Simisola Bolatito Kosoko, better known by her stage name Simi, was Spotify’s Equal Africa Music Program ambassador of the month.

The 'Duduke' hit-maker took it on her socials to put it out as she wrote

“It's such an honor to be the Spotify #EQUALAfrica x #EQUALGlobal ambassador for July,”


Then she gave some bars on bars;

"Striving and thriving as a woman in a male-dominated industry has taken years of practice to master,” she said

“You go from being scared of it to being intimidated by it, to being brave enough for it, and then finally, to conquering it,” Simi brought it home.


“I’ve almost always had to do more than my male peers to prove myself. But, because of my love for music, I have been relentless and proud to do this work,” she voiced

“I certainly hope, with all my heart, that the women who continue to come after me find it easier to shine in the way they deserve,” she said.⁣
