Nigerian star Simi has dropped her 13-song sophomore album, Omo Charlie Champagne Vol. 1.

The highly-anticipated record sees Simi showcasing her vocal skills and penchant for writing the type of sweet and addictive melodies that have made her a star.

Omo Charlie Champagne Vol. 1 features collaborations with fellow Nigerian artists Patoranking, Maleek Berry, Falz, and her husband Adekunle Gold.

"When I was compiling this album, I knew I wanted to dedicate it to my daddy, Engr. Charles Oladele Ogunleye - who passed in 2014," Simi wrote on her Instagram. "I'm blessed to have come this far. I'm blessed that it was possible for me. I do not take this for granted."


"I couldn't possibly be more thankful for this journey. To have amazing people like you supporting me everyday is absolute Magic! I love you... I'm thankful to all the amazing people that made this possible - Steve Babaeko, my forever mentor. My team Oscar Heman-Ackah, Vincent, Iyanuoluwa, Wale Bello, my amazing family and friends, the incredible #SimiArmy! I love you so much. Thank you for making my world go round."
