Did you know Simi’s full name is Simisola Bolatito?
You might also know that the cute vocal powerhouse only featured her friend and equally fast rising artiste, Adekunle Gold on her latest album, Simisola.
Just as you know again, about the rumours of a romantic relationship between the two singers.
But, in a recent chat, the “Joromi” Singer explained that Adekunle Gold barely made the cut to be on the album.
She said, “The only reason why I have just Adekunle Gold on the album is because after we had done all the songs we were going to do, the only song that had a feature that made the final list was the one that Adekunle Gold was on. There is no big story.”
So it actually was not that big of a deal. Bummer!
Anyway, Simi is excited about the success of the album and overwhelmed by its reception.
“Acceptance of the album has been extremely amazing. People have been very supportive. I’m excited to be experiencing this right now,” she said.
Recently, the 15-track eponymous album which was released about two weeks ago charted number 5 on Billboard World Music charts as well as number 1 on iTunes and Apple Music.
The album is Simi’s first effort since joining X3m Music in 2014.
