In a recent interview with The Beat 99.9 FM in Lagos, Simi revealed that Adekunle Gold, a.k.a AG Baby, had been sending her messages on Facebook for a considerable period, but she didn’t notice until they began dating.
She recounted their first meeting, which took place at one of her concerts, and how Adekunle Gold’s genuine kindness eventually led her to start dating him several months later.
The talented singer, known for her song “Stranger,” disclosed that they dated for five years before finally tying the knot 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].”
