How Simi and I Actually Met – Falz Finally Reveals

Nigerian singers Simi and Falz at some point around 2016/2017 almost felt like a package deal because of how closely together both artistes were working. They collaborated on each other’s music and jointly released a project called “Chemistry” that went on to do amazing for their individual careers. Because of how close they are, people have often wondered how the two actually got to meet each other. Some people believe that they’d known themselves from childhood, others thought they were friends before joining the industry.

Well, during a new interview with Rwanda’s Beats and Sounds, Falz opened up about the actual genesis of he and Simi’s relationship. Here is what he said about how the two got close and eventually started working together.

During the interview, Falz was asked “You’ve collaborated with so many people: Davido, Burna Boy, Olamide, Simi, how did the collaborations shape your musical journey?” he said:

Those collabos play a huge huge part. I love love collaborations. Some of my biggest songs are collaborations and I would never deny that. It’s just simple, when you take somebody’s style and mix it with another person’s style, what you get is magic. It’s almost always magic. So I love collaborations. I would never stop doing collaborations. For the longest time, I think that was 2016, myself and Simi were working a lot together and we had the collaborative project called Chemistry. That was huge, that was everywhere. I’ve worked on several several collaborations. There is “Bahd, Baddo, Baddest” with Davido and Olamide, “Something Light” with Ycee, there’s so many collaborations I’ve worked on man. There’s quite a lot.

“You talked about working with Simi on Chemistry. Did you grow up together or did you guys meet in the industry?”

We met in the industry oh. I swear. I heard her music. I think the first song I heard was a song called “Jamb Question”. I just reached out to her because as soon as I heard that song, it inspired something and I started writing to it and I wrote a verse straight away, immediately (laughs). So I reached out to her like yo, I have a verse for this song. She was like what? Well come on then, let’s do a remix. So we did a remix to Jamb Question and then we did the video. So from there, the working relationship was just so seamless. The chemistry was smooth, it was beautiful. There was no other name to call the album except from “Chemistry”
