Adesua Etomi talks about her career, keeping her engagement to RnB crooner Banky W a secret and more as she covers Guardian Life’s newest edition.
Read excerpts from The Wedding Party actress’ interview: Revealing five things people probably did not know about her, she said: “I’m left handed. I’m not a fan of handbags and jewelry. I think Will Smith is perfect. My mum is a pastor and I sang in a choir for ten years.”
About keeping her engagement to Banky W, her co-star in TWP and popular RnB singer a top secret, she said:
“I’m very particular about my inner circle, you can count my closest friends on one hand and that’s because I believe you just need a few good friends, I am very friendly to everybody else. Also my family, my mum, those are the people that keep it all together for me and they are always there and you can’t beat that” About her strategy when she came into the Nollywood industry, she said: “ I didn’t come here thinking I am going to meet this person and meet that person, my strategy was prayer and divine connections. That was what I was going for, I wasn’t trying to look for who was going to help me or give me a handout.” The original plan was to stay in Nigeria for three months and head back to the UK but as plans changed she knew she had to hit the ground running, “I knew what I wanted to become and I didn’t know how I wanted to get there but I knew the things I didn’t want to do to get there. I knew there were certain things that were associated with success and that’s preparation, staying prepared, keeping the work at the forefront of everything that I do”
