Nigerian female songwriter hit over 100 million streams on Audiomack

Female musician, songwriter and one of Nigeria’s most prominent musical exponents, Simisola Bolatito Kosoko, popularly known as Simi, has been honoured as the first African female artist to hit over 100 million streams on Audiomack – a popular music streaming platform.

This remarkable feat is a testament to Simi’s unique blend of R&B and Afro-pop fusion, which has steadily helped her in strategically gaining recognition even internationally.

In 2021, Wizkid became the first African artiste (Male) to reach 300 million streams for one album ‘Made in Lagos.’

Simi and some other top Nigerian female hip hop acts have, in recent years, been in the vanguard of female artistes that are reshaping the content of Nigerian music.

Known for her decency, the 33-year-old singer started her career as a gospel singer, releasing her debut studio album in 2008, titled ‘Ogaju’, and since then she has been setting the pace.

Simi was born in Ojuelegba, a suburb of Surulere, Lagos State. She is an alumnus of Covenant University, where she studied Mass Communication.

In 2019, she married her colleague Adekunle Kosoko, popularly known as Adekunle Gold, and gave birth to her daughter Adejare in 2020.
