Award-winning songstress, Simi, has left X3M Music following the expiration of her five years recording contract.
The record label and Simi have mutually agreed not to renew the contract
This was revealed in a statement signed by its A&R executive, Vincent Nwanze, on Wednesday.
The statement reads in part;
“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.”
The Xtreme music songbird no doubt has become a household name since she joined the label in 2014.
Her first album for X3M, Simisola, was released to local and international acclaim in September 2017 and named album of the year in 2018 by The Headies Awards.
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.
Before joining X3M Music, Simi released her debut album titled Ogaju in 2008.
The 31-year-old who is married to her colleague, Adekunle Gold, released her final album for X3M, Omo Charlie Champagne, on April 19, 2019.
