Nigerian singer-songwriter, Simisola Bolatito Ogunleye, is gearing for the release of her sophomore album entitled ‘Simisola’.
The 29-year-old singer made this known in a post on her Instagram page on Tuesday.
Simi has in the last two years put out several hit songs, some of which she was featured on.
Tiff, Jamb Question, Love Don’t Care and Smile For Me, solo efforts of the singer, enjoyed commercial success.
Soldier and Chemistry, also relatively successful, appeared on a joint EP she recorded with Falz.
The singer’s debut album ‘Ogaju’ was released in 2006. At the time, her genre of music was gospel.
She would also release an EP entitled ‘The Restless’ in 2014 before getting signed to X3M Music, owned by Steve Babaeko.
In an interview with TheCable Lifestyle in 2016, Simi said the art of making music is special to her.
“It’s like my secret language and it’s the one thing that I don’t need an incentive to do. When I’m creating music, I feel like I’m in my special place and when I’m listening to music, I feel like I can do anything. In summary, music is magic to me,” she had said.
Simi also spoke about her process of creating music, saying, “Writing, for me, usually happens in bits and pieces. I get an idea or a melody and I put it down. Then I have days when I tune everything else out and write. On those days, I expand the idea or melody. Some songs don’t take time, others do”.
The set date for the album release is Friday, September 8.
