You were beautiful, electrifying and incredible tonight my darling, Adekunle Gold tells Simi despite criticisms
Singer, Adekunle Gold has been defending his ‘girlfriend’ Simi after she was brutally criticised for starting her show late on Sunday.
Simi Live was scheduled to kick off at 6 pm but did not take to the stage until 10: 30 pm.
The event held at Balmoral Convention Centre, Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island,
Despite rendering an unreserved apology, fans still criticised her for failing to keep to time, with many branding her as “unprofessional.”
Unable to stand the attacks, Adekunle Gold, 31, took to Instagram on Monday to celebrate the songstress and thanked her for giving him the opportunity to share the stage with her.
“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.”
