The inspirational speaker praises Banky's patience and commitment.
A lot has been said on it and everyone is just so delighted for them. We are also still throbbing with excitement for two of the sweetest darlings of the Nigerian entertainment industry.
Reactions after their announcement on Instagram, May 3th, 2017, has also been numerous. There have been congratulations and there has been a lot of lessons to draw from the celebrities' fairy tale.
Jimi Tewe, insprational speaker, Pastor and Life coach also has some amazing observations about Susu and Banky's engagement.
With a photo of the couple on his IG page today, May 4th, 2017, he writes; “I am not a relationship expert. I am just someone given to learning from God's word and others on how to make marriage and relationships work.
“[Lola Tewe] and I have been at it for 11 years and it seems we have learnt a few things.. The response to my post yesterday on the #Friendzone aspect of the engagement of [Banky W] and [Adesua Etomi] made me realise that it’s important to share whatever truth you can in ways that will help others.
“Of course, circumstances differ (and so we have to be careful with application) but principles remain the same.
“Your marriage is more likely to last when you are in it with someone who truly values your companionship (friend).
“Something else I observed is that he stayed resolute on his decision to marry her even though he had to wait for 18 months or so. For a fine man, that could be a struggle.
“I once counselled a young guy who was complaining that a lady told him he wasn't a serious person.
“When I dug deeper, I found out he had asked five ladies out (at different times) in a period of 6 months. I immediately told him that he didn't really love any of them.
“When you know someone and you love them, their 'No' becomes a challenge and not a rejection.
“One of the elements of successful marriages is commitment and this will usually be tested before your significant other will say 'Yes'.
“You can't claim to love me this week and not love me next week because of one rejection (or even ten).
“(By the way, ladies, when a guy truly loves you, after a while of consistent neglect, he can actually move on.
“My wife told me 'No' twice and at a point I told her to seriously consider her stance. She changed it. So, what am I saying?
“If you truly love someone, it will show in your actions and one of the greatest actions that shows true love is commitment.
“Giving your friendship time provides an opportunity to validate commitment too.
“So… I know people have been sliding into DM's since yesterday... But is he/she committed to you? I'm not a relationship expert o.. I'm just sharing my thoughts.”
Adesua and Banky both starred in the record-breaking movie "The Wedding Party" and are going to star in the movie's sequel, too.
