Celebrity Mom, Simi On How Her Love Story With Husband, Adekunle Gold Started

Sensational Nigerian singer, Simisola Kosoko better known as Simi, has shared the beautiful story of how she met the absolute love of her life, singer Adekunle Gold.

The mother of one shared the heartwarming story during a recent interview on Beat FM.

Simi disclosed that when she was involved in gospel music, Adekunle was a huge fan of hers and sent her numerous messages on Facebook. However, she didn’t see those messages and didn’t know him at the time.

Their paths eventually crossed at one of her musical performances when Adekunle attended the show to watch her perform. After the event, he approached her to express his admiration as a fan.

According to Simi, her husband was very persistent in his pursuit of her as he explored every means to get her attention, noting that his persistence made her consider dating him during the early days of their careers.

She said she eventually became his friend because she was attracted to his kindness. She added that he asked her to be his girlfriend that same year, and the rest, they say, is history.

The celebrity couple dated for five years and tied the nuptial knot in 2019.

“I don’t remember how we eventually linked up again. I had a show Bogobiri, and he turned up. He was very slim at that time with white BYC and jeans. 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!’ [laughs].

“I don’t know, he must have been persistent because there is a friendship that came out from there. I thought he was a really nice guy. We became friends and later that year, he asked me out.

“I mean, as much as I was sounding like all that, I still didn’t really have nothing. He was a nice guy and I was like, ‘Okay, I don’t mind a nice guy’ [laughs],”
