Simi Thanks Ebenezer Obey for Collaborating with Her

In a recent post, Simi appreciated veteran musician, Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey, for working with her on her latest album, “Lost and Found“. The artist featured Chief Obey on the track “Jowo”, which samples Obey’s classic hit “Olomi Gbo Temi”. Other artists featured on the album include Bella Shmurda, Lojay, Falz, Asa, Tiwa Savage, and Ladipoe.

While speaking about the collaboration, Simi stated, “I’ve said it many times that I didn’t grow up in a musical household. However, I do have memories of my parents playing records of Legends like Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey, King Sunny Ade, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, KWAM 1 etc. Growing up, I found my own personal love for their sounds and songs. I fell in love with highlife music, especially. Nobody makes music like them anymore. It was my desire to get chief Commander Ebenezer Obey’s voice on a record with me. I didn’t just want to sample his song again, and he has taken me as his daughter and I’m so thankful for this. God bless you sir”. 

Her post has attracted comments from several social media users who commended the artiste for including a unique feature on her latest album.
