Nigerian singer and vocalist, Simi, has recently shared the heartwarming story of how she began dating her now-husband, Adekunle Gold.
Simi recounted their journey from friendship to love during a candid interview with The Beat 99.9 FM in Lagos.
Simi disclosed that their paths first crossed at one of her shows held in Bigobiri in Lagos.
At the time, she was already a well-known figure in the gospel community, and Adekunle Gold had heard her album.
However, their initial connection was made through Facebook, as he had been persistently messaging her through the platform.
Unknown to Simi, who had not been active on the social media platform, Adekunle Gold’s messages had gone unnoticed until a significant turning point in their relationship.
The couple’s friendship eventually blossomed after Adekunle Gold attended one of Simi’s performances at Bogobiri.
Simi recalled the moment saying, “He came to see me perform. I was like, Oh hey! He was like, Oh! I’m such a fan.’ And I was like, Okay”.
Simi admitted that she found Adekunle Gold’s persistent efforts endearing and it was his genuine niceness that ultimately won her over.
Months later, she have in to his advances, and their romantic journey officially began.
The couple dated for five years, nurturing their love and bond, before finally tying the knot in a private ceremony in 2019.
