Simisola Kosoko, better known by her stage name Simi, has spoken about how her husband, Adekunle Gold, persisted in getting her to think about dating him at the beginning of their careers.
The singer claimed that the Adekunle Gold also known as AG Baby had been sending her Facebook messages for a while, but she wasn’t aware of it until they began dating.
She described how they finally crossed paths at one of her performances and how his “niceness” led her to agree to date him months later.
In a recent interview with The Beat 99.9 FM in Lagos, Simi made this revelation.
They dated for five years, according to Simi, before getting married in 2019.
She said; “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].”
