    I’m very happy for Simi’s award, especially the category she was nominated for. It wasnt a Best Female thingy, but Songwriter Of The Year, no female/male distinction. It shows recognition for her talent, more specifically, her songwriting capabilities, a skill rarely appreciated by the industry. Go #AFRIMA, i’m impressed!
