It’s been a tough couple of weeks and Simi’s Aimasiko brings all the hope we need to carry on. From the look of things, Simi has focused on releasing visuals to her debut album, Simisola this year. We’re not complaining, though- the videos have been pure fire.
Last month, she put us in out feelings with the video to ‘Complete Me’ and now, we get tempo switch in the video for Simi’s ‘Aimasiko’. On the track, she sings about patience, hope and resilience- something we all need in these times.
In Aimasiko, she samples Chief Ebenezer Obey’s classic of the same name but this won’t be the first time she’ll be sampling from a legendary Nigerian artist. Her smash hit, Joromi, also borrows from Sir Victor Uwaifo’s song of the same title.
The positive video which includes a cameo from Ebenezer Obey features how four people find joy in the midst of their struggles. The keke driver and father who can’t feed his children, the teacher who has no child of her own, a man who can’t find a job and the child sent home for owing school fees.
Now that Simi has dropped the final video from Simisola, it’s only right for us to anticipate her first single for 2018. While we wait impatiently for that goodness, watch the video for Aimasiko below:
