“Why I accepted to date Adekunle Gold” – Simi reveals

Simisola Kosoko, a popular singer who goes by the stage name Simi, tells the tale of how her husband, Adekunle Gold, persevered in trying to date her in the beginning of their relationship.

Simi said in a recent interview with The Beat 99.9 FM in Lagos that Adekunle Gold, a.k.a. AG Baby, had been messaging her on Facebook for a while but that she hadn’t noticed until they started dating.

She recalled their initial encounter, which occurred at one of her concerts, and how Adekunle Gold’s sincere politeness ultimately persuaded her to begin dating him many months later.

The singer revealed that they dated for five years before finally marrying in 2019. She, however, stated that her reason for agreeing to date him was because of his niceness.

In 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].”
