A week after exchanging marital vows with his heartthrob Simi, singer Adekunle Gold has revealed the real reason for making their wedding a private affair.
The ex-YBNL act said in a message on social media after posting a clip of his wedding with Simi on his YouTube channel, that they both have a slightly obsessive desire for a private life that belongs to them alone.
“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.
