EFIWE GISTS: I Was A Tomboy While Growing Up - Singer Simi @symplysimi


Music sensation, Simisola Ogunleye with Simi as stage name, has proven not be a flash in the pan. After crooning the song, Jamb Question, to the delight of her teeming fans, Simi has become very much sought after songstresses around.

The velvet-voiced singer speaks to Lanre Odukoya of New Telegraph about her career, family and love.
Your lyrics mostly appear really deep, do you write all of them?

I write my lyrics myself and for other people. I am not just a singer; I am a songwriter, I mix and master most of my songs myself.

How do you develop lyrics?

It depends on how deep I want to go with a particular song I am putting together. ‘Jamb Question’ is not really a deep song, but people got the message I was communicating.
That is the most important thing. I write my lyrics based on happenings around me and things people shared with me.

Do you decide the songs you make or the label?

I don’t know about other record labels, but I am at liberty to write my song at any time and do whatever I like with it. My label has always been supportive, though there have cases they didn’t do things my way.
Before we released ‘Jamb Question,’ I was going to drop ‘Open and Close,’ but my management team disagreed on that. I felt bad, but it turned out to be a great decision.

To whom do you owe your success?

I have an amazing team; there is really little I can do myself. Though I write my song, mix and master, my management team makes things to work well for me. They make sure at all time that I stand on the right path. I have always been favoured; God loves me so much.

Is humour a signature on your songs?

All of them have a bit of it It is something people now notice in my music, but there are also songs that have no touch of humour. And most of my songs that have humour are normally realistic.

Who is Simi away from the glitz?

I am very straightforward and I like to say things the way I see them.
