The few romantic scenes she acted with O.C Ukeje were epic not just for the touchy-feely but because they managed to create a pair who delivered what an office romance is. The arbitration was a good movie but the performance of Adesuwa and OC Ukeje gave it the perfect tilt in the right direction.

Wow! This movie captured everything an actress should be. Adesuwa acted out a role that a million other actresses could have done but never the way she did. Her relationship on screen with Kunle Remi was almost too believable. It made us understand that there must be a sex scene for a movie to be sexual. Their chemistry was the epic.
Shuga 4 focused on themes involving adolescent girls, stigma, prevention of mother to child transmission (PMTCT), HIV testing, gender-based violence, first sex and the disclosure of HIV status.
Adesuwa played the role of an HIV negative lady dating an HIV positive guy. Her natural and easy relationship with Emmanuel Ikubese was more than commendable even as she seemed to stand by him despite his HIV status.

After this movie, we were all convinced without a doubt that they were definitely meant to be. And of course, we were definitely not surprised when they announced their engagement even though they had previously kept their relationship a secret.
All these go to prove what an exceptional actress Adesuwa Etomi-Wellington really is. Nollywood is indeed lucky to have such a distinct and talented actor.
