Adekunle Gold and Simi
Nigerian couple and singers, Simi and Adekunle Gold have reacted after a Federal High court declared marriages carried out at the Ikoyi Marriage Registry as illegal and invalid.
A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos ruled that it is unconstitutional for the federal government to conduct marriages and all marriages conducted by federal marriage registries or through their agents are illegal and invalid.

Her husband, Adekunle, responded: “My own na make dem do refund.”
