We’ve had a lot of celebrity weddings but this one stands out amongst all. A celebrity wedding that’s extremely private is rare to find but that’s not the case for Simi and Adekunle Gold.
The duo blew minds away with the level of privacy with which they gave their relationship and now their marriage.
On January 9, 2019, Nigerians were wowed at the news of talented music stars, Adekunle Gold and Simi, tying the knot. However rather than celebrate in the normal way of famous people, they decided to keep their union private. It was also reported that only 300 guests were invited to their white wedding which took place the day after. Recall that while many were unsure if the singers were truly married, they have reassured each other of their undying love. Adekunle Gold who recently released a new song, ‘Promise’, featuring Simi, posted the art work of the single on his Instagram page with the caption; “Promise me you’ll grow old with me and ride with me till the sun goes down”, to which Simi replied him on her own Instagram page saying; “I’ll ride with you till we’re a hundred and forty four.”
Nigerians are still reeling at the news of their private wedding and the couple have tried to make up for it by releasing a music video which includes scenes from their big day.
We recently gathered that the new couple are currently in South Africa to celebrate their honeymoon and judging from the pictures they shared on their social media pages, we can’t help but love them more.
We wish them a happy union.
Meanwhile, we reported that Simi’s mother, Jedidah Ogunleye, who is now Mrs Akinsola, took to social media to celebrate her husband on their first wedding anniversary. She got married for the second time to her new found love in January 2018 at a beautiful ceremony.
Family and well-wishers were also present to celebrate the special day with her. She referred to her husband, Feyisayo, as her baby as she explained that she would always love him. Simi’s mom, and her estranged husband got separated in 1997 and she’s been single ever since.
The white wedding held at the Daystar christian centre, where she has diligently served as the head usher for 20 years now, and members of the church, including Pastor Sam Adeyemi, turned out en masse to support her.
We wish them many more years together.
