Nigerian songstress, Simisola Kosoko, known by her stage name, Simi, says she has never charged any artiste for a feature.
The mother-of-one made this known during an interview with media personality, Taymesan on an episode of the Tea With Tay podcast.
According to the ‘Duduke’ hit maker, she’s selective of the kind of songs she features in and will only feature in the song if she really likes it.
Simi said; “Till this moment, I have never charged for a feature. For me to do a feature I have to really like it. I have to like the song.
If I like the song, give me half a day, I am done. If I don’t like the song I will most likely say no. It’s not personal. I can take a ‘No. Things are not personal, it’s just what it is.”
