It is no doubt that Adesua Etomi is blessed with a beauty, complemented by her satin skin and exquisite features. The Nollywood actress and wife of a popular singer, Banky Wellington aka Banky W, is a rare beauty and a big talent.
Where did Adesua Etomi come from?
The Nollywood actress, with full name as Tolulope Adesua Etomi, was born in Owerri, which is South-Western Nigeria, on February 22. There’s a question about her birth year because as several Nigerian editorials claimed, she was born in 1988, and she herself said that she was 29 in 2016.
In that same year, another publication claimed that she was 30. This had made the certainty of her actual date of birth a mystery, known only to Adesua Etomi and her family.
If you must know, her father was a soldier in the Nigerian military while her mother was a civil engineer. As the youngest of the three children in the family, Adesua Etomi has always loved expressing her personality through her performance.

But things didn’t work out as she thought. In the UK, Adesua Etomi quit her job because it brought her no satisfaction, and she was longing for something different. The hearty welcome from Nollywood that loved her and embraced her had won her heart beyond the planned 3 months. And her stay so far has not been fruitless.
She had bagged awards and had become a face to reckon with in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
