The music star and his award-winning actress wife shared their testimony at The Waterbrook Church in Lagos on Easter Sunday.
In an episode of The Waterbrook series titled ‘Final Say Faith’, the couple revealed that they were expecting a set of twins at some point, and everything was fine, till a scan revealed the baby was no longer alive.
They lost their set of twins when Adesua was in her trimester, and it was a tough moment for them as they both broke down in tears on the day of evacuation.
“So we got pregnant and we got pregnant with twins. And we had gone for the scans, we had seen the heartbeats. At this point very few people knew what happened,” Adesua said.
“Every report that you have heard was a lie because nobody knew what happened. So during a routine checkup, we went back to the hospital to have a scan and I just saw the doctor’s face…you know when something is wrong, sometimes you can tell.”
“She was scanning and scanning and I was like what’s wrong and she said ‘oh nothing’ and I looked at the nurse’s face I’m and asked what’s wrong and she said ‘Adesua’ I’m looking for the heartbeats and I said ‘for the two of them?’.”
“So I went home and I remember Banky not being at that time and I remember collapsing on the floor wailing. Wailing is different from crying, it’s like a deep groin in your chest. I’m sharing because many women go through this and nobody talks about it because it is almost like a thing of shame for whatever reason and I don’t know why.
“So we said we were going to pray over the weekend and go back for the scan on Tuesday or Monday can’t remember now, hoping that God would do something,” she added.
Banky W goes on to narrate how the heartbeats of their twins not only stopped but started shrinking and how they lost the babies.
“Monday or Tuesday can and we went for the scan, not only did we not see heartbeats but the embryos were shrinking, they were decaying. When we found out we were losing them and we needed to do an evacuation, it was a very emotional time for her,” he said.
“The day we cried together was the day of the evacuation (the removal of the dead embryo) and we went to the hospital and did the procedure. Adesua is one of the strongest people that I know, but I had never seen her so frail and in so much pain, emotional and physical.”
The couple talked about how they planned on adopting or even surrogacy at some point.
Etomi revealed how their family pastor told them to give it six months. This was followed by several dreams and visions of them carrying their baby.
Months after prayers, Adesua revealed that she found out that she was pregnant and all she said as she looked at the positive pregnancy stick was ”Olubankole God has done it.”
Adesua and Banky W welcomed the arrival of their first child together in February 2021.
