A while back, Orente singer Adekunle Gold tweeted that he once asked the newly-married Adesua Etomi to be his girlfriend. The actress had said that she would only accept his request if he could get 50,000 retweets. However, in the process of meeting her “demands”, she announced her engagement to her sweetheart Banky W.

Adekunle Gold opened up in an interview with Punch that the whole thing was a joke and his tweets shouldn’t be taken seriously. 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 singer, who is about 30 years old, also spoke on dating fellow singer Simi, who he was allegedly romantically involved with. He said that he was thinking about marriage, claiming to be in a relationship but not revealing who this “mystery girlfriend was”.

“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.”

Well, a secret it shall be until someone unveils this “mystery”. Or what do you think?
