Have you heard this girl sing?

Simi is indeed a voice to be heard!!
Simi first came onto the Nigerian music scene when she launched her debut album in 2008 for which she got impressive airplay on Naija airwaves at the time.. Produced in its entirety by popular producer, Samklef , it was released in June, 2008 with tracks including Ara Ile, Ogaju, Iya Temi and more. Since then, Simi has begun work on her sophomore album and earlier released two singles ‘Take a Chance’ (produced by JTreash) and Emi Lonijo (produced by Kollo).
And now she has released another single ‘Chocolate Brown’, excellently produced by Rotimikeys and mixed by Olaitan Dada, which is taking Naija by storm at the moment. Now this is what we call "Beautiful Music, Beautiful Sound" coming from the shores of Nigeria...Am really proud to hear this kind of music coming up from our very own naija babe. Go On Soun jooor!!

Her musical influences include artistes like Asa, Natasha Beddingfield, Michael Buble, Cobhams. Her mum, Olushola Jedidiah Ogunleye, as well as her Pastors, Rev. Sam Adeyemi and Pastor Nike Adeyemi, have also been strong rocks of assistance in her existence and career.
