Whenever urban highlife singer, Adekunle Gold is being interviewed, one question that he always get asked is his relationship with Simi. For years, there have been speculations that the singer is dating Simi, a claim he has debunked on several occasions.
Earlier today, it was widely reported that the duo are getting married in an intimate wedding ceremony. Recall that the pair had their wedding introduction in December 2018.
TheNewsGuru gathered that 300 guests have been invited for the wedding ceremony.The traditional wedding will hold today in Victoria Island, while their white wedding is slated for Thursday at Ilashe beach.
Their love story reportedly started years when both of them were still struggling to succeed in the music industry. For a long time, it was all love and a blissful life for the young, hardworking couple who were determined to make a name for themselves in the turbulent Nigerian music industry, as they both held on fervently to their dream, their exceptional individual talents being a major driving force.
On how she met Adekunle Gold, Simi said in a chat with Punch:” I met Adekunle Gold while I was performing at an event centre in Lagos. Unknown to me, he had been listening to me since I was a gospel artiste and he said he was a fan of my music. At that time, I just knew him as a graphic artist, popularly referred to as the ‘King of Photoshop;’ I didn’t even know he was a singer, but we just became close from there.”
On the part of Adekunle, he has always found a way to avoid questions pertaining to his romance with Simi.
“For every time that I get this question, it just worries me. I already told you I wrote ‘Orente’ for Simi. How many times do I have to say it? Why do I have to say it directly? It is what it is, I have said it already. The news is everywhere. I don’t need to finally say it that we are dating. We don’t need to come out that we are dating. What else do you want me to say, Yes we are dating?, “he told Goldmyne TV.
Their chemistry has always been evident whenever they collaborate on songs together. During his ‘About 30’ album listening party, Adekunle said Simi has to validate any song before he releases it.
“Any song that I write that Simi does not validate, I’m not putting it out…she’s a better writer than me. I fight her (Simi) all the time because she brings the best out of me”.
TNG wishes them bliss as they embark on their marital journey.
