News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that news of the wedding between the two music stars broke on Wednesday morning causing a frenzy on social media.
Reacting to the news, Falz shared a video (gif) of a young girl with tears running down her cheeks on his Twitter page @Falzthebahdguy which fans found funny.
At the time of this report, Adekunle Gold, Simi and Falz are the top three trends on Twitter as fans have taken to the social network to congratulate the couple and express their surprise.
