- Simi finally clarifies speculations about her previous relationship with rapper, Falz.
- The mother of one noted that their ‘chemistry’ was purely professional without any form of romance.
Famous songstress, Simisola Kosoko, better known as Simi has addressed speculations surrounding her previous relationship with rapper, Falz The Bahd Guy, clarifying that they were never romantically involved.
She emphasized that their connection was purely professional, and any rumour suggesting otherwise was spread by fans who misinterpreted their musical chemistry.
During an interview on MTV Base Africa’s program, Official Naija Top 10, Simi shared insights into their collaboration journey.
Initially, they worked together on the song “JAMB Question Remix,” and the positive response from fans led them to collaborate on “Soldier.” Their musical synergy further fueled rumours of a romantic relationship, but Simi revealed that they never intended to convey such a message.
Acknowledging the strong chemistry between them, they decided to embrace it strategically. This led to the creation of the album “Chemistry,” with the name and concept provided by fans who perceived their connection as something more than just a musical partnership.
In her words:
“He [Falz] did a verse on my song, ‘JAMB Question Remix’. And I was like, ‘Ah! Me and this guy, there is a vibe there.’ So, we did ‘Soldier’, and everybody was like, the chemistry is so amazing.
“We never saw that. People bought what we were not selling. And we were like, okay, this is a strategy. So, we did ‘Chemistry’ the album. People gave us the name and the idea. We never actually came and say, oh, we are dating.”
In a related development, Simi recently shed light on why she decided to transition from gospel music to secular music.
The talented artist disclosed that churches used to pay her a meagre sum of N5,000 to N10,000 for her performances.
She claimed that N70,000 was the most she had ever been paid.
“I actually used to go to a lot of churches to perform. They will pay me like N5k, N10k. Do you know the highest amount of money I actually collected when I was doing gospel [music]? N70,000. And I felt like I had arrived. I still paid a 10 per cent tithe from the money.”
