“He was chasing me all over on Facebook and everything. When I was doing gospel music, he used to listen to my songs. You know he knew my songs and so he reached out to me on Facebook. I didn’t know him at the time. I didn’t respond either,” she said.
Simi who started her career as a gospel singer, releasing her debut studio album in 2008, titled Ogaju said when they first met in person at a concert, he was then a graphic designer and not a musician. Their relationship evolved from friendship to romantic partners later on.
Simi and Adekunle got married early this year in a private wedding reportedly attended by 300 guests.
