Adekunle via a letter to Kemi Filani, revealed why they chose to wed in private.
According to Adekunle Gold, “Earlier in 2018, I asked my girl of 5 years to be my wife. Knowing all my imperfections and shortcomings, she said yes! This January, before God and our family, we vowed to do this thing called life together. To be honest, it’s easy to get lost in the limelight; so we definitely have a slightly obsessive desire for a private life that belongs to just us.
“We planned on sharing a little bit of the beginning of our forever with you. Thankfully my team got Kudus on our little Island with us to capture some of these moments for you. ”Here is ‘Promise’.”
The “Promise” turned out to be a love song by the couple, which showed snippets of their private wedding.
The music video, released on Youtube, shows interspersed clips of the singers intimately conversing, riding on quad bikes in slow-motion, laughing heartily at their private jokes, embracing each other warmly, dancing late into the night in their wedding costumes and also drenching each other in a pool while still fully clothed in their all white wedding clothes.
With Adekunle Gold asking for a promise that Simi would ride with him till the “sun goes down”and Simi’s beautiful voice echoing lines like “I’ll ride with you till we’re 144” and “mo fe b’imo meji, will you be the father?” it is obvious that this is Adekunle Gold and Simi finally opening the door, albeit just a little and on their own terms, to allow fans into their love-filled world.
After their wedding ceremony, the two seem to be having the time of their lives in South Africa! Share your thoughts on the couple in the comment section below.
