Adesua Etomi-Wellington, actress and wife of Nigerian singer turned politician, Banky W, has shared how she reacted when her husband told her about his decision to join politics.
Speaking in a recent interview with HipTV, Adesua revealed that she was initially worried when Baky informed her of his plans to go into politics.
She, however, noted that her worries left when she realised he was pursuing a higher purpose.
“When Banky said he was going to go into politics, I was a little bit worried. I spoke about this many times before but I also believe that purpose is more important than fear. I want to see him prove purpose, so he has my support 100 percent.” She said.
In 2019, Banky W joined politics to run for the federal constituency of Eti-Osa in the House of Representatives under the platform of the default Modern Democratic Party, but lost in the general elections.
At the time, he lost to Babajide Obanikoro, the candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
Banky W, refusing to back down, left the MDP for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2022 and won the ticket to contest a seat in the House of Representatives in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
