Adekunle Gold who celebrated Simi via Instagram, recounted how he was one hour late before hitting the stage because the most important stage lights blew out during his concert last year. Celebrating Simi for putting up a beautiful, electrifying performance at her concert in spite of the drag session, he wrote;
Last year an hour before I hit the stage, I was informed that some of the most important stage lights blew out. I sat down in my car backstage reading unkind tweets of irate bloggers and people about how late I was. It was demoralizing and painful because we were ready and I was there.
The truth is, things happen sometimes that the public don’t see. Know this, we your true fans know you were sorry. And before the clouds of those reviews set in, I would like to cover you in Joy and celebration. You were beautiful, electrifying and incredible tonight my darling. I am so proud of you. Thank you for letting me share that stage with you. It will always be my honour. Forever in your army fighting for you. AG
Reacting to the post, Simi wrote ‘I love you so so fucking much’ and it got fans and even celebrities talking about the duo’s friendship. Here is a screenshot of the exchange below;
