Simisola Bolatito Ogunleye, better known as Simi, has revealed that she will release an album titled "To Be Honest" in 2022.
Following the success of her previous album, 'Omo Charlie Champagne, Vol. 1', which was released in 2019, this would be her fifth studio album.
Her EP 'Restless II,' which was released in 2020, is her most recent body of work. People are quite pleased about the return of the female artist to the spotlight.
The singer shared the news on her social media platform with the hand written message that read:
I've been trying to tell you a story for close to three years, I've been desperate to tell you something. Something to help me show you the thoughts I'm thinking... the feelings I'm feeling. I started to start, but then I got pregnant and said "not yet."
Then my child was in my arms. In the arms of a woman whose love was so great, that it swallowed her whole and left her unsteady. It confused me, but for some reason, for a season, I became less sure - of the stories I wanted to tell. Of the way I wanted to tell them. I craved clarity. So again, I said "not yet."
Moths passed, and I believed the moment had come. i was certain it was the time and that the stars had finally alligned. "Eureka," I thought.
But when I listened, alone and in the dark I didn't feel right. It felt too much like my story was tainted by too many second and third party opinions. Opinions and ideas I usually cherish and lean on - but not for this story. Just me, so again, I said "not yet."
I paused my impatience, listened to only the voices in my head, trusted in only the instincts I was born with. Now, when I listen in the dark, or in all the places the sun likes to shine, alone or with everybody else , it feels right. Eureka!
On the 3rd of June I will share this story with you finally. #ToBeHonest.
