Simi- Woman

Simi – Woman
Simi – Woman

For her first single of the year, Simi dropped ‘Woman“, a Fela-inspired track that sheds light on the challenges of being a woman.

Prior to dropping the song, Simi started a #NobodyLikeWoman challenge on Social media.

A trend that has seen women from various spheres of life express both similar and unique social challenges, misogyny, and stereotype shaming they face as women.

According to her, this song is about uplifting women and pointing out the various ways women have been looked down upon in society.

It is a song about uplifting women as much as it is about pointing out the institutional barriers placed on them, Simi points out society’s unequal treatment while demanding a more equitable system.

Built around a jaunty instrumental and accessorized by blustery horns, “Woman” leans into the defiant ethos of afrobeat to reclaim the narrative for women and turns Simi’s long-held socio-political beliefs on equality into a sonic thesis for women’s liberation.

The song samples elements of Fela’s popular song, “Water No Get Enemy” while maintaining a contemporary feel. The music video is currently at 2.8 Million views.
