Adekunle Gold opens up on dating Banky W's wife and Simi

Adekunle Gold

Some months ago, Adekunle Gold asked Adesua Etomi now Mrs Adesua Wellington out on Twitter and she told him to get 50,000 retweets before she would date him. While he was still in the process of getting the retweets, she announced her engagement to Banky W.

In a new interview with Saturday Beats, Adekunle described the whole asking out incident as a joke, debunking the rumour that he had any sort of romantic relationship with Adesua.

He said,

"People do not know if Adesua is just my friend. They wouldn't know if my tweet was just banter or if it was real. I guess a lot of people thought it was real and I was asking Adesua out online. Why would I do that? We were just joking and she is my friend.

"I even tweeted when she got engaged that I'd not even got the 50, 000 retweets she asked for and she was already engaged. It was just banter but I guess people see what they want to see. Adesua and I never dated; we were/are just friends.

"If we had dated, I would have definitely worked towards marrying her. I mean, who would not want to marry Adesua That is 'if' we had dated but that was never the case."

The 30-year-old singer said he was already thinking about marriage and is in a relationship, however he refused to admit or deny if the lady in question is fellow musician, Simi.

He said,

"I am also thinking of marriage because I am a family man. Already, I have a girlfriend but I would not tell you if she is in this industry. I don't have to tell you if I am dating Simi or not. I cannot reveal my girlfriend's identity because it could be that she does not want to be known. It could be that I want that aspect of my life to be a secret. People know and love me because of my music. I cannot be married for 10 years and people would not eventually find out. When the time is right, everyone would know who my love interest is. Let's assume that I am dating Simi, what if it does not work out? I'd love to keep that part of my life secret."

Lately, Adekunle Gold and Simi have been rumoured to be dating, however both singers are yet to confirm or debunk the rumour.
