When i first heard her voice, i knew she was sent to melt our hearts with her soft love stories. She started her career as a gospel singer, releasing her debut studio album in 2008, titled Ogaju.
But somewhere,somehow decided that telling us love stories was better than pouring worship rendition to the most high through church songs alone. I guess she realized that it is through the human emotion of love that one can really touch the heart of God.
Now she is pouring those Afro-Pop love songs and we just cant get enough. Simi is a blessing to the Nigerian Music Industry.
3. Tiwa Savage
She is the most famous of all the Nigerian celebrities mentioned on this post. Not because she is the most talented but simply because she is fortunate enough to have the right connect and the right singles that a lot of Nigerians can relate to.
She started with some of the big male names that we have today under the same Record Label and so shared with them success of that period.
Her debut studio album Once Upon a Time was released on 3 July 2013.
