Opening up on her marriage with Adeleke Gold, Simi recounted how she met her husband on Facebook where they used to chat until they finally met in person at a show she headlined in Lagos.
She shockingly disclosed that she never knew her husband was a musician like herself when they first met. She stated that, they continued their friendship until it went into dating and finally marriage.
“He was chasing me all over facebook When I was still doing gospel music he used to listen to my songs. He sent me a message on Facebook and that was how we met. I didn’t know him at the time. I didn’t respond either. The first time I ever saw him was at a show at Bogobiri, he told me that he was going to be there and I said ‘sure’. He came and that was how we met. Over the years we were friends at first. When I first met him I just knew him as the king of Photoshop, I didn’t know he was also a musician”, she said.
Simi added that some of her fans wanted her to marry Falz instead of her husband Adekunle Gold.
“People thinking it was Falz I would have gotten married to was funny. I still get comments from people in my DM that they wish it was Falz I got married to”, she said.
“Now you’re part of a different family, I’m talking extended family now; so you have to be very conscious. You know your boyfriend’s mom is different from your husband’s mom, she’s now like your mom.
