Wednesday, January 9, was a thrilling day for many Nigerians, something close to a revival of happy moments for many. The reason for the cheeriness can be attributed to the sudden traditional wedding of popular musicians Simisola and Adekunle Gold.
Due to the secrecy of their traditional union, some people still think that short clips from the wedding reception were from a video shoot. However, Simi’s manager Wale Bello, has come out to confirm the singer’s union to Adekunle Gold.
According to Punch, Bello disclosed that the talented musicians truly got married. He added that why they made it a private ceremony was best known to them.
“Adekunle Gold and Simi are already married. They got married on Wednesday in a close-knit ceremony. It was the traditional marriage that they had and they have not yet fixed a date for the white wedding. Although some people are speculating that they would do their white wedding this week, it is false; they only did their traditional wedding. I do not know why they made it a secret but it is what they want. Some people might have felt that it is a music video shoot but it is not. They are married.”
Simi and Adekunle Gold’s white wedding will take place later in the year. There are also rumors that the singers might be expecting their first baby together.
We earlier reported that a new video of Simi and her bridesmaid dancing shakushaku while expressing their unreserved excitement has emerged on the internet. In the video, Simi who was wearing a beautiful blue Aso-oke took center stage in front of her excited bridesmaids who were wearing uniform brown attires. The excited ladies who could not help but be happy for their friend started a dancing spree.
While the celebrity couple have marked out January 9 for their traditional ceremony, they have chosen to do their white wedding the very next day in the presence of only 300 guests. At the very moment, the engagement of Simi and her beau Adekunle Gold is underway.
The event held at a private venue in Eko Atlantic is being done in a very hushed tone. But then, several celebrities close to the couple are in attendance. Hence, they are giving everyone a glance of how the traditional ceremony is going down.
In their chic, native attires, celebrities like Falz, Dotun, Olamide, Praiz, Olamide, Moelogo, Pheelz and Smade have stormed the event. They mark some of the first appearances at the event.
