Last week, reports about Adekunle Gold’s secret wedding with Simi wedding went viral on social media. Many Nigerians applauded them for keeping their relationship on a low key and the marriage process secret.
But while the secret marriage was going on, some wahala Nigerians decided to drag Falz into the affair, insisting that if the ‘bahd guy’ had been the sharp guy instead, he and not Adekunle would probably have been the bride.
Some Nigerians used the opportunity to talk about principles and morality…
Since the couple refused to bless the public with pictures of their happy day, trust Nigerians to do themselves the honours…
We wish the musical couple a happy married life. We just hope they don’t come tomorrow to tell us it was a music video they were shooting, not actual wedding.
World’s Richest Man, Jeff Bezos’ Marriage Of 25 years Crashes
CEO and President of tech company Amazon, Jeff Bezos, and his wife MacKenzie announced their intention to part ways after a 25-year marriage.
Although he and his wife described each other as ‘cherished friends’ and their divorce ‘amicable’, world people won’t let them rest as they went about speculating how the former power couple would split their $137 billion fortune.
But there is genuine worry concerning how the divorce could affect Jeff’s company, Amazon.
Amazon’s value would likely dip if Jeff loses control of the company. It is for this reason that divorce attorneys think it is unlikely that MacKenzie would push for a settlement that would force him to sell shares and lose control of the company. We wish them well going forward.
