Music’s power couple Adekunle Gold and Simi are Afrobeats faves for many reasons, from blessing our ears individually with singles like his Rodo and her Men Are Crazy featuring Tiwa Savage to making magic like Look What You Made Me Do, an offshoot of the admirable chemistry, reflecting the harmony of their distinct yet beautiful voices/personas on a song mirroring their love…

In a recent interview, ESSENCE goes behind the scenes with the musical duo as they revealed their favourite beauty products and the feel-good practices that keep their relationship strong. From budget-friendly finds to luxurious indulgences, get ready for some serious couple goals and skincare tips – all with that signature Adekunle Gold and Simi charm we know you love!

When asked what their favourite couple care memory is, Simi said:

During the pandemic, I was pregnant and the world was on lockdown. We were in a little apartment somewhere in Texas for about 11 months. We set up a little recording studio in the tiny closet, watched TV shows every night, and took walks. He baked me a cake for my birthday and it tasted strange but I loved it.

Another favorite is on our honeymoon. We had booked a room and when we got to the hotel, we decided to use up all our savings and upgraded to the presidential suite instead. We had a blast.

When asked what beauty products they have introduced each other to, Adekunle Gold said:

Simi has really sensitive skin, so it’s unlikely that we share the same products. I think we only really share hair products. I recommended a lotion brand to her once, but she didn’t use it, it smelled too sweet, she said. She prefers to use products that are fragrance-free and more natural. I usually go with what’s most expensive and smells eccentric.
