The next time you listen to Adekunle Gold’s hit song, ‘Orente’, you should probably pay close attention because it was inspired by Adekunle’s personal love story.
The singer has revealed that the hit song was written for his singer girlfriend, Simi.
The revelation came after a Twitter user asked Simi if she was the inspiration behind ‘Orente’, to which Adekunle responded, confirming that he wrote it for her.
Simi, who turns a year older today, had written out her full name while wishing herself a happy birthday, writing: Happy birthday Simisola Bolatito Adeola Opeyemi Oreoluwa Ogunkeye.
This prompted the Twitter user to make the connection as Adekunle calls out all Simi’s names in the song – ‘Orente Iyawo, Orente Adeola, Orente Bolatito, Orente Opeyemi, Orente Omo dada, orente mi’.
Simi who’s signed to Xtreme music and has been romantically linked to Falz The Bad Guy, has been an item with Adekunle Gold for a while now.
The couple have however managed to keep their relationship under the radar, with both parties refusing to directly comment on it.
