’s Banky W. She has his name stored as Olubankole teminikan. She asks for permission and picks]

ADESUA: [grinning] Hi babe… Yeah, I’m good. I’m with ‘Segun… The dude from TNS… Yeah… I miss you too… I can’t wait to kiss that you on the head…[giggles]… Muah… I love you too baby… See ya later… You’re going to be at Ebuka’s abi?… Yeah, I’m coming… Bye [ends call]

ADESUA: Sorry about that ‘Segun. It was my baby.

ME: [pretending] You’re a baby mama too? You did a very good job of hiding it…

ADESUA: Banky jor. Banky…my baby. Weren’t you listening to the conversation?

ME: Oh, sorry. Okay, so, how did you feel when Banky slid into your DM?

ADESUA: [giggles] It was magical. He made me laugh. He said something about his head and how an airplane can land on it.

ME: [aside] He should have just changed his nickname to MM3.

ADESUA: You said?

ME: Nothing. I just remembered I didn’t feed my chicken this morning before leaving the house.

ADESUA: [laughs] You’re almost funny.

ME: Some people say even though they do not doubt that both of you are engaged, they think the photo he put out was a photo shoot, not the actual proposal photo.


ME: They say you were too composed. Like he already sent you a DM the day before that he was going to propose the next day. They say, not me of course, that it looked too much that there was a director for the shoot. Why didn’t you swoon?

ADESUA: No jor. Banky is such a sweet fellow. I knew he would not drag his feet about where we were going with what we had.

ME: Shots fired!


ME: [coughs] No one. But no matter how hard I looked at that picture, I didn’t see any gold in it.

ADESUA: [laughs] You cheeky bastard. I see what you did there.

[We high-five each other]

ME: Is it true that you turned down Falz for Banky W?


ME: We also heard you ignored an American for Banky W. True?


ME: Who?

ADESUA: Drake.

ME: Drake? Which Drake? What does he do?

ADESUA: Same Drake. The American star. The one that did the song with Wizkid.

ME: Ahdonbelieveit!!!

ADESUA: Well, I ignored his DM. He sent me a DM two days before Banky proposed.

ME: And you didn’t reply?

ADESUA: Nah. I couldn’t do that to my baby.

ME: Issalie, Susu.

ADESUA: Issatrue, ‘Segun.

ME: My chwest! Apostle must hear this.

Congratulations to Adesua Etomi and Banky W.

May your union be blessed.

To those who believe this conversation took place in any other place apart from my head, President Buhari is hale and hearty and the only reason we haven’t been seeing him is because The Presidency heard that Jack Bauer is coming to Nigeria. Lol!

    And so many funny words oh

    • Madam did u read d last paragraph after d intetview??? In the writer’s words “To those of you who think this interview took place in anyother place except in my head……” This simply means d interview didnt even take place at all, it was all a figment of his imagination… Y not read nd digest an information before pointing fingers???

  8. And the innocent Drake doesn’t know what’s happening on, yet someone wishes to vet he’s attention by saying yeah, watin u get pass Nicki or RiRi, that Drake would want a dry person like u. Marry Banky and keep quite

  9. the same people will praise you, the same people will criticize you, my dear just let the past be past n face your marriage… may God help you so that your marriage will last IJN

  10. You allowed me waste my data to read an interview that was never held? Una no well at all….as for the much talked about #bankyadesuwa I hope it won’t end like others?

  11. You guys should let the new couples be ok.. whatever the blogger wrote there is not true. besides there wasn’t any interview so stop comparing their marriage to other celebrities

  12. … Did you even read the post? The post is not true just a fiction as the writer said it all happened in his head. You don’t have mb to click and read the post and you just come out here insulting the innocent girl and carrying the matter on your head… LMAO…some people sef…lols

    Oga drake its nt a question he iz a demi god u think he stoop so low 4 u ah i lyked y b4 u don 4uck up
    Jesu drake what r u no reach dere ooo ole alatenuje

  17. I just wonder why some people don’t have any level of understanding.. The writer wrote that he just made up a story himself and its not a true occurrence. And still some low-level brainer are here accusing the lady of wanting to be important. She is innocent, and has nothing to do with this maked-up story. She never said anything written there above. So don’t start accusing or abusing the lady for what she doesn’t have a hand in.

    Do you expect her not to enjoy herself with her husband and start going to show with one Segun and started saying all those? Practically No! So she is not guilty of any word said in the story, the writer already said it all came from his head not from any occurrence.

  18. all of una no get work ooo una wehdone clap for una self no go look for Hw una life go take better una con dey follow ppl useless post for social media oteh main boys and girls MUMU

  19. Why can’t some people read before commenting? Ok just manage and read the last paragraph… why do u spend all this time, energy and money in school to learn how to read?

  29. Na wa o! I’m sure a lot of people here sent in comments due to the ‘headline’ am sure they didn’t read the interview in full. This Segun guy made it known at d end of d interview that NO interview ever took place

  30. A lot of Africans hate reading. So many dullards seeking attention. Before commenting, please read. If your dumb heads can’t phatom what is written, exit the post before commenting ignorantly.
