Simi is the cover girl for the latest issue of Accelerate TV’s The Cover magazine. In the issue tagged, ‘The Party Issue’, the singer shows off her stylish side as she struck poses for the camera.
The singer whose fashion sense has been criticized on a number of occasions also opened up on her weirdest fashion moment saying, “I think the outfit that has had the weirdest comments was this absolutely beautiful dress- it’s green and yellow and it was like a halter and then it had this chain thing hanging. But then when I took a picture, it didn’t photograph as nice as the dress was. But I guess maybe I didn’t know at the time and I posted it and then people were like ‘why does this look weird’. The thing is it’s very hard to get to me especially when I know something is not true because I knew how beautiful the dress was. People that were around me they were like ‘what are they talking about? I swear that dress was nice’ I will say that one was the one that got the weirdest comments; people said it looked like I was going for cultural dance.”
Describing her personal style to the magazine Simi said, “I’m very laid back and I can be kind of a tom boy, like a girlish type tom boy. I like sneakers and jeans, crop tops. I like to play dress up sometimes, I think it’s fun. But my general life, I like to be comfortable like wearing shorts, I like shorts.

According to her, “‘Soldier’ actually started out as my song, I wrote the song and he had heard the song even before ‘Jamb Question’ and I was like you know, ‘you can write a verse for this, but let me be honest with you this song is not going to come out for a while because I already have other material I’m trying to put out’. He was like no problem and then when he was working on his album he called me and was like ‘I want to do a song with you’ and I was like ‘Okay’. Actually, I was even fighting and gunning for an Afrobeat song. He was like ‘nahh nahh’ , that soldier song and I said ‘but that’s my song’. So we flipped it and it became his song.”
