SIMI’s Biography (Age)

Born as Simisola Bolatito Adeola Opeyemi Oreoluwa Ogunleye on April 19, 1988, the Ondo state indigene is the last of four children and the only girl, consequently, she was a tomboy while growing up. Simi was born in Ojuelegba, a suburb of Surulere, Lagos state, Nigeria, and also raised by a single mum following her parents were separated when she was just 9.

She penned her first song at the age of 10 and began singing at the age of 16. As a result of her passion for music, she joined her church’s teenage choir. Probably due to her church background, she began her career in the music industry as a gospel singer, with the release of her debut studio album in 2008 titled Ogaju.

A few years later, however, Simi switched over to singing secular songs and got her major breakthrough in the mainstream music industry in 2014 after she released Tiff under a record label, X3M Music which she was signed to in the same year. The song was nominated in two categories at The Headies 2015.

Since she was signed to X3M Music, Simi has released hits including – Tiff, Jamb Question, Love Don’t Care, Smile For Me and also featured in a number of hit records such as ‘Soldier’, with Falz, ‘No Forget’, with Adekunle Gold, ‘Orire’, with Legendury Beatz and a few others.

In 2016, Simi released an E.P with Falz, titled Chemistry and followed it up in September 2017 with her Sophomore album “Simisola” which was a hit, making it at number 5 on the Billboard World Music charts. The album also debuted at number 1 on both the Apple Music and iTunes chart and held its position for three weeks.

On Feb 10, 2017, Simi was endorsed by one of Nigeria’s telecoms firms, Etisalat, as its ambassador. The songstress is a graduate of Mass communication from Covenant University.

Her Relationship Who’s Simi Dating?

Simi and the Orente Singer, Adekunle Gold, are best of friends. They have posted several pictures of themselves that suggest an intimate relationship. However, both the X3M Music label artist and the YBNL signed artiste are yet to confirm or explain to curious fans what they are doing.

According to Adekunle, Simi is responsible for the arrangement and mixing of Orente and a couple of other songs he would be releasing soon.

6 Facts About The Amazing Singer

Everyone loves Simi, due to a whole lot of fantastic things about her. Interestingly, the petite singer has not been around the music scene for so long but has almost 200,000 likes on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter put together.

Due to the massive love people have for her, we decided to highlight six amazing features about the songbird that would interest you.


1. Her Voice

Unarguably, Simi has the softest voice among the top reigning female singers in Nigeria. Her very tiny but clear voice is so easy to distinguish. Like a trademark, her voice cannot go unrecognized on the radio.

Unlike Beyonce and some other singers, whose soft singing voice is actually deeper when they talk, Simi’s singing voice is the same as her talking voice. Her child-like textured voice makes her even more adorable and interesting to have a conversation with.

Her lyrics are thoughtfully written and the productions usually match her genre and voice. You can double-check these facts with some of her singles like“E No Go Funny,” “Open and Close,” “Are You Ready to Fly?,” “Changing My World” and “I Do” among others.

3. Her Size

They say big things usually come in small packs and that goes for Simi. Her petite stature, height, and the matching voice make her an object to fall in love with. Her age, which is not reflected on her physic, does not really matter, as she looks and sounds like a child – which is very cute for a music star who appeals more to the younger generation.

4. Her Fashion Sense

Simi understands fashion and knows what best suits her size. She loves wearing above-the-knee apparel – gowns, bums, etc.


However, when she rocks jeans trousers, she does it so well and does not forget to accessorize with either a scarf or choker necklace.

5. Laughter

Simi loves to smile and laugh a lot – one you won’t forget in a hurry. Listening to her laughter can be as addictive as doing same to her songs – her laughter can stay imprinted in your subconscious for a while.

6. Her Playful Nature

The talented singer has a playful disposition. People who follow her on social networks can tell from her videos and pictures that she is simple and loves to play and create fun for herself. She is known on Instagram (@symplysimi) for sharing videos of herself either singing or smiling and saying nothing or saying something funny.
