Nigerian RnB singer and ”Joromi” crooner Simi is in the news today for what you never expected. Her mum has tied the knot for the second time.
The marriage ceremony took place at Daystar church, Oregun Lagos. Jedidiah Ogunleye and her estranged husband got separated in 1997 and she’s been single ever since. The singer’s mother shared the testimony of her engagement in church on the eve of the New Year:
“I joined this church for over 20 years as a sinner. I will like to say a big thank you to Pastor Sam. My desire has always been to get married. Every Sunday, I’m always ushering couples to their seat and I love to see these couples ushered into the church because marriage is something I so much desire. Getting married has always been a particular goal I rewrite every year. My daughter Simi once told me that “mummy, this church you are going, it’s just young boys and youths that attend this church, you may never find a man of your age in that church.” But I trusted God too much.
Just this year a man walked into my life and as you can see, I am now engaged and would be getting married in January 2018.”
