Nigerian songbird and songwriter, Simisola Bolatito Ogunleye, popularly known as Simi has gradually found her feet in the Nigerian music industry. Simi who was a member of her church’s choir when she wrote her first song at age ten is popularly known for songs like “Oga ju”, “ara ile”, ‘Jamb Question’, ‘Love don’t care’, ‘soldier’ etc
While growing up, Simi was a kind of a tomboy because she had three elder brothers and from her mum, she was the only girl and last born.
“So I used to like sneakers, baggy jeans etc. My dad spoilt my brothers and I, but it was fun. When I was nine years, my parents separated and so that was really a tough time for us, because we had to grow up faster. We came through it and we are okay.” She said.
A lot of ladies enjoy taking their baths but Simi has a different view about taking bath, it is very annoying to her. She said about her annoying routine:
“That will be taking my bath. It’s not that I don’t like bathing but I love to multi-task. At times I might be brushing my teeth while also operating my system or reading. But when you get into the bathroom, you just can’t do any other thing.”
