Last night, the multi-award winning artiste, along with organisers Flytime Promotions, announced that December 30th has been scheduled for the homecoming concert and it will hold at the Eko Convention Center. He also added that a followup celebration party will hold at the New Afrika Shrine on January 1st.

Having Simi’s voice on any track is like striking gold and many artistes have shown interest in working with her, if not as a singer then as a mixer.
