• The singer and his wife have a 3 year old daughter.
Nigerian superstar Adekunle Gold is opening up about fatherhood and what greatly inspires him to always stretch the extra mile.
The 36-year-old superstar highlighted that his family was his happy place during an interview with media personality Tayo Aina maintaining his daughter, Adejare whom he shares with fellow superstar Nigerian songstress Simi is his biggest motivating factor.
Speaking about his daughter, he noted that he and his wife, Simi, plan to raise her like a queen ensuring that she never lives the life of struggle that he did growing up.
"It is a huge responsibility, one that I love by the way, knowing that I have this huge responsibility to raise a queen. My family is my center, I told you before.
You know that you asked me where I'm happy, my happy place, it's where they are. That is the reason why I'm hustling hard men! Because this girl, the life that I lived growing up, she can't do the same. That's the reason I'm dropping school fees music for you people," the '5 Star' hit maker joyfully said.
On how he juggles raising their child with stardom the singer responded with a smile noting that the fact that they're both musicians makes it more beautiful.
"I think that's why it's even more beautiful because I don't have to do plenty of explaining because she understands and I understand as well. If she needs to go somewhere we shuffle it, like right now she is in Lagos working. Thankfully we have family around to help with Deja," Gold revealed.
He expressed his happiness about the fact that he and his wife are thriving, despite their different schedules, and how they are both able to parent their toddler.
Gold and Simi lead such a private life that the day they got married in 2019, it was only speculated that they were tying the knot. On top of that, the pictures from their nuptials were not released until they were ready.
Similarly, in 2020, they kept the news that they were expecting a child under wraps until it was announced in Simi's Duduke video.
The couple did not disclose that Deja was born until a week after Simi gave birth, and the public did not get a glimpse of their child until May 2021 when Simi posted the beautiful pictures to her Instagram.
