Simi said working on ‘Lost and Found’ was an eye-opening journey for her as the melodies and sound embodies the essence of her original self which fans will hear.

She said; “Making this album was an eye-opening journey for me. I love the melodies and sound. When you hear it, you will hear Simi.

“Around 2022, after I dropped TBH (last album), I started working on an Rnb album, but when I was done, it did not feel right anymore so, I started from scratch. But, I kept one or two songs. My struggle was while I was making that album, I did not feel sure of myself.

“That is not usual for me, because even if something is not going as planned, there is an inner peace I often have, as long as I have put in my best. I just didn’t feel like myself. But, making ‘Lost and Found’ brought me back to that place where it was more about the melodies I wanted to make, and not fit into what afrobeats demanded from me. I did it for my fans.

“None of the features were by accident. The song I did with Ladipoe is a sequel to the first song we sang together. For Ebenezer Obey, I had always wanted to work with him, and I chased it. He treats me like his daughter, so it was easy to work with him.”

Artistes she featured are namely; Falz, Tiwa, Lojay, Ladipoe, Bella Shmurda, Asa and veteran musician, Ebenezer Obey.
