Adesua
Etomi looked ravishing in her traditional Benin attire and looked very
much the latest bride in town. Just like her, a lot of Nigerians
couldn’t wait for this day to come.

On September 9, 2017, Banky W revealed that he was recuperating from a skin cancer operation which was just weeks before his wedding.
He shared photos of him in the hospital with his cars on his Instagram page. He captioned the photos with quite a lengthy quote;
“A
wise man once said this: “Scars. A sign that you had been hurt. A sign
that you had been healed.” Scroll through the pictures to see mine. I’m
sharing these because they’re proof of what God has brought me through.
And because somewhere out there, I know there’s someone who needs to
hear this.

“For
those who’ve been wondering why I’ve been away so long..I had my 3rd
surgery on a rare strain of skin cancer tumours in my shoulder last
month. The first 2 times were over 10 yrs ago, then it recently
resurfaced. But this isn’t a sad story as much as it is a reminder, and a
testimony.

“A
reminder that you should never take life for granted. You only get 1
shot. Some people went to sleep and never woke up. Many others have lost
the battle to cancer and other illnesses. Many are still fighting. U
never know when your time will be up so don’t waste another minute. It’s
also a testimony about the goodness of God. I think I had to go through
this again to remember how merciful God is to me; Lord knows I don’t
deserve it but He saves me time and again anyway. I keep saying I need
to write a book. I really, really do.

“The
past few weeks of recovery have been tough, but beautiful. I’m finally
back on my feet, feeling stronger and ready to get back to life. I’m
especially thankful to my Nurse Susu for loving me and being by my side
every step of the way – I don’t deserve U     , my parents &
siblings, in-laws & close friends for the love, support and prayers,
my Pastors – Pastor Tony Rapu & Pastor Del Balogun of TPH, Pastor
Taiwo Odukoya and Pastor Bayo Adeyokunnu – for constantly praying with
and for me. And of course to Dr Wodajo & Dr Miralli & their
teams – who God used to operate on me successfully.
“I’m
thankful for life, provision and healing. Pls dont feel bad, or msg me
with any worries.. God has done it, just thank Him for me.
‘The
pain will eventually go away but the scar won’t – and I’m glad because
it’s a reminder to me of what God has done, and evidence to you of what
He CAN do. I’m not stronger or better than anyone. I’m just a living
testimony that no matter what u face, U can survive & thrive, by
God’s grace.

Congratulations to the latest celebrity couple in town!
