Over time, there have been numerous rumours about whether or not popular Nigerian singers, Simi and Adekunle Gold are dating but no celebrity has actually paid attention to the other side of their relationship to see what they can learn from their journey so far.
They are both talented, good looking and at the top of their careers but what’s really the connection between these two? How long have they known each other? How come they are still together in spite all rumours and efforts to end their relation?
Most Nigerians got to find out that Simi and Adekunle have known each other long before fame after an old photo of them surfaced on the internet which sparked up the whole rumour of the two dating.
Though in several interviews and on their social media platforms, both artistes have denied ever being romantically connected and we understand the fact that they were protecting that, which they love and care about with their all.
These two have been together based on our findings for more than five years now yet, the media is not certain on whether or not they are dating. They are able to make things work without interference from the media or the public in spite their celebrity status.
Both Simi and Adekunle DON’T share photos of their private moments together, they don’t talk of their private lives in interviews or anywhere else public and all we get to see or hear about are strictly business affairs. The sure deserve a commendation for that.
The exceptional singers who live in an industry where marriages crash every day, relationships die before they even started and all manner of issues associated with celebrities and their relationships, they are able to hold their own for this long. This is a rare case in an industry like this.
Though from time to time the two have been suggesting that they have a thing going on between them, everyone awaits when they will finally make it public which may never happen or maybe not just yet.
Few months ago, Adekunle revealed that Simi is the only artiste he had on his one and only album. Adding that she also mixed and mastered almost all the songs on the album. He said:
“She (Simi) mixed and mastered all the songs except ‘Sade’ which was mixed and mastered by V-Tek. Simi is amazing, she did a lot of work. We had times that we fought about some songs on the album like ‘Nurse Alabere’. I recorded the song like three times; recorded ‘Fight For You’ about three times. I’m happy that we went through all of that because it turned out to be great.”
Though Simi had fueled lots of rumours through her collaborations with rapper Falz, a close source revealed that she is always with Adekunle;
“Forget all the social media hype, Simi is still Adekunle’s girlfriend, she’s always in his house and drives his car,” a source told Thenet.ng.
It’s obvious that Simi had been using the likes of Falz and Ycee to take away media’s attention from her relationship with Adekunle, which again is brilliant.
Making another controversial headline, Simi and Adekunle are currently on a vacation having fun at a private beach and Nigerians cannot still ascertain exactly what they two are up to because none of the couple has shared a photo that shows both of them at a particular spot.
This type of relationship is obviously what most Nigerian celebrities need. That you are a public figure does not really mean every one needs to know what goes down in your closet. Social media and news media generally have done more harm than good to celebrity relationships and marriages in Nigeria.
