Nigerian singer-songwriters, Simisola “Simi” Bolatiti Ogunleye, and her husband, Adekunle Kosoko, popularly known as Adekunle Gold, are expecting their first child together. This heartwarming news was revealed to the world in the music video for Simi’s new track, "Duduke," released Sunday, April 19th, 2020.

You may recall Simi and Adekunle exchanged marital vows in January 2019 and since then, they've become one of Nigeria’s favorite couples. Prior to marriage, the couple dated for about five years, though no one is certain for how long as it was kept private. Their wedding followed a similar pattern; it was a secret affair until made public only after it happened. However, Simi and Adekunle gave a sneak peek of their wedding in their music video titled, “Promise.” The track features Simi and Adekunle singing a love song that could easily have many feeling sappy and romantic. On social media, fans fawned over the video and characterized the couple's love as beautiful.

Although the pregnancy reveal was a surprise to most, rumors had trended on social media but were shut down due to no real evidence. On Simi's 32nd birthday, Adekunle wrote a love note to her on social media but even then, he kept the upcoming pregnancy reveal under wraps. Later that same day, Simi released the music video for "Duduke" where it showed her pregnant wearing a bright yellow dress.

In the "Duduke" video, Simi’s happiness is evident as she parades and dances with joy. The video lasts for three minutes and was set on a beach. In addition to the setting, even the song's lyrics and Simi's vocal delivery felt serene while she described the "treasure" she had been waiting and praying for. The video was directed by Adasa Cookey, a notable music video director, and produced by Oscar, another heavyweight in Nigeria's music industry.

Currently, the gender of Simi and Adekunle's child is not publicly known but based on the colors in the video, most of which are blue, some say the baby is a boy. Others say that because Simi began the video wearing a beautiful yellow dress, the baby is girl.

Only time will tell who's right but in the meantime, Simi has given her fans yet another great track to enjoy.
