Nigerian singers Adekunle Gold and Simi tied the knot in a private ceremony about a week ago. Though all the ceremonies(Introdduction, Customary and White Wedding) were private, fans were able to get some clips from guests who attended.
Only 300 guests were in attendance.
But in an email to Kemi Filani, the new husband revealed why they chose to wed in private.
According to the Adekunle Gold,who disclosed that they got engaged in 2018 and finally tied the knot in January 2019, it was a choice to have a quiet ceremony so as to get away from the crowd and limelight.
Speaking on his engagement with Simi alongside his new single titled ‘Promise’, Adekunle Gold said, “Earlier in 2018, I asked my girl of five years to be my wife. Knowing all of 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 couple also released scenes and moments from the wedding in the new collaboration titled ‘Promise’
