Winner of the “Most Promising Act to Watch” category at the 2015 Nigeria Entertainment Awards, Simisola Bolatito Ogunleye, professionally known and referred to as Simi, has proven that she can hold her own in the Nigerian music industry.
Speaking recently on her experience on Coke Studio Africa 4, the 28 year old soul songstress “Jamb Question” fame, revealed that being a part of the show has opened her to lots of opportunities, she never imagined possible.
“I remember last year when I was really hoping I would be on Coke Studio. When the call finally came this year, I felt very flattered and excited. For me, my entire coke studio 4 journey had been all about my passion for music. It has been so much fun working on Coke Studio 4 because it made me come out of my comfort zone and do things I had never done before. It has been a great learning experience and I am glad Coca-Cola made me a part of this season.”
Simi started her career as a gospel singer, releasing her debut studio album in 2006 titled Ogaju. Her career came into spotlight in 2014 after she released “Tiff”, a song which was nominated in two categories at The Headies 2015.
