'Duduke' is Simi's first official single of the year.
Nigerian artist Simi is back with her first official solo track of the year titled "Duduke". The track drops just after her recent collaboration with Ladipoe where the duo released the track "Know You", a soothing and light head-nodder about loving someone you might not know that well. "Duduke" is the latest track to be released under Simi's own record label, Studio Brat.
<p>"Duduke" is a classic mid-tempo Afrobeats number with just enough bounce to get you onto the dancefloor. Produced by the talented <strong>Oscar</strong>, the mellow track is essentially an onomatopoeic play on the sound the artist's heart makes when she thinks about her love interest. Both the stringed instrumentals and varied drums make for an undeniably infectious rhythm—a no-doubt signature Simi track. </p><p>Last year saw Simi making some serious moves. She officially parted ways with her record label, X3M, following the release of her third studio album titled <em>Omo Charlie Champagne, Vol. 1. </em>Both Simi and the record label made the seemingly amicable decision to not renew her contract and the Nigerian singer-songwriter went on to establish her own imprint, Studio Brat, that same year. </p><p><div class="preroll-video"></div><ora-player></ora-player></p><p><a href="https://www.okayafrica.com/simi-and-adekunle-gold-married-music-video-promise/" target="_blank">Simi also tied the knot with fellow artist <strong>Adekunle Gold</strong> last year.</a> Although the duo got married in a private ceremony, they did however give fans a sneak peak into their love story in the music video for "Promise". </p><p>Listen to "Duduke" on <strong>Apple Music</strong>:</p><div class="rm-embed embed-media"><iframe allow="autoplay *; encrypted-media *;" frameborder="0" height="450" sandbox="allow-forms allow-popups allow-same-origin allow-scripts allow-storage-access-by-user-activation allow-top-navigation-by-user-activation" src="https://embed.music.apple.com/us/album/duduke-single/1503512315" style="width:100%;max-width:660px;overflow:hidden;background:transparent;"></iframe></div><p>Listen to "Duduke" on <strong>Spotify</strong>:</p> <iframe src="https://embed.spotify.com/?uri=spotify:album:0GxxbvuvH78qHtiAWz7P4R" id="55283" frameborder="0" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="e3b4785c58898eaf65ea4d61a492f0a0" expand="1" height="480" width="100%"></iframe> <p><br></p>
