Who are we going to talk about today?
The person we have here is a polyglot: singer, dancer, ice skater, guitarist and an awesome actress. She is nobody else other than Adesua Etomi, a Nollywood actress whose love for arts runs deep.
Tolulope Adesua Etomi was born in Owerri, Imo State on February 22, 1988. Her father is a soldier of Esan descent and her mother is a civil engineer of Yoruba descent. She is the youngest of three siblings. She attended Corona School in Victoria Island, Lagos where she joined the drama club at age 7.
Etomi moved to the United Kingdom when she was 13 years old and later obtained a diploma in Physical Theatre, Musical Theatre and Performing Arts from City College Conventry in 2004.
Her talent was untapped until 2004 when she proceeded to study in college, where she graduated with triple distinctions and first class honours.
She was presented with The Foursight Theatre Award by the University for Best Performance in a Devised Piece of Theatre. She returned to Nigeria in 2012 and started performing in several stage plays like Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s wife, Sara Shattered, The Grimm Tales and over 20 other plays.
Adesua is one of the fast rising Nigerian movie stars who entered the spotlight in April 2014 after featuring in Nigerian Cinema movie, Knocking on Heaven’s Door.
Is Adesua single? Is she married? Well if you are really worried about her love life, Adesua got engaged to popular singer and actor, Banky W., in May 2017 after keeping their relationship a secret for over 2 years.
The relationship was the subject of much attention as the two of them starred in Kemi Adetiba’a The Wedding Party as a married couple.
