Nigerian singer, Simi, real name Simisola Ogunleye, earlier today announced she has gotten her dream collaboration with Nigerian music legend, Innocent Idibia a.k.a 2face. The duo will come together on Simi’s new ‘Simisola’ deluxe album. 2face will join Simi on the remix of ‘Original Baby’, one of the hit track on the original ‘Simisola’ album released in 2017.
Simi announced the collaboration on her Instagram handle by sharing a snippet of the song with the caption, “Issa legend @official2baba”.
The collaboration comes five years after Simi tweeted about her wish to work with 2 Baba, whose song ‘African Queen’ is regarded as a timeless classic.
In 2015, Simi tweeted @Simplysimi, “One day, very soon, I’ll work wichu. Promise RT @2faceidibia: One love 2 all 2baba pples! I hail o. I say without u there will be no me!”

The version contains 14 original tracks and two remixes; ‘Original Baby’with 2 Baba and ‘Smile for Me remix’ with Lauren.
