Brymo’s ‘Unguarded’ Comments Indicate Struggle Of Women In Industry – Adekunle Gold

Adekunle Gold, the popular Nigerian singer, has addressed his colleague, Brymo’s ‘offensive’ statement about his wife a couple of days ago.

Gold addressed Brymo’s statement while touching on the hardship women encounter in the entertainment industry as well as other sectors of the economy.

Amid the promotional tour of his recently released fifth album, ‘Tequila Ever After’, Adekunle Gold made a guest appearance at Cool FM where he was asked to remark over the issue involving his wife and Brymo’s ‘unsolicited’ statement.

Speaking, AG Baby indicated Brymo’s comments and ‘desire’ were absolutely senseless and biased.

He suggested the incident was a perfect example of the many struggles women have to contend with not just in the industry but across all spheres of life; confirming all the claims made by his wife and other women on social media on the stated subject matter.

The “Ogaranya” songster said: “I’m as confused as you but I’m going to say one thing. I know for a fact that it’s a lot harder for women in the industry.

“I feel like they have to do extra, extra work to get attention; you know?! And it’s not talked about often but when people speak about it, they bash them.

“Every time Simi talks about the hardship of being a woman in the industry, I see the outrage on Twitter. Not just Simi, people talk about it, women generally.

“And I’m here to tell you guys that it’s hard. Like it starts from s3x for grade, things like that. Not even in the industry basically, it’s just everywhere.

“You want to take advantage of women and stuff, I would never subscribe to that. I think it’s total bias. And yeah, it’s really hard. I see the struggle every day.

“You want to make music and then you have to be involved s3xually with the person, it makes no sense to me”, AG baby stated, totally condemning Brymo’s confession where he claimed he craved to have s3xual experience with the females he collaborated with at the time.

Wrapping up, the Def Jam Recordings act said: “I want women to be left alone, let them thrive; please!

Last month, Adekunle Gold warned his colleague, Brymo against disrespecting his wife, Simi and family following his unsolicited exposé about her.

In his response to a tweep who suggested that AG baby should have featured him in his anticipated album, Brymo claimed he once asked for s3x from Simi when she requested for collaboration.

One Maskill tweeted: “Brymo suppose dey ur album.”

But the ‘Ara’ crooner, reacting to Maskill recommendation of featuring on AG baby’s upcoming album, ‘Tequila Ever After,’ claimed Adekunle Gold and his wife, Simi, had reached out to him for features, but he turned down their request.

He said he declined to work with Simi in particular because she refused to “get intimate” with him claiming he didn’t know she and Adekunle ‘were together:.

He revealed it all sprang from his desire to have s3xual experience with the females he collaborated with.

Nigerian Singer, Adekunle Gold Explains The Meaning Of ‘Tequila Ever After’

Adekunle Gold, the Afrobeats Pop star, also known as AG Baby has explained the reason behind his anticipated album ‘Tequila Ever After’.

In an interview with Apple Music Africa Now Radio, AG Baby tells the host Nandi Madiba about the inspiration behind his new album.

According to Adekunle Gold, he wasn’t in the best of moods after his last album ‘Catch Me If You Can’ was postponed and to help lift his mood, he was handed a bottle of Tequila.

That was his first time taking that brand of alcohol and according to AG, the alcohol put him in a whole new mood.

“I discovered tequila for the first time last year yeah, I know. We had moved my ‘Catch Me If You Can’ release that day, and I was so upset about it. I wanted the album to come out at a certain time, so I was just upset and obviously, they knew I needed an antidote or something. They brought me a bottle of Patron and I had just one shot… I’m telling you, tequila makes everything better.

“My mood lifted so much and I’m like ‘sheesh!’. It felt so good.

“I pay attention to things a lot and I’m like wait, this experience should not just happen like this without me talking about it. I wondered what if people listen to my music and this is how they feel? I made a song that day and it was a beautiful song and I’m like you know what, I’m going to carry on with this energy. I’m going to let people feel this way after one shot.”

‘Tequila Ever After’ is AG’s fifth album which will fully usher in his Tio Tequila artistic era.

According to AG, the album is the fifth level of his adventure, and he’s at his most happy, cheerful, and confident.

“I’m on level five of my adventure game and it’s all fun. It’s happy, it’s a party, it’s more confident, all better off. When you take tequila, it’s all better off you don’t give any damn, you just say whatever you want to say, and that’s what ‘Tequila Ever After’ means.

“It’s a metaphor for where I am in my life right now. I’m in a very happy state – like very, very happy and I want it to shine through the music.”

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.

Her words,

“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].”
