Why I didn’t want to marry Adekunle Gold – Simi

In a recent episode of Tea with Tay, Simi, also known as Singer Simisola Kosoko, admitted that she never had any intentions of marrying a musician.

Surprisingly, she revealed that she didn’t even know her now-husband, Adekunle Gold, was a musician when they first met.

“When I first met my husband, I didn’t know he was singing because me I already said I cannot marry a singer. I didn’t know he was singing, I think he was even a fan.”

The talented artist, who is a mother and wife, shared that she was initially drawn to Adekunle because he was genuinely kind-hearted.

This sentiment aligns with what she previously mentioned in a 2023 interview with The Beat 99.9 FM, where she disclosed that they dated for five years before tying the knot in 2019.

Simi reminisced about the moment they crossed paths at her concert, emphasizing how Adekunle’s kindness eventually won her over to the idea of dating him.

Simi said:

“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).”
