X3M Music Announces Simi's Departure Following Expiration Of Her Recording Contract

X3M Music is today announcing the departure of one of its recording artistes Simisola Ogunleye following the expiration of her recording contract.

The Lagos-based label confirms, in a statement signed by A&R executive Vincent Nwanze, that both parties have determined to not renew the contract.

In a career that is still unfolding, Simi has emerged one of the most remarkable music talents of her generation; combining a peerless skill for writing and arranging, with a vocal prowess like none before her.

That special voice, an unassuming look, and writing talent are what attracted her to X3M when she was signed in 2014. She immediately warmed hearts with the hit single ‘Tiff’ which earned her a Headies nomination. Her debut album for X3M (her career second) was released to local and international acclaim in September 2017, and named album of the year in 2018, by The Headies Awards.

Her final album for X3M music ‘Omo Charlie Champagne’ 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.


  1. Na person comot record label wey we no hear noise ooo...but if na other people court and social media go dey hear am by now.

  2. This right here,sounded like an obituary announcement. The way my heart skipped eh. Hmm.

  3. See clean, dignified, no rancor exit. Other artists please take note.

  4. Its about time!!! Simi has very good music and i don't believe her label is doing enough to push her as an artiste. Same as praiz who is also signed to the same label.

  5. Hope this is not the last we hear of you in the music scene dear Simi.

  6. Waoh congrats to simi. Aya Adekunle Gold

  7. Another good one. It seems they (artistes and RLs) are getting there small small. No be every time, tear each other down because of exit or separation. I believe Simi and her husband go soon float their own record label soon. They have good heads on their shoulders. All the best Simi. Soar higher!

  8. This is how to do it. I did not expect less from Simi and Oga Steve sha.
    Well done to both.
