Simi bids X3M Music emotional goodbye


Singer-songwriter, Simi, has officially said goodbye to X3M Music after her contract with the record label expired.

The Lagos based outfit had on Wednesday confirmed that the 31-year-old was leaving.

“I thank you deeply. I appreciate you endlessly. I love you truly,” the singer wrote to the label in an Instagram post on Thursday.

She added that the company “has been a beautiful part of my journey and I hope you believe me when I say I will never ever take for granted the blessings you brought me.”

X3M Music, part of the X3M Group, was founded in 2008 by Steve Babaeko, an advertising executive and showbiz investor.

Simi, who is married to fellow singer, Adekunle Gold, fondly calls Babaeko dad.

“This is not goodbye. You’re just sending your daughter to do great exploits like you sent me to my husband’s house,” she said.

Simi joined X3M Music in 2014. She immediately warmed hearts with the hit single ‘Tiff’ which earned her a Headies nomination.

Her first album for X3M, Simisola, was released to local and international acclaim in September 2017, and named album of the year in 2018 by The Headies Awards.

She released her final album for X3M, Omo Charlie Champagne, on April 19, 2019.

Before joining X3M Music, Simi released her debut album titled Ogaju in 2008.
