Nigerian Celebrity Couple, Adekunle Gold and his wife, Simi have joined numerous Nigerians who have reacted to the ongoing drama about marriages at the Ikoyi Registry being declared invalid by a Court.
Since news of a Court declaring Marriages conducted by the Ikoyi registry illegal and invalid went viral, Simi and Adekunle Gold couldn’t help but banter over the reports.
On December 13th, the Federal High Court in Lagos ruled that the federal government’s conduct of marriages was unconstitutional, declaring all solemnizations of unions at the Ikoyi marriage registration in Lagos to be illegal and invalid.
Justice D. E. Osiagor, the judge, asserted that the conducting of marriages and the issuance of certificates were statutorily the responsibility of local governments.
The judge went on to say that the federal government’s actions in establishing marriage registries through the Ministry of Interior were outside its authority and that any marriages conducted by federal marriage registries or their agents were illegal and illegitimate.

As a result, he ordered the immediate closure of all federal marriage registries opened by the ministry, including the Ikoyi marriage registry.
Simi, on the other hand, asked her husband, AG baby, whether they’ve been living in sin because they’re not married officially.
Adekunle Gold told her that wasn’t his issue, and all he wanted was for Ikoyi Registry to reimburse his money.
Another artist, Banky W reacted to the news by jokingly referring to his gorgeous wife, Adesua, as his baby mama on Twitter, given the fact that their marriage is considered unlawful and void.
