Personally, this is one of my favorite tracks from the singer since her debut. Enjoy!
Jericho ft. Patoranking
Here, the songstress features dancehall legend, Patoranking. This record is a blend of RnB with Dancehall, produced by Vtek. Fans loved this collaboration most especially because it’s a dancehall track.
Likewise, Simi was able to try out a new genre and she blended perfectly well.
Love Don’t Care
This is a 2016 track and so far one of the most amazing! The single was produced by Oscar with additional production (guitar) by Fiokee, mixed and mastered by Simi herself.
This is her first solo single for 2019 after the release of “Promise” with Adekunle Gold.
In the light of enjoying her honeymoon with her husband Adekunle, she released this song.
“Ayo” means (Joy) and it was produced by Legendury Beatz. Listen and Enjoy!
