While Nigerian celeb couple, Banky W and Adesua Etomi kept us glued to social media for their wedding, another Nollywood star, Kunle Remi suffered the harsh judgement of fans of the well wishers. Over the last couple of months, rumors had swelled that Kunle Remi was Adesua’s ex and wasn’t such a great boyfriend before Banky came and swept her off her feet.
Kunle Remi further inspired more dirt talk as during Adesua and Banky’s star studded engagement and wedding ceremony, Kunle was MIA and did not share any congratulatory message on social media.
Gist now is that the formerly silent Remi has come out to not only discredit the rumors but also attempt to convince us that he shared his goodwill messages privately (a first as his social media accounts show he is quite great at congratulating newly wedded couples publicly).
In a public service announcement shared on his Instagram page, Kunle Remi cried out:
“MY NAME IS KUNLE REMI and Not ADESUA’s Ex.
Silence,they say is Golden.
I have been silent, but some people have taken this as an invitation to take the piss!! I have chosen my words and thought this action through, so read carefully, yes, pay attention I will only say this once.
I am not a bitter person neither am I a sadist.
‘If’ you know me, (if you don’t, ask about me from those that do) you would know I am a very positive and I radiate good vibes only, I am not here for any form of negativity whatsoever.
My name has been used inappropriately, and it is time I set the record straight.
I intentionally waited till after the festive of the beautiful wedding ceremony had come to a natural halt out of respect for the couple.
I have not till this present day said to any blogger, or mentioned on any social media platform, or granted any interview admitting or confirming that I was ever in a relationship with the former Miss Adesua Etomi who as well all know tied the knot over the past weekend, neither do I recall her doing the same.
Yet some jobless people cooked up stories and sold it to other jobless people and then jobless readers and commentators believed it and hence the rumors started circulating with no proof other than pictures of us on a Movie set titled (FALLING. A great film by the way, It’s on Netflix if you haven’t seen it). Contrary to the opinion of people who feel theirs matters, I don’t have to congratulate the beautiful couple publicly to prove anything. Some of us would rather do our things privately. You CAN’T believe all you see on social media (some people will still not understand).
Take for example ; Recently I posted a picture of my Beautiful Nephew on my Instagram and as expected, rumors started again without any confirmation that I have a baby. (Quote me) I never confirmed to anyone that he is My Son. So there you go!!. Not all you see or read on social media is the gospel truth.
Having said that this is my advice to those this may concern; Just for your sanity try to be sure about the rumors and gist before you tongue lash people or judge people. Sometimes Not everyone is strong enough to handle it.
P.S: The Adesua/Kunle Remi and we can confirm that the rumors were 50 percent accurate as our correspondent had seen the couple (Adesua and Kunle) on some PDA at several open spaces in Lagos way back in 2015 and word around the industry also confirmed that they were an item.
