How Simi professionally double as a singer and a mixing engineer
The genesis started out as a gospel singer back in 2008 with her debut album Ogaju and here is how Simi professionally doubled her career as a singer and a mixer
A mixing engineer (or simply mix engineer) is responsible for combining (“mixing”) different sonic elements of an auditory piece into a complete rendition (also known as “final mix” or “mixdown”), whether in music, film, or any other content of auditory nature.
The finished piece, recorded or live, must achieve a good balance of properties, such as volume, pan positioning, and other effects while resolving any arising frequency conflicts from various sound sources.
These sound sources can comprise the different musical instruments or vocals in a band or orchestra, dialogue or foley in a film, and more.
After six (6) years she released a single titled’Tiff‘ an addictive song that blew minds and sparks heads, which marked her launch into mainstream prominence and automatically turning a household name.
Also, the single was an absolutely delightful piece that was massively accepted immediately, journeying down the ultimate goal of stardom

Simi‘s critically acclaimed second studio self-titled album Simisola smash records and won significant awards.
Simi’s voice can be termed as one of the remarkable attributes to her career, Sweet and mellifluously; “her voice sounds like heaven flowing down to earth”, “her vocals makes one feel like floating in the air”
On the one hand, the speculating sound gleaming similarities assumed through the vocal addictiveness, Simi‘s voice is very unique and will always trademark the natural vibe.

I disagree with the monotonous sound claim by some least proportion, therefore it is just a critical assertion and when a musician gets complimented they really want to believe it, and if they don’t, they will take it as a great opportunity for them to learn that they could have done better and improved themselves.
Simi to me has been solidifying her spot on the top 10 Nigerian artists conversations, extensively exploring and orchestrating Afro-soul, Afro-pop, Afro R&B.
However, taking a toll on the all-inclusive career package, she is also a sound engineer, ultimately soaked with a musical atmosphere.
Most importantly, she is amazing and inspiring to a wider proportion, many young women look up to her, more especially the fact that surrounds her lifestyle.
