Even before they got married, there have been indications of a relationship between the two but they acted professionally and kept their personal life off social media.
The two were together for not less than 5 years before they made their relationship public, they went on to marry before their fans could recover from getting to know that they were in a relationship.
Looking back, many would have placed a bet on it that Simi would get married to the Bop Daddy, Falz the Bahd Guy, because of the chemistry the two shared in songs like Jamb Question, Solider, and Foreign.
People began to see things were not going that way in December 2018 when Simisola shared a photo of Adekunle and her kissing at her annual music concert ‘Simi Live in Concert’ on Instagram. With the caption
“God knew what He was doing when our paths crossed. Your support is immense; your love is overwhelming in the best way. Thank you champ, I love you Adekunle Gold”
Speaking about her relationship with Falz, on Ndani TV’s The Juice, Simi said “We never said we were dating but at the end of the day, it was selling the music. I was in a relationship at the time so I definitely was carrying my man along and he knew that it was the game. Now, they are closer. They don’t even talk to me.’
Simisola and Adekunle Gold got married in January 2019, and we would be refreshing your memory with 5 of the beautiful unforgettable songs they have both featured in.
Uncle Suru – John Ogah ft Adekunle Gold and Simi
This song was originally released in 2015 by an Ex-Big Brother housemate, John Ogah who won the first edition of MNET’s Glo Naija Sings competition.
He seems to have fallen out of relevance after he released his debut video featuring Sasha, but his appearance on BBN brought him back into the spotlight.
When he was asked about the inspiration behind the song, John said that the inspiration came from a close ‘uncle’ who died in a bomb blast.
On getting the couple to feature in the song, he recounted that it wasn’t something he planned for but it happened.
This song was released on July 28, 2016, as part of the Gold’s Album. It was nominated for Headies Award for Best Collabo and won City People Music Award for Best Collabo of the Year. It was written by the couple and produced by Oscar Scheller.
Take Me Back
It is the only song Adekunle Gold featured, in the Simisola Album. It came after many people had taught that Simisola would marry Falz. But, in the emotionally tensed song Gold professed is love for Simisola again.
The lyrics of the song carries a deep meaning and would be good for lovers seeking to reunite after a breakup.
Weeks after having their private wedding, Adekunle Gold and Simi released Promise as a seal over their wedding vow. For personal reasons, they kept the wedding off-media but decided to give a snippet of what happened in the music video.
In the video, both promised to stick with each other for eternity.
Here is another song released months after the love birds got married. The song was released under Simi’s record label, Studio Brat.
Funnily enough, at the end of the song, another snippet of their wedding was played. Adekunle Gold was singing ‘Orente’ for his sweetheart. It was so romantic. You need to check out the music video.
