Adekunle Gold and Simi, two of Nigerians favourite artistes took Nigerians by surprise when they awoke to the news that the traditional marriage ceremony between the two was going on.
The couple who wanted no media attention had strategically hidden their venue away from the public such that social media users were second guessing if the wedding was real or for a music video. While some rumoured that the wedding was taking place at Magodo, some rumoured it was Victoria Island. It was not until after the wedding that Nigerians found that it was Eko Atlantic.
While Nigerians were delighted, there was one problem that needed to be addressed.
It appeared in the person of Falz.
Enter Falz, the comic Instagram character turned actor turned artiste and now turned socially conscious artiste. Asides this, he is a refined lawyer and the son of Nigeria’s radical SAN, Femi Falana.
It was easy to see how Simi and Falz connected. Whether Simi was singing, being her regular FIFA player self or a comic act, their relationship blossomed or so it seemed. Amidst the relationship rumours going on in the social sphere, Soldier and Jamb Question were birthed. The “love story” peaked when their Chemistry album was released in 2016.
If Falz showed any form of attraction? He did not know how to hide it because he spoke glowingly of her in interviews. According to close sources, she simply made him happy.
But Adekunle who had been dating Simi for the past five years at that time appeared to be unbothered. To worsen the situation, Adekunle came out on national television and openly avoided answering the “girlfriend” question.
The only thing that made Nigerians question Falz and Simi’s relationship was the way Adekunle and Simi looked at each other. Those who attended the Simi Live in Concert will attest that whenever Adekunle appeared on stage when Simi was faltering, everyone suddenly noticed their synergy unlike when Falz was on board. The two went a bit further when they kissed on stage.
Right now, it appears that Falz has gotten over the drama. After pictures of their wedding surfaced, Falz posted a “wailing” smiley. Those who know Falz say that he is over it and he wishes them happiness and love.
From us, may Falz find his “Assurance.”
