What’s going on with Simi and Falz? And where does Adekunle Gold fall in this equation?
Brethren, like it or not as Nigerians we all have been racking our brains for a while now trying to find the answer to this imperative ‘jamb question’-- ‘Are Simi and Falz an item? No doubt we’ve all noticed the ‘chemistry’ between these two and recently the pair debuted a couple of wedding themed photos which had the entire nation even more excited about their supposed love. The pictures spent no time in causing social media uproar.
Some unauthentic sources claimed the pictures were from their pre wedding shoot. Days later however, the duo announced that the pictures were actually promo for their upcoming EP ‘Chemistry’. Even after their announcement twitter was still not letting go of the false buzz. Instead they had as much fun with it as they could. Memes upon memes were tweeted and some of them are admittedly hilarious.
The pair was even tagged as the official sweethearts of the Nigerian music industry. However, according to many sources, Simi and Adekunle Gold are currently in a solid 5 year relationship. So what’s the dealio? Are Falz and Simi pulling a ‘Jhene Aiko and Big Sean’? Does this mean there's trouble in paradise for Simi and Adekunle Gold? And if not, how is Adekunle Gold comfortable with all this? There are so many questions we need answers to!
Folarin Falana who goes by his popular stage name ‘Falz the Bahd Guy’ quickly rose to fame after his popular ‘ello bae’ skits on Instagram. Eventually we got to know him better as a rapper and he blew our minds with many hits like ‘Karashika’ and ‘Marry Me’. He later collaborated with Simi for the hit ‘Jamb Question’ and then did it again with ‘Soldier’, now they have an EP called ‘Chemistry’. Jhene Aiko and Big Sean also have an EP… hmm is this a sign? Nevertheless these two undoubtedly make crazily beautiful music.
All of their songs amazing in their own rights have caused the media to ask a lot of questions. Are they dating? One might argue that the reason these two are always seen around each other is because of their multiple musical collaborations however, it can only explain their ‘chemistry’—yes I did it again, sue me. Lol—to an extent. These two seem to genuinely love each other’s company. They are constantly filmed and photographed together laughing and having fun. You would most likely see the pair headlining events together rather than separately. So, are they friends with benefits or is it all strictly business between the two songbirds? This question begs for an answer most especially because Simi is rumored to be YBNL-signed Adekunle Gold’s bae. You just read that last word in Falz’s voice didn’t you? LOL.
Well, according to thenet.ng, Adekunle Gold and Simi have been dating for a quite a while. Multiple sources report that their relationship started way before either of them were in the public eye. If you’ve listened to Adekunle’s GOLD Album—if you haven’t you should, it’s fantastic!—you probably heard Simi’s vocals as backup for most of the songs and you’ll notice that she was the only feature on his entire album. Their song ‘No Forget’ is just as electric as any Simi & Falz song there is. Simi, who is a master of mixing tracks, also mixed every song on his album apart from one. But this is not enough proof that the pair are an item, yet alone 5 years deep in a relationship. There is really no solid evidence that Adekunle and Simi are dating or even ever dated. They’ve been photographed here and there but, it’s all still a little sketchy. If they are really together then these two are about the two sneakiest pair in the entertainment industry. Lowkey is definitely an understatement.
When addressing dating rumours, Simi is never direct; rather, she prefers to have a little fun with it. A fan asked her earlier this year if she was one of Adekunle Gold’s ‘former ex-girlfriends’ and this was her response;
Present ex-wife?....hmm, well she didn’t say they were never together right? Uhh! Still so confused. Simi we need answers!
Please shed some light on your ever-so-secret love life so that all of us Nigerians can finally get a good night’s rest. Forever your loving fan, Adeyinka.
Adekunle and Simi are almost never seen in public together unlike Simi and Falz who are in the spotlight at almost every opportunity. There are photos of the two before major fame, but none now that they’re both huge stars. Falz is a frequent guest star on Simi’s snapchat likewise, Simi is usually on his. Recently it was Falz’s birthday and Simi took to Instagram to congratulate her friend and fellow artiste by posting a picture of their performance together at ‘Industry Nite’
Yet another ‘close’ picture of the pair together.
Thenet.ng reports that Simi and Adekunle are tighter than a knot despite all of the speculations. A source for thenet.ng said “Even now that Adekunle is on tour in US, his car is with Simi and she still goes to his house. She’s just good friends with Falz nothing more. Just so you know, Simi mixed and mastered Adekunle Gold’s album, if they aren’t cool together will she do that?”
Whatever the situation may be, it appears Adekunle strongly supports his boo despite the social media ruckus, tweeting the cover of the duo’s EP.
The cover features a topless Simi and also a shirtless Falz. One might say that for ‘just friends’ Simi and Falz are dangerously close in this picture. Ello, Mr. Falana why har yew so clozz to harnoder man’s bae? Please endeavor to shift back. The measure of closeness between you two could fuel an atomic bomb!—you get it? Cause their EP is called Chemistry? No ? I get, I get it. I’m Boron…..LOL. Okay I’m done.
Might this ‘love triangle’ just be a parallel line we’ve all misjudged? Who knows? Maybe Simi isn’t even dating either of them. All we can say is, we hope whomever any of the three ends up with gives them a lot of joy and makes them happy.
