The mother of one highlights that one of the reasons why she had friend-zoned her husband was that, at the time, she hadn’t heard from God on whether he was the right man for her.

She said …

“I would like to say that friendship plays a very big role in laying the foundation of your relationship. I friend-zoned my husband for a year and half [laughs].

“I friend-zoned him for two reasons. One, I wasn’t sure that I have heard from God about whether this person was actually my person. Actually, three reasons. Second, marrying Banky W [laughs]. I was like, ‘my life on my own is chaotic enough, I would now marry Banky? No, no, no.’

And then thirdly, just trying to at least have a friendship. And I honestly believe that the friendship we laid over a year and half has played a very big role in how our relationship is today. Banky W is my guy. I mean if you take away romance and sex and everything that makes a marriage, he would still be my guy. Banky is my best friend.”

Banky W interjected: “No, leave s.x. Don’t take it away [laughs].”

You’d recall that the celebrity couple got married, in a glamorous wedding, on November 19, 2017. They birthed their first child, Hazaiah, in January 2021 and subsequently unveiled his face to the public a year later.
