Nigerian singer, actor turned politician, Bankole Wellington aka Banky W has opened up to his fans about how he was able to get his wife, Adesua Etomi aka Susu’s unwavering support despite her hatred for Nigerian politics.
Banky W couldn’t help but gush over and praise the actress turned singer, Adesua Etomi for being a great partner as well as his support system through his campaign. The politician is vying for a seat in the House of Representatives for the Eti Osa constituency in Lagos.
In a beautiful post on his page, Banky revealed how Adesua initially kicked against him running for office because she sees Nigerian politics as dangerous and dirty.
The mother of one, who hates Nigerian politics and for good reason, disclosed that she knows her husband has the love of the people at heart, but she doesn’t want anything to soil or harm him.
After praying and talking over time, Adesua eventually agreed and Banky had not just his wife’s blessing, but her unwavering support as well.
In the video that accompanied the post, Adesua was seen with Banky and his team as they campaigned to a group of women in Eti Osa. The actress danced, sang, and was warmly received by the women who pledged support for her husband. Banky W wrote:
“Susu always hated politics… So when I began talking about the burden I had to run for office, I’m sure you can imagine how she felt.
She said “Banky I know you, and I know your heart… and if you’re given an opportunity, I’m sure you would do a great job and make a difference… BUT politics in Nigeria is dirty and dangerous. And I don’t want anything to soil you or harm you.
There’s no way I’d have been able to do this without Susu.
So today please take a moment to help me say thank you to Mrs W. My friend and lover. My personal person and purpose partner. Thank you Shuga. Thank you for everything. I love you, and I’m grateful to God for you.”

You can run but you can never hide. Despite the physical, mental and financial challenge, the calling keeps you going.”
