My first real introduction to Adesua Etomi was in The Wedding Party, I was struck by her beauty, her carriage and the way she spoke. I later read about her online and her down to earth and sweet personality. I later read that her first feature movie in Nollywood was in 2014, Knocking on Heaven’s Door, after which she won an award in 2016 for her role in the 2015 movie, Falling.
She seems to be a darling of the Big Budget movie producers now, though it seemed she was being typecast, until she landed the lead role in Sugar Rush, a Crime/Comedy flick. Adesua interpreted her role superbly in the movie. She is married to Bankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W, a Nigerian musician turned actor. Their wedding seemed to be a re-enactment of their roles in Wedding Party 1 & 2. Banky W also had a role in Sugar Rush.
Adesua Etomi-Wellington stars in the Nigerian-American 2019 movie that was mostly shot in Nigeria and United States, alongside other actors from both Nollywood and Hollywood . Below is a list of some of the movies Adesua has appeared in.
