Simi – Balance ft. Adekunle Gold
Multifaceted Nigerian singer, Simi has released her long-awaited new album titled ‘Tbh,’ an acronym that literally translates to ‘To Be Honest.’
Housed under the album is ‘Balance,’ the fifth track and it features her spouse, Nigerian singer-songwriter Adekunle Gold.
She went on to explain more about the song’s concept:
“This is a feature with Adekunle, and his verse is on point, as is mine. One of the reasons why I like ‘Balance’ is that it’s a song about everything—not about anything specific, but it’s still saying so much. It’s talking about how life is so unpredictable. Sometimes the things you expect are not what you get, and sometimes you get something more than you expect. Nobody can really predict, so basically, just balance yourself.”
Nigerian singer-songwriter and producer Simi, has come a long way in the half-decade since “Jamb Question” initially caught the public’s attention.

Simisola’s 2017 album mixed pop bombast with technical prowess, 2019’s Omo Charlie Champagne, Vol. 1 was a moving reflection on her life’s changing terrain, and experimental albums like 2020’s RESTLESS II polished her creative credentials.
She contemplates love, appreciation, and betrayal with a compilation of edgy songs that traverse the range of emotions on Tbh (To Be Honest), a body of work that took three years to complete.
Simi embraces vivid expressionism on this album, cheerfully calling out detractors (“No Joy”), reliving her roots (“Story Story”), and exploring the meaning of life alongside her spouse Adekunle Gold (“Balance”).
