Adesua Etomi stuns on Cover of Vogue Magazine

Published

on

 

Actress Adesua Etomi-Wellington has landed the coveted cover of Vogue Magazine. The beautiful wife of RnB star, Banky W made the list of 14 global actors from 14 countries, who know no limits.

Read part of her story below…

“The Nigerian actress Adesua Etomi-Wellington can’t walk down the street in Lagos without getting mobbed, and if she’s with her husband, the actor Banky Wellington, forget it—a trip to the grocery store launches a thousand selfies. But unlike some of her cohorts on the shoot, she’s more of a third-culture kid, born in Nigeria and raised mainly in England. (She speaks in two fluent accents—Lagos and the British Midlands.) She went to school in Coventry, studied drama at University of Wolverhampton, and then got a nine-to-five job with the fashion arm of a large supermarket chain. It was then that, as she puts it, “I can’t explain it—I felt I had to go back to Nigeria.”

That was toward the end of 2012, and in the past six years or so she has become one of the biggest stars in Nollywood, Nigeria’s relatively young film industry. The Wedding Party(2016), a colorful and witty romantic comedy in which she plays the lead opposite Wellington, was the highest-grossing film in the history of Nigerian cinema, until it was eclipsed by its sequel, which also starred Etomi-Wellington. In fact, she points out, of the four films that have done best for the relatively young industry, she is in three. “I love, love, love Nollywood,” Etomi-Wellington says brightly over tea and biscuits at the shoot. “I feel like she’s my baby, and it’s my responsibility, along with a lot of other performers, to grow her.””

Kemi Filani News

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott haven’t had a chance to fully repair their relationship after she accused him of cheating.

Kylie and Travis got in an explosive fight last month after she allegedly found evidence of cheating on his phone.

Though they have been in communication since the incident, the relationship is no longer even close to what it used to be.

Right now, Kylie has some serious trust issues with Travis, and it hasn’t helped that he has been on tour almost nonstop.

Not only has Travis’ insane travel schedule got in the way of a serious sit-down for the couple, Kylie’s also in the middle of preparing for product launches for her cosmetics line and most of her attention is focused on that and her daughter.
