Simi Announces 5th Album ‘Lost and Found’

Simi, a Nigerian singer and songwriter, will release her fifth album, ‘Lost and Found’ on July 5.

The ‘All I Want’ hitmaker introduced the body of work via Instagram post on Tuesday.

When she shared the album cover, she characterized it as “a symbol of finding parts of myself again”.

Simi also stated that the new endeavor will allow her to reconnect with her “passion for music, melodies, and love stories”.

“For most of my life, I have enjoyed the privilege of knowing myself deeply, unwaveringly and truly. In more recent years, I have endured the discomfort of losing myself,” she wrote.

“Sometimes to make room for something else that I needed to be – other times, because I could not, for the life of me, find my way. I felt like a stranger to myself. This version of me has been the hardest one to look at in the mirror.

“Making this album is a symbol of finding parts of myself again and I hoped I hadn’t lost permanently. I don’t believe that we ever stop finding ourselves. If you’re willing to look there’s is always more. This is tribute to the things we continue to find and rediscover.

“When I sing, I do it first for me then for you. In this order, because I can’t give what I do not have. ‘Lost and Found’ is about me reclaiming my chemistry with music, melody and love stories.

“I hope you feel it too when you listen. I hope you enjoy it, regardless of the journey that brought it to you. Experience it, knowing that nobody bring you what I can, what I have, what I will. Lost and Found, the album, out July 5th 2024.”

Simi began her career as a gospel singer. She rose to notoriety in 2014 after releasing the song ‘Tiff’, which was nominated for The Headies 2015.

She acquired a record deal with X3M Music in 2014, but departed the company in 2019 after her contract expired.

The singer created her own record label, Studio Brat. She has released several popular singles, including ‘Duduke’.

Simi is married to Adekunle Gold, a singer. The union is blessed with a child.
