Award-winning songstress, Simi, has left X3M Music following the expiration of her five years recording contract.
The record label and Simi have mutually agreed not to renew the contract
This was revealed in a statement signed by its A&R executive, Vincent Nwanze, on Wednesday.
The statement reads in part;
“We only sign artistes that we love and believe in.
We know our taste in music is rather different; but we only sign talents
who meet that taste.
“Fortunately, we have been able to find millions of music lovers
here and abroad, who share similar tastes, as is evident in the success
of all the artistes we have worked with, including Simi who is without
any doubt one of the biggest music talents in the country today.”
The Xtreme music songbird no doubt has become a household name since she joined the label in 2014.
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.
X3M Music, part of the X3M Group, was founded in 2008 by Steve
Babaeko, an advertising executive who is a notable music fan and
enthusiast, and internationally acclaimed writer.
