THE might come across as a neophyte but sultry singer, Simi has said that she is ready to give her peers in the music industry a run for their money.
Speaking with The Nation recently, the songstress, who featured in Falz’s much talked about video Soldier, says that she doesn’t feel threatened by anybody.
“This is not because I don’t think anybody else is good, it’s just that there is enough room for anybody to fly. I’m not trying to compete, so anytime I see someone trying to do amazing things, I always pray for the best for everybody.
I’m glad that we have more females that are standing out in the industry because usually, it’s really hard,” she says. On her forth-coming album, the Love Don’t Care crooner says that all hands are on deck towards a successful outcome.
“I won’t be disclosing the number of tracks and title for now because it is still in the works, but my fans should rest assured that the album will drop this year all things possible,” she revealed. Born Simisola Bolatito Ogunleye, Simi is a Mass Communications graduate.
She wrote her very first tune at the age of 10 and started out singing and dancing in her early teens as a member of the teenage church choir. Eventually, she went on to launch her debut album in 2008, which was produced by Samklef. The album spawned hits such as Ara Ile, Ogaju, Iya Temi,to name a few.
Simi is signed to X3M Music, the Lagos-based record label that is home to Nigerian R&B sensation, Praiz; recording artist and song writer, Sammy, as well as recording and performing rap artiste; D-Truce.
