Simi Explains Why She Took Different Direction With Her Album.

Simi Explains Why She Took Different Direction With Her Album.

Nigerian Afrobeat singer Simisola Bolatito Kosoko, professionally known as Simi, has given details why she completely changed her look and sound.

Simi one of Nigeria’s popular musicians, has hit jams like Joromi, Tiff, Jamb Question, Smile For Me, Duduke, and amongst others.

Simi who recently released a new album (“To Be Honest”(TBH)) to her extensive discography is quite a departure sonically and lyrically for the musician and all her fans.

While having an interview with one of Nigeria’s top radio stations, Beat FM, Simi spoke about her new album, also addressed fans that keep saying to her that they miss the “old Simi”.

She said:

I’ve been working on this album for almost 3 years I think. Because things keep changing and I just kept feeling like it wasn’t quite right. I really applied myself this year and finally, we’re here. (On this album), you’re going to see a more candid version of me.

I’m pretty candid but this is more in-depth. You’re going to find truths about myself and there’s a bit of just vibe in there as well but I’m really spitting on these songs. This is not just sweet Simi, this is true Simi.

While discussing her musical transformation and responding to fans who miss and want the “Old Simi” back.

She explained:

I know there are a lot of my fans that say “Old Simi, Old Simi” but I’ve always believed in the art. Even old Simi was given to you by Simi that wanted to give you old Simi. So I feel like the art should always come from a place where the artiste is comfortable and happy and they’re in their comfort zone.

I understand that people like what they like but this is a different kind of me. It’s actually different from even the different kind of me I’ve done before so I’m just really excited because I love, I adore this album and that’s all that really matters to me. Just to do something that I was obsessed with and I got to that point. Now I’m just ready to let it go.

I really see that a lot, (people saying) “Oh I just miss old Simi so much,” she’s still in there! She just needs a break you know so that the new one can thrive.

There are sounds that I’ve always been able to do but I kind of repressed because I was trying to work on my niche and cover my niche and create my sound, but I want to explore more especially now in an industry that respects pop as well.

Like when you say Afropop, you actually mean Afro-pop so I’m exploring that side of me that I’ve repressed in the past and I’m gonna do it by hook or by crook!
