TOP 10 MOST POPULAR SIMI SONGS

Methodology: How This Music Chart Works

Process Summary: The 10 songs were ranked using chart factors include like TV and radio airplay, record sales (both digital and physical), streaming platforms, song and video downloads from top African entertainment sites, as well as YouTube views.

Simi has collaborated with numerous artist from all across the African continent, so in order to focus on the artist, the team tired to limit the number of features and collaborations included.

Jericho

In June 2019, Simi added the title, ‘record label boss’ to her name with the launch of her own label, Studio Brat.  following the expiration of her contract with X3m Music. Continuing the trend of new endeavors, she launched the new label with ‘Jericho’ a silky smooth blend of dance-hall and RnB.

So what do you do when you’re working on a part-RnB, part dance-hall record that’s somewhat different from your usual sound? Well you get the Nigerian dance-hall king himself Patoranking on the phone, that’s what!

 

Doyin

After the success of their 2018 collaboration ’Surrender,’ Mr Eazi and Simi  teamed up once again this time for a Killertunes-produced love song. Named after the Yoruba slang for a sweet girl ‘Doyin’. The two playfully interchange lyrics describing a couple complaining about mixed signals, all the while insisting the other should prove their love.

 

Duduke 

Duduke is a love song dedicated to someone so special your heart beats for them alone, just like the sound of a drum.
We’ve already gone over several love songs from Simi, but this one is very different. Released on her 31st birthday, Simi announced via the music video, she and her husband “Adekunle Gold” were expecting their first child together and ‘Duduke’ was her love letter to her baby.

The song was a massive hit, and quickly inspired the fun #Duduke social media challenge, which saw women (and some creative men) serenade their babies while lovingly cradling their bumps …. or pillow stuffed t-shirts.

 

Soldier

Aha, now we can finally talk about Falz, whom some fans (not me, promise) swore Simi was dating. So some brief backstory, now let’s say fans are speculating you’re dating a fellow Nigerian musician, but you’re not dating him and instead you are actually dating another equally talented musician (see previous story), what do you do to put the rumors to rest?

Well if you’re Simi you have fun with it and do some slight trolling! First collaborating with the guy everyone thinks you’re dating but are not actually dating for several incredible love songs (Chemistry, Want to, Foreign, etc) all while playing each other’s love interests so many times that the rumor mongers actually end up confused about whether they are right or wrong about you guys.

Okay, I have to stop because I am getting confused too. All that being said the trolling was masterfully done and delivered incredible songs in the process.

For the music video, the two continue the will they – won’t they banter. And when you are Falz and Simi, you don’t just drop a random music video for a song like soldier. Nope, you give us a short musical film shot by the one and only Clarence Peters.

 

Joromi

For the lead single of her debut album, Simisola, Simi channels her inner classic high-life musician, Sir Uwaifo for inspiration, sampling his hit 1979 song of the same name. On the award winning track, Simi shows off her bold side by shooting her shot. Unfortunately, she leaves the situation frustrated as the poor guy just doesn’t seem to get the hint.

Fun Fact: It won Best Recording at the 2017 Headies.

 

Ayo

Back to happier things. Now ‘ayo’ means ‘joy’ in Yoruba.The song was produced by Legendary Beatz and released shortly after ‘Promise’ on which she and Adekunle Gold chronicled their love story and private wedding ceremony. Need I say more? Ok, if you insist. On it she talks about enjoying God’s blessings and says she has a lot of money like Mike Adenuga. You do know who he is, right?

 

Smile for Me

Another love song lyrics such as “be good to me even if you bad o” and “lie to me, if the truth will break my heart,” Simi makes it clear on ‘Smile for Me’ that she is willing to obvious red flags in the relationship her lover.
It won Best RnB Single at the 2017 Headies.

 

Promise

Here’s the thing: when you are Simi, there’s expectedly a lot of interest in your personal life and people speculate about who you might be dating.
Some say you’re dating Falz (see number 4, solider) while others say Adekunle Gold, but you don’t confirm anything.
Here’s what you do instead, after successfully trolling the public for a few months … secretly marry the one you are actually dating (congratulations Adekunle), collaborate on a song with him and since fans are so hungry for news about your private life, you include little snippets of the incredibly romantic beach wedding in the video for the song. Everyone goes home happy!

 

JAMB Question

Girls, if you have ever had a guy try to ask you out but instead of going straight to the point he starts asking the silliest questions. Then please say a prayer for Simi because she spoke our minds on this song.
For the remix, the Lagos-born singer recruited her regular collaborator, Falz.

 

Lovin

Initially realized in 2018 on ‘Lovin’ Simi is love-struck and it clearly shows. Produced by her frequent collaborator Oscar, Simi handles the mixing herself.
