FALZ AND SIMI – COULD THIS BE LOVE?


.
“...Soldier go, soldier come, soldier do waitn you want, but don’t fall in love with me...” – that was the first thing we heard before we started hearing: “...but I know, I kind of maybe really do like you/ Baby me and you we can try to/ Do this love something...” from Aunty Simi when they sang the Chemistry of their questionable love life. Maybe she was then trying to consider him, maybe not.



Again, in that same Chemistry lab, we heard Uncle Falz singing: “...even if me and you make the worst couple, if we no date oh, e go cause trouble...”, and we nodded in agreement. Later we started hearing Anty Simi, singing her reply “...I know I said I wanted to be friends oh/ The truth be say, that one na pretend o/ Maybe we can start again, forget waitn I tell you then, do you feel the chemistry...” – Hmmm! By then, I think she’s drunk in the said love. We still nodded to that one shaa. Well, we had to, after all we are fans, or rather students of these subjects, and they’re the carriers – we’re spellbound in their titration of these ‘love chemicals’. But we are also observant onlookers, should in case they don’t know.

Now, lemme kukuma spill some gossips here before I continue. On one of the shows the duo attended, they were made to chew lips in public as a result of fans’ curiosity and persuasion. At first, their fans crowded, asking them questions along the lines of – “are you guys really dating; are you in love; are you planning to get married?” and so on.


 After which they started clamouring that the duo should kiss and the both of them finally did, at least to quench the curiosity of their fans to an extent. Again, stories are that Falz once uploaded a video of him and his girlfriend (another girl) on YouTube, another rumour had it that Simi is dating Adekunle Gold, and another rumour has it that Simi is pregnant. Uhmm, eheee! I think I’m done gossiping.
.
Taking into consideration the above uncertain advances made by these two artistes, one would be more confused than one would understand. But such is the stuff celebrities are known for. It is rare here in our country, for musicians per se to publicly fall in love; it mostly happens behind the scenes, unlike abroad where celebs come open with their love affair; ‘JayZ & Beyonce’, ‘Alicia Keys & Swizz Beat’ are good examples.
.

Bringing it down to our afro lifestyle, one would be forced to say that
Falz & Simi are becoming more romantic than others in Nigeria Music Industry, because most Nigerian artistes have little or no intention of making their love life known to the public. One would only say so, owning to the fact that Falz & Simi went as far as producing a full album, travelling to places together, and taking lovely photo shoots. But the question remains – could this really be love?
.
Truth is that ‘Love’ is so engaging that it becomes more fascinating when the couple have the same flair in career, hobby and gusto. They love and work to achieve greatness, just like bread and butter does to attain taste; like milk and coffee works to enhance agility and like almighty groundnut does with garri to make the stomach happy (those conversant with soaking garri will understand more). But, Love doesn’t work like that always.

What am I insinuating? Am I insinuating that even with the romantic spices in Falz & Simi’s rhymes, even with the dramatic escapades in their songs, even with the kisses, lovely photos and whatnots – there are greater chances that they feel nothing for each other? – YES I AM. I am insinuating that, because the last time I checked, love can be as wicked and unsentimental as that.


Thank heavens that Anty Simi made it very clear in the beginning of this Chemistry class by singing thus; “Everybody think they would be good together o/ Everybody don dey talk say make you be my lover ooh o/ But they don’t even know if I’m your spec oo/ I don’t even know if I take your breath away...”. Okay oo, una don hear am naa.

Love is a two-edged sword, maybe that’s why God is Love, and the Word is God, because the Word is also said to be a two-edged sword. That’s actually the origin of LOVE, but let’s leave that topic for another day.

Love is not what you feel because you do the same thing as me, it’s not what you feel because we are partners in a theatrical performance made to entertain people, it isn’t what you feel simply because I foot your bills or kissed you or even have canal affairs with you. Love is a soul-to-soul thing, you don’t just feel it, it envelopes you even when you don’t want it. Love is not questionable when you see the right person; it just takes its turn without permission. No compromises, no long talks, no nothing. .
.
Crazy enough, sometimes you don’t even have to earn love before it comes to you; it is so free that it mostly comes to those who doesn’t deserve it. It is so sacred, so precious, and so harmless only if you understand its content before sipping. But like a bottle of alcohol, love is also intoxicating, you can get drunken if care isn’t taken.


It is a two-edged sword in the sense that it works for people who have same flair and sometimes do not, it is sweet and sometimes bitter. Suffice it to say, it comes with a sack of treasures and thorns. Which is why one is supposed to examine it well before getting involved, and as well handle with care when it finally comes. LOL! Before you get too emotional, lemme jeje come and be going.

We are passengers of life, who came naked from dust and shall return to dust. Beyond HERE is a Paradise for saints and Doom for sinners, but before this train of life transits us, there’s still little time to decide.
