A social media storm has erupted as Nigerian music producer Samklef took to X (formerly known as Twitter), to express his sentiments about singer Simi, sparking a heated exchange between him and the latter’s husband, Adekunle Gold.

In a series of now-deleted tweets on Sunday, Samklef revealed that he harboured feelings for Simi in the past but chose not to pursue them to maintain a professional relationship. He then went on to label Simi and fellow artist Ric Hassani as “the two most ungrateful artistes” he has ever worked with.

But, Simi’s husband Adekunle Gold swiftly responded, defending his wife and urging Samklef to stop disrespecting her.

Adekunle Gold’s response escalated the confrontation as he admonished Samklef, stating, “Simi does not owe you shit, and it is about time you stopped calling her name every 3 market days. If anything, you owe me! Stop fooling around and act your age!”

Samklef retaliated with a comment suggesting his influence in Simi’s career, stating, “Dear Adekunle, I made your wife Simi cry .”

The altercation further intensified as Adekunle Gold labelled Samklef as “an idiot and a fool,” emphasising his age and legacy. He wrote, “Congratulations. Now make yourself! idiot. You are pushing 40 and look at what’s left of your legacy; foolishness. Aridin Agba.”

Simi has not publicly commented on the issue as at press time.

This clash between Samklef and Adekunle Gold is not the first time the music producer has been embroiled in a public controversy. In October 2023, he clashed with Davido and more recently accused Portable, another Nigerian artist, of having a “bad character.”

The exchange between Samklef and Adekunle Gold has ignited discussions across social media platforms, with fans and industry insiders weighing in on the feud.
