Sensational Nigerian singer, Simisola Kosoko better known as Simi, has revealed 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.
She disclosed that when she was involved in gospel music, Adekunle Gold 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 Gold 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. She said she eventually became his friend because she was attracted to his kindness.
She said 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.
“In the gospel community, I was pretty well known. And he [Adekunle Gold] had heard my album at that time as well.
“He has been reaching out to me on Facebook, DMing me on Facebook. But I didn’t see those DMs until we started dating.
“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].”
