Celebrity couple, Banky W and Adesuwa Etomi are finally tying the knot in an exotic wedding ceremony in Lagos State.
The lovebirds who had their introduction ceremony on May 6, had their white wedding on November 19, in company of close friends and family.

“Somehow, God saw it fit to bless me with all of it anyway. In this moment, I am so happy, so grateful and so thankful.
“And so ready to take this step – By God’s grace and mercy, here’s to forever, he wrote.Source link
