Born Simisola Bolatito Ogunleye but widely known as Simi, this talented Nigerian singer and songwriter has over the years churned out great love songs many can not get enough of.
The singer who recently tied the knot with her man Adekunle Gold, is known for her beautifully crafted lovce songs with many having carved a spot in the hearts of millions across the globe.
Simi in an interview stated that she has always wanted to do music.
I didn’t grow up around a lot of music because my parents aren’t music inclined. I wrote my first song when I was 10 years old. I have a very short attention span and it is one of the reasons why I experiment a lot with my music.
My parents separated when I was nine years old, so I did not spend so much time with my dad; he died in 2014. My parents were quite supportive of my career at first.
After I bagged a degree in Mass Communication, from Covenant University, my mother wanted me to get some job experience by working with an oil firm. I have always been of the opinion that its impossible to do music part-time, so I asked her to pray for the success of my music career.
She first started her music journey as a gospel singer before switching to commercial music, a decision that many came at her for.
On her reason for switching, the Joromi crooner said;
The first thing that comes to the mind is that I did it for monetary reasons. However music became about ‘more’; I wanted to have a broader purview. It was a tough decision for me to make at first. I wanted to explore music more. My faith in God hasn’t waivered because before I went mainstream, I prayed to God to bless my career if it was his plan for me. I also don’t see myself doing gospel music again.
Not just being a singer, Simi has also delved into production and sound engineering in the course of her career.
I am also a sound engineer, so I mix and master music. This a major boost to my career because it means that there are a lot of things I can do on my own. It has also proven to a lot of critics that I am not just another artiste.
