Popular songstress Simi is acknowledging her career growth as she celebrates her 2020 hit record, “Duduke” surpassing 20 million views on Youtube.
The song which she described as a gift, dedicated to her then-unborn child, Adejare Kosoko became a household track that millions of people connected to upon hearing.
According to her, the song is her biggest song so far as she ever expected it to become a hit.
In her words: “I had the biggest song of my career, so far, in the craziest year of all our lives.
“God” is the only explanation I will ever accept! I played this song just now as I was breastfeeding my child, and she had dozed off for abt 20 seconds, but she suddenly perks up, raises her head, looks in my eyes, and smiles at me.
She stays that way for a bit and I was confused, so I go “what happened, baby?” My mum says “it’s the song.” My heart skips.
I mean she loves it when we sing to her or play her music, but her reaction was so specific tonight”.
