Popular Nigerian Singer, Simisola Ogunleye, popularly known by her stage name as Simi is set to quit her record label, X3M music.
Naija News understands that the female singer will be cutting the ties with the Lagos-based record label as the contract between both parties expires.
X3M Music made the intentions known in a statement on Wednesday, May 1.
The record label in the statement obtained by Naija News said that it has agreed with Simi not to renew the contract.
Recall that Simi recently released her last album under the label, dubbed as ‘Omo Charlie Champagne,’ which featured some popular artists in the industry.

“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 artists we have worked with, including Simi who is without any doubt one of the biggest music talents in the country today…”
“The gifted singer emerged one of the most remarkable musical talents of her generation; combining a peerless skill for writing and arranging, with a vocal prowess like none before her.”
“That special voice, an unassuming look, and writing talent were what attracted her to X3M Music when she was signed in 2014,” the statement added.
