Many Nigerians have reacted to Brymo’s recent revelation about his supposed failed collaboration with Simi, calling him out for his lack of professionalism. Simi’s husband, Adekunle Gold, has also added his two cents. After Brymo made what appeared to be a disparaging remark about the Kosokos, the award-winning singer stood up for his wife.
Adekunle Kosoko, better known by his stage name Adekunle Gold, is a Nigerian Afrofusion singer, songwriter, and performer who recently criticized fellow musician Brymo for a recent remark he made about his wife, Simi. After sharing a post on award-winning singer Simi, who is also Adekunle Gold’s wife and child’s mother, on Friday, July 21, 2023, the contentious Brymo incited a commotion.

Brymo responded to the query he had cited with the startling statement.
Adekunle Gold took a break from promoting his upcoming fifth studio album, “Tequila Ever After,” which is confirmed to include Simi, as was to be expected and addressed Brymo. The rock star urged Brymo to seek assistance and clarified that he should stop disrespecting his wife and family. He stated:
