The news of the secret introduction ceremony of Nigerian singers, Simi and Adekunle Gold, has stirred diverse reactions on social media.
The long-time lovers held their traditional marriage ceremony at a location inside the Eko Atlantic city on Thursday and it took many by surprise.
Some fans have expressed displeasure over what they described as the extreme secrecy of the wedding.
They held a secret engagement party in December.
The lovebirds who have been together for almost a decade have managed to keep their affair under the wraps, despite their celebrity status and public attention.
Their marriage was witnessed by a private audience of about 300 close family members, close friends and industry colleagues.
Some of the celebrities present at the wedding ceremony include Falz, Do2dtun, Smade, Praiz, Olamide, Moelogo, Pheelz and others.
However, it was gathered that celebrities were banned from taking pictures or recording videos at the wedding.
But a Cool FM presenter, N6, leaked a video from the star studded wedding on Instagram just as their fans have taken to social media to plead with the couple to release photos from their wedding.
