Nigerian singer, Simisola Ogunleye, also known as Simi, has become the first female artiste to reach 100 million streams on Boomplay.

Boomplay, one of Nigeria’s leading music streaming platforms, announced this on their social media platforms on Saturday to celebrate the monumental achievement.

Tosin Sorinola, Boomplay’s spokesperson, said the multiple award-winning singer’s fifth solo project, ‘To Be Honest (TBH)’, gave her the landmark achievement.

This has made Simi join the list of Nigerian artistes such as Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy, Fireboy DML, Omah Lay, and Joeboy who had previously gained 100 million streams on Boomplay.

The 34-year-old Ojuelegba-born singer broke into the mainstream with her single ‘Tiff’ in 2014 and had established herself as a super talented songwriter and singer.

Simi had earlier set a record as the first African female artist to reach 100 million streams on Audiomack.
