X3M Music has announced the departure of one of its recording artistes Simisola Ogunleye simply known as ‘Simi’ following the expiration of her recording contract.
The label confirmed in a statement signed by A&R executive Vincent Nwanze, that both parties have determined to not renew the contract.
Simi is one of Nigerian’s star icons to reckon with. She displays commendable music talents mixed with Afro sounds and spiced with excellent story telling.
‘Omo Charlie Champagne,’ her final album for X3M music was released on April 19, 2019. X3M music is reputed to have a bias for original, alt music; especially in an industry dominated by pop.
X3M Music’s management said: ‘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…’
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.
