Gospel singer, Mercy Chinwo and her husband, Pastor Blessed have penned a lovely message to Banky W and wife, Adesua Etomi for their support during their wedding ceremony.
Pastor Blessed wrote:
The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect, love, loyalty, joy in each other’s life.
Thank you Jesus for the gift of Family🙏
Love you both @bankywellington @adesuaetomi“
Adesua Etomi also celebrated them on her Instagram page:
“Congratulations to my peopleeee @theofficialblessed and @mercychinwo
Incredibly happy for you both. May the Lord keep you both in his hands and continue to bless your union in Jesus name. Love you❤️”
Banky W is an assistant pastor to Mercy Chinwo’s husband at the Water Brooks Church in Lekki, Lagos.
Last month, Adesua Etomi has revealed to her millions of followers the reason she stopped wearing wigs.
Adesua stated that there is nothing wrong with being simple and she’s just representing ladies who prefer to look simple. Recall that the actress was criticised heavily on social media for wearing simple gowns and braiding her hair to wedding ceremonies.
Adesua wrote on her Instagram page:
“I’ve been wearing cornrows a lot lately on purpose. I feel like my most authentic self when i wear braids, plaits or when I wear my hair out. If you’ve followed me closely, you’d know what I mean. You’d know this isn’t new.
In general, I believe in keeping it simple. Whether it’s from my clothes, to my hair, to my lifestyle. I’m saying this cause every now and then someone tries to turn the word ‘simple’ to mean something negative as though it’s something I should be ashamed of.
So I, Adesua Etomi-Wellington, am out here, holding it down for the simple girls.
Or the ones who rock cornrows wvery now and again, the minimalists…
I hope you look at me and feel pride KNOWING that these rows our ancestors wore are still a thing to be proud of. I hope you see me and rocks yours with pride if you want to but above all, may you know that you are more than your hair no matter how you choose to wear it and more than your clothes, no matter what styles you choose to wear.
I do this for the girls deemed ‘too simple’. There is not a single thing wrong with simplicity. We may be ‘simple’ but there is not a single thing simple about us. Raise your glass if you are a SG 🥂
This isn’t about style and hair as much as it is about being yourself. Saying this so you stop questioning who you are. Embrace it. It’s ok. It’s more than ok, It’s great.
Ps. This song felt more appropriate.
Pps. I’m definitely a millennial. The number of times I’ve had to post and repost this proves it. Gosh. 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️
Ppps I will still wear wigs when I feel like it sha💅 wigs are clutch”
