Nollywood actress, Adesua Etomi-Wellington talked about her emotions after learning that her husband, Bankole Wellington, alias Banky W, intended to enter politics.
On February 23, 2019, Babajide Obanikoro of the All Progressives Congress defeated him in the election for the Eti-Osa Federal Constituency.
In the 2023 elections, he ran for the same seat under the banner of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), but fell short of Attah Thaddeus of the Labour Party (LP).
Speaking during a recent interview with Hip TV, Adesua said she was initially “worried” and “disturbed” when the singer revealed his intention to join partisan politics.
She, however, said she later decided to support him because “purpose is more important than fear.”
She said, “When Banky said that he wanted to go into politics, I was a little bit worried and disturbed about it.
“But I also believe that purpose is more important than fear. And I want to see him fulfil purpose. So, he has my support 100 per cent.”
