By Oluwarantimi Oludase 

Popular Nigerian singer, Simisola Bolatito Kosoko, best known as Simi, has taken to social media to announce the release date of her new album and also elaborate on what it entails.

Simi, who is also the wife of a fellow musician, Adekunle Gold, has opened up on the inspiration behind her new album which she titled “lost and found."

She wrote in a lengthy post on the popular microblogging platform X formerly known as Twitter, where she stated that her new album is about her personality, losing herself, not being able to understand who she was.

She described her new album as a true representation of herself, she stated that her main fan is herself before dishing it out to others.

She wrote;
“For most of my life, I have enjoyed the privilege of knowing myself deeply, unwaveringly, truly. In more recent years, I have also endured the discomfort of losing myself. 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 that 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 always more. This is a 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 not 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 can bring you, what I can. What I have. What I will.

Glory to God.
LOST AND FOUND, The Album, Out July 5th, 2024.
Yours Truly,
Soft Queen.”
