The long-awaited major move expected of the “Joromi” crooner has been made and it’s a checkmate. In May, the songwriter and artiste Simisola Ogunleye widely known as Simi announced her own record company named “Studio Brat”. This move comes shortly after the songbird announced that her two-album deal with X3M Music has expired and won’t be rene
This was revealed in a statement released to her fans.
It reads, “The norm is to do a formal and proper press release, with big, impersonal words – but this is me and you.
We began with true laughs, constructive criticism, silly jokes and personal moments. We’re gonna keep it that way.
“All I’ve ever wanted was to live my dreams – to do it on my terms, but for you. Each step I’ve taken has brought me here. This is only the beginning of the best part of my journey. I hope that you stand with me, fight with me, love with me and grow with me.
“My team and I have continuously put our hearts into it. Like Michael Jackson said, “Don’t stop till you get enough…” We never want to let you down. Proof: I’m using a Michael Jackson quote.
“So, with a heart full of excitement, I introduce Studio Brat to you. It’s Ours. Let’s do what we do!”
Simi started her professional musical career in 2008 following the release of her debut studio album – Ogaju. Thereon, she gained prominence in 2014 after releasing “Tiff”, a song that was nominated for Best Alternative Song at The Headies 2015.
Her exit from X3M Music comes after the release of her third album, Omo Charlie Champagne, which the Vol. 1 was released to coincide with her thirty-first birthday on April 19, 2019.
The record company, Studio Brat will take over her affairs from now.
