Studiobrat boss lady, Simi finally dishes out her highly anticipated single – “Duduke”.
The long wait is over as Nigeria’s famous Songstress, Simi releases her 2020 debut titled “Duduke“. The talented vocalist linked up with favorite producer, Oscar, and they both created magic once again.
“Duduke” is a mid-tempo pop record blend with the Afro-life vibe. Simi uses to describe the way her heart beats for the love of her life. The Guardian Angel she prays for daily and love whole heartily. “Duduke” is the Yoruba word for heartbeat, and within the context of this song, “Duduke” is used to describe the sounds produced from her heartbeats while she longs for her lover. At the time of its release, It truly felt like a love song but little did we know that Simi’s intentions were way deeper than a regular love song.
Its beautiful visuals made us understand the singer wasn’t referring to her husband, Adekunle Gold but her unborn child. She wrote this as an expectant mother waiting for the birth of her child which is a wonderful one in a lifetime experience so every beat, lyric, and note was perfect. Simi makes those who are yet to understand a mother’s love get a grasp of what it means to love someone you haven’t even seen yet.
Lyrics like “I can not wait to see you, you are the treasure I’ve been waiting for ” tells you a mother’s love is the strongest, most unconditional, and purest love of all. Thanks to Oscar who made us realize that the Simi of “Jamb Question” and is still very much alive. The instrumental was fantastic, but Simi’s amazing and sonorous vocals did a lot of justice to this record. She did beautifully with amazing melodies, nice vocal dexterity, and of course withy beautifully composed lyrics. The entire track is top-notch and perfect.
