Despite his efforts to get in touch, she remained oblivious to his advances until fate intervened.
An Unexpected Meeting:
Their paths crossed at one of Simi’s gospel concerts, where Adekunle Gold made an appearance.

Persistence Pays Off:
Simi admitted that she initially considered dating Adekunle Gold months after their first meeting, primarily due to his unwavering pursuit.
She reminisced, stating that in the gospel community, she had gained a significant level of recognition, and Adekunle Gold had even heard her album at the time.
A Show that Sparked a Connection:
The Nigerian singer further shared that their paths intertwined once again at her show called Bogobiri.
Adekunle Gold made an appearance, donning a slim physique and the same white BYC shirt and jeans.
He came to see Simi perform and expressed his admiration as a fan.
This encounter laid the foundation for a friendship between them.
From Friendship to Romance:
As their friendship developed throughout that year, Adekunle Gold eventually mustered the courage to ask Simi out.
Simi acknowledged that despite projecting an image of independence, she still appreciated a kind-hearted individual like Adekunle Gold and agreed to give their relationship a chance.
Reflecting on their early encounters, Simi highlighted the role of persistence and genuine connection in laying the groundwork for their relationship.
