Nigerian music star, Simi, speaks on new song; rules out amapiano


Nigeria’s queen of sweet vocals and catchy melodies, Simi, is back with a new song titled “All I Want” which she describes as a “sticky” song.

She told BBC World Radio that: “It is the kind of song that plays in your head and doesn’t stop even when you want it to. I love that about it.”

‘All I Want’ is the first single from a new album promised later this year, encompassing R&B, highlife and hip hop.

Simi, during her interview, noted that one sound which would not make an appearance was South Africa’s ubiquitous amapiano.

“I like to listen to amapiano – I think it is groovy and everything – but I have tried it and it is not a sound I personally have enjoyed making. So there is no amapiano track on the album… unless something changes!” she said.

Simi has had successful collaborations in recent years with Ladipoe (Know You), and Candy Bleakz (Wale), not to mention Look What You Made Me Do, the latest song with her husband which dropped last year.

“I love making music with him. He is so talented, it was so exciting – especially working on the bridge because it’s such a classic duet,” she said.
