“He was chasing me all over facebook. When I was still doing gospel music he used to listen to my songs. He sent me a message on Facebook and that was how we met. I didn’t know him at the time. I didn’t respond either. The first time I ever saw him was at a show at Bogobiri, he told me that he was going to be there and I said ‘sure’. He came and that was how we met. Over the years we were friends at first. When I first met him I just knew him as the king of Photoshop, I didn’t know he was also a musician”, she said.
She added that till now, some of her fans still wish she got married to rapper, Falz, instead of Adekunle Gold. “People thinking it was Falz I would have gotten married to was funny. I still get comments from people in my DM that they wish it was Falz I got married to”, she said.
Speaking further, she explained what it is like to be married.
“Now you’re part of a different family, I’m talking extended family now; so you have to be very conscious. You know your boyfriend’s mom is different from your husband’s mom, she’s now like your mom. So there are things that you have to adapt to. Adekunle Gold’s mom is incredible; the experience is all good”, she said.
