Award-winning Nigerian super talented artist; Simi on April 19, 2019 (her birthday), officially released her third studio album titled; OMO CHARLIE CHAMPAGNE (Vol. 1). The album is a 13-tracker body of work which features the likes of Patoranking (Track 3), Adekunle Gold (Track 4), Maleek Berry (Track 5), and Falz (Track 9).
Prior to the official release of the album, the singer had already dropped 3 singles; I Dun Care, Lovin, and Ayo, to gear up her fans. The genres which make up the 13-tracker album are sentimental Ballad, Afropop, Folk, Afro-fusion, Afro-soul, and EDM/Moombahton.
Simi dedicated the album to her late father, Engr. Charles Oladele Ogunleye who died in 2014. ‘Charlie’ is a popular short form for ‘Charles,’ and most people named ‘Charlie‘ in Nigeria get jokingly referred to as ‘Charlie Champagne.’ Therefore, ‘Omo Charlie Champagne,’ means ‘Daughter of Charlie Champagne,’ a direct reference to her father which could simply mean, ‘My father’s daughter.’
The production credits goes to the three music producers that make up the album; Oscar, Vtek, Legendury Beatz, and Sess The Problem kid. Guitars by Fiokee and OC Omofuma.
