Nigerian singer, Simisola Bolatito Ogunleye, professionally known and referred to as Simi, has revealed what her recent marriage to fellow music star, Adekunle Gold, has put her through.
Simi last week got married to her lover and singer, Adekunle Gold.
Simi revealed that she has not slept well in a week due to her marriage.
She wrote on her Insta-stories, “I haven’t gotten decent sleep in a week but I’m happy.”
Regardless of the stress, the 30-year-old ‘Joromi’ crooner said she is very happy.
The Nigerian entertainment world went agog when news broke that the talented singers were getting married.
The music stars got married traditionally last week in Lagos while date of their white wedding is yet to be set.
Falz’s supposed reaction to the news of Simi and Adekunle Gold getting married last week has since gone viral on social media, sparking off speculations that he may be heartbroken and grappling with the pangs of heartbreak.
While messages congratulating the singers on their alleged wedding ceremony flooded the social media, instead of joining the likes of Davido, Ric Hassani, Don Jazzy, and many other celebrities who congratulated them, Falz posted the picture of a crying child on Twitter, a post which has been concluded to portray his mood as at the time he received the news.
Recall that at some point Falz was rumoured to be romantically involved with Simi but both singers rubbished the claims on different occasions, insisting that they were mere friends. “I’m not dating Falz. I was not dating Falz. I never said I was dating Falz”, Simi had insisted during an interview session on Wazobia Max’s ‘Talk Talk’.
Though she admitted being in a romantic relationship during an interview but she refused to reveal the identity of the person for personal reasons. “I always like to keep my personal life away from the public. All I can say is that I am in a relationship but I just don’t want to disclose the person’s name”, she had said. She also explained how she met Adekunle Gold, but declined to speak on her relationship with him. “When I met Adekunle Gold, 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.”
Nigerian celebrities: Adesuwa Etomi, Toke Makinwa, Banky W and others have continued to congratulate newly wedded Simi and Adekunle Gold on their marriage and the release of a new song. After a few days of being silent about their union, they broke the internet on Thursday with a visual of their first song as a married couple. Celebrities and other fans have since been gushing over the one minute snippet they individually posted on their social media platforms.
