Nigerian singer Simi in a chat with PUNCH’s Sunday Scoop disclosed that she is in a relationship but does not intend to disclose partner’s name because she wants to keep her private life out of the public space.
“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 said.
There have been several comments on social media about an alleged love triangle between the singer and two of her colleagues Adekunle Gold and rapper Falz.
Simi also shared how she met the two artists.
She also disclosed that her and Falz’s hit collaboration “Soldier” was actually her song and when Falz heard it, decided that they work together on it.
“I met Adekunle Gold while I was performing at an event centre in Lagos. Unknown to me, he had been listening to me since I was a gospel artiste and he said he was a fan of my music.
At that time, 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.
As for Falz, he heard one of my works, and he reached out to me on Twitter. From there, we hooked up in the studio and did some things together. Soldier was actually my song, and when he heard it, we decided to work together on it,” she said.
