Wale Bello, the manager of pop musician, Simi, has confirmed that the singer and Adekunle Gold had their traditional wedding on Wednesday.
The entertainment guru explained this in an exclusive chat with The Punch Saturday Beat.
“Adekunle Gold and Simi are already married. They got married on Wednesday in a close-knit ceremony,” he confirmed.
He later corrected the misinformation that they had their white wedding this week: “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.”
Addressing the secrecy of the ceremony, Bello said, “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 tied the knot with long-time sweetheart, Adekunle Gold, in a private hall with only 300 guests at the Eko Hotels, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Social media has been awash with messages of support and goodwill for the lovebirds.
