Nigerian singer, Simisola Kosoko, popularly known as Simi, has revealed that she has never suffered heartbreak in a relationship.
Simi, who is married to her fellow singer, Adekunle Gold, disclosed this during a recent interview with former Big Brother Naija housemate, Tacha Akide, on Cool FM, Lagos.
She clarified that her latest heartbreak-themed song, “Stranger,” was not inspired by her own experiences but rather served as a support for those who have been “served breakfast.”
The singer shared her intention to explore the perspective of being in a relationship where changes occur, where one finds themselves accepting and adapting to situations they previously would not have.
The mother of one said she aims to provide a voice and understanding for those currently experiencing heartbreak, fostering a sense of empathy and connection through her music.
Simi said, “I don’t think I have ever been heartbroken. I don’t know, that song [‘Stranger’] came to me very easily. I guess, maybe I’m just a champion for people that have taken breakfasts [heartbroken] severally [laughs].
“I’m here for them. I mean, somebody has to be. And I remembered that I was thinking; I like love a lot, I think about love a lot. And I felt like one angle that I probably haven’t explored like that is… You know, like you are in a relationship, they have not given you breakfast yet but you just feel like you’ve changed so much and you are doing things, accepting things or adapting to things that normally you would never would. And then one day, you look at yourself in the mirror, and you are like, I don’t know that person.
“I feel like that was the perspective that would be nice to sing about or write about. That is going on in my feelings as well. And I feel like people would be able to relate with it, especially people that are currently going through a heartbreak.”
