Our celebrity for the week is the beautiful talented and petite Nigerian singer and song writer Simisola Bolatito Ogunleye professionally known and referred to as Simi. Born on April 19 1988, Simi started her career as a gospel singer. She released her debut studio album in 2008 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 and further brought her to mainstream recognition.
Simi is currently signed to X3M Music under which she released her second studio album ‘’Simisola’’. Simi is a graduate of Covenant University where she studied Mass Communication. Simi has a subtle voice which usually lingers in the head of listeners long after the sound has ended. Her very tiny but clear voice is so easy to distinguish unlike Beyonce and some other singers, whose soft singing voice is actually deeper when they talk. Simi’s singing voice is the same as her talking voice. Her child-like textured voice makes her even more adorable and interesting to have a conversation with.
Simi was decorated a few days ago at the US Consulate, by the US Consul General, as one of the Human Rights Ambassadors from Nigeria, in conjunction with CRALI. She has been nominated for 17 awards, and won 8.
