Nigerian Singer Simi On How She Started Dating Adenkule After Ignoring His DMs
Popular singer, Simisola Kosoko popularly known as Simi has narrated how her husband Adenkule Gold’s persistence made her decide to date her at the early stages of her career. She said that Adenkule had been sending her messages on Facebook but never noticed it until they began dating. She reminisced how they met at a concert and how his niceness made her accept to date her.
Simisola revealed, “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 anything. He was a nice guy and I was like, ‘Okay, I don’t mind a nice guy.
