Simi talks about Adekunle Gold, raising kids. social media hate and football

During her interview with Pulse, singer Simi got to talk about Adekunle Gold, how she handles criticism and her love for football and Manchester United.

The public has been obsessed
with Simi and fellow singer Adekunle Gold. There have been numerous
headlines about the pair since 2015.
When asked why people are obsessed with both of them, Simi said “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.”
of celebrities who keep their relationships under the radar and those
who love to show off their love life on social media, the beautiful
musician said she’s an advocate for doing whatever makes you happy. She
went further by saying “” 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.”
During her interview, Simi explained what she meant when she said she would hide her kid’s identity until they turned 26.

I have seen kids do stuff on Instagram, it drives me crazy and I’m like
what is a 9-year-old child doing on the Internet, he should be watching
cartoons or play Super Mario and that’s not happening. I remember when I
was 9 all I was thinking about was my storybook and the holy bible.

Now there is access to all these things, I think parents need to do
more to protect their children. I know it is not easy but it’s crazy
because I know the kind of things I see on the internet. Even as an
adult you need to dodge these things talk less of a child that is still
forming their values and ideas”
she explained.


On how she manages to shrug off critics who come for her because of her fashion style.

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.
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.
She also said “The
truth is I am not bothered. When you say you are not bothered, they say
you are actually bothered maybe I should say I am bothered (Laughs). If
you want to talk about it then its fine. I am good! I am fine! I don’t
even know what to say…”
Apart from
recording music and mixing, Simi loves to read. Also, when she is not
in the studio she reads or plays scrabble on her phone. She also loves
to hang out with her very close small circle of friends and she doesn’t
turn up because she’s a really private person.
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.
