Singer Simi is still keeping her relationship with Adekunle Gold low key, even though there have been numerous headlines about the pair since 2015. In this interview with Pulse, she got to talk about Adekunle Gold, how she handles criticism and her love for football and Manchester United.
On her relationship with Gold Simi told Pulse:
“I don’t know why people are obsessed with me and Adekunle Gold, why, I suppose it because we do music together and his voice is on one of my songs and my voice is on one of his songs, so it does make people think something is going on, I can’t seem to dodge this question but I guess it is what it is.”
On celebrities who show off their relationship online she said:
“I am a very private person, I’m very careful with the things I put out there because I know whatever I put out there is going to go public that’s why am very careful.”
On handling criticism:
” There was a time I use to say, why are people so stressed out about my skirt for example, and then I realized that people can have their own opinion. I am honesty the kind of person who doesn’t know how to be stressed about something. I know every person has the chance to get better. Honestly, I am not a fashion person. I like the sneakers, I like the T-shirt and face cap. That’s how I get comfortable.
I’m just an artist, I love to sing and write, this is just me but if you are going to sit down and just bash me…there are people that actually me and advise me and you would know it is coming from their heart and there are those who just want to say something bad” she reveals.
If she isn’t doing any of these things, she is most likely watching her favourite football team, Manchester United play.
” I think I started falling in love with the club like two or three years ago when I have any free time I watch football, I genuinely love the game because, besides Music and Love, Football is the next thing” she says with a huge smile.
