The much anticipated wedding party of music act, Banky W and actress
Adesua Etomi almost suffered hiccups but for God’s intervention.

The groom-to-be, Bankole Wellington aka Banky W just shared a post on
Instagram that he had skin cancer tumours which were operated upon and
he survived.
Their traditional wedding is supposed to hold on November 19, 2017.
Banky W, who said his wife-to-be was at his side throughout his ordeal, wrote:
A wise man once said this: “Scars. A sign that you had been hurt. A
sign that you had been healed.” Scroll through the pictures to see

I’m sharing these because they’re proof of what God has brought me
through. And because somewhere out there, I know there’s someone who
needs to hear this.

For those who’ve been wondering why I’ve been away so long..I had my
3rd surgery on a rare strain of skin cancer tumours in my shoulder last
month. The first 2 times were over 10 yrs ago, then it recently
resurfaced. But this isn’t a sad story as much as it is a reminder, and a

A reminder that you should never take life for granted. You only get 1
shot. Some people went to sleep and never woke up. Many others have lost
the battle to cancer and other illnesses. Many are still fighting. U
never know when your time will be up so don’t waste another minute. It’s
also a testimony about the goodness of God. I think I had to go through
this again to remember how merciful God is to me; Lord knows I don’t
deserve it but He saves me time and again anyway. I keep saying I need
to write a book. I really, really do.

The past few weeks of recovery have been tough, but beautiful. I’m
finally back on my feet, feeling stronger and ready to get back to life.
I’m especially thankful to my Nurse Susu for loving me and being by my
side every step of the way – I don’t deserve U ,
my parents & siblings, in-laws & close friends for the love,
support and prayers, my Pastors – Pastor Tony Rapu & Pastor Del
Balogun of TPH, Pastor Taiwo Odukoya and Pastor Bayo Adeyokunnu – for
constantly praying with and for me. And of course to Dr Wodajo & Dr
Miralli & their teams – who God used to operate on me successfully.
I’m thankful for life, provision and healing. Pls dont feel
bad, or msg me with any worries.. God has done it, just thank Him for
The pain will eventually go away but the scar won’t – and I’m glad
because it’s a reminder to me of what God has done, and evidence to you
of what He CAN do. I’m not stronger or better than anyone. I’m just a
living testimony that no matter what u face, U can survive & thrive,
by God’s grace.
