Falz’s supposed reaction to the news of Simi and Adekunle Gold getting married last week has since gone viral on social media, sparking off speculations that he may be heartbroken and grappling with the pangs of heartbreak.
While messages congratulating the singers on their alleged wedding ceremony flooded the social media, instead of joining the likes of Davido, Ric Hassani, Don Jazzy, and many other celebrities who congratulated them, Falz posted the picture of a crying child on Twitter, a post which has been concluded to portray his mood as at the time he received the news.
Recall that at some point Falz was rumoured to be romantically involved with Simi but both singers rubbished the claims on different occasions, insisting that they were mere friends.
“I’m not dating Falz. I was not dating Falz. I never said I was dating Falz”, Simi had insisted during an interview session on Wazobia Max’s ‘Talk Talk’.
Though she admitted being in a romantic relationship during an interview but she refused to reveal the identity of the person for personal reasons.
“I always like to keep my personal life away from the public. All I can say is that I am in a relationship but I just don’t want to disclose the person’s name”, she had said.
She also explained how she met Adekunle Gold, but declined to speak on her relationship with him.
“When I met Adekunle Gold, I just knew him as a graphic artist, popularly referred to as the ‘King of Photoshop’. I didn’t even know he was a singer, but we just became close from there.”
During one of her numerous denials she revealed that Falz was just someone she met on social media. In her defense, her relationship with Falz is professional, stating that he contacted her after listening to some of her songs, and boom, they recorded ‘Jamb Question’.
Even though Falz and Simi continually denied being an item, the public continued to see them so because all indications pointed in that direction, but she knew where her heart belonged.
At a point, it seemed like Falz and Adekunle Gold were consciously trying to outwit each other but as fate would have it, Adekunle Gold won her heart.
