Banky W and Adesua Etomi introduction

The Ekeindes have that kind of respect and trust in each other that keep a marriage powerful. The actress has severally attributed the success of their marriage to a good relationship with God.

Omotola married pilot Captain Matthew Ekeinde in 1996. The couple later held a white ceremony on board a Dash 7 aircraft while flying from Lagos to Benin in 2001, with close family and friends present.
