Nigerian singer and songwriter Simi has released a brand new single entitled Woman. The record was produced by talented beatmaker Vtek.
Studio Brat frontier Simi shares the struggles of a Woman on her latest record. 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.
Recently, Simi started a trend with the hashtag #Nobodylikewoman across her socials. 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. In the song Woman, she expresses her pain as not just a woman but also as a mother.
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.
Produced by talented beatsmith Vtek, Woman will go down as Simi‘s third official single for 2021. It serves as a follow-up to her previous record, Duduke French version featuring Deja.
