Simi, the Nigerian singer, is set to release a new song aimed at celebrating strong women — days after she inspired the #NobodyLikeWoman challenge.
The 33-year-old had recently started the trend aimed at encouraging women to open up on societal issues affecting them.
The hashtag had garnered widespread reception among several prominent celebrities including Tonto Dikeh, Iyabo Ojo, Temi Otedola, and Khafi Kareem.
In an Instagram post, Simi said the song titled ‘Woman’ will be released on Thursday by midnight.
The ‘Duduke’ crooner commended those who have supported the challenge since it was initiated.
She also expressed optimism that the challenge would chart a new course in the way women are being treated in the society.

Simi added that the new song is aimed at celebrating the resilience of women that have been able to defy the odds.
“In less than 12 hours, by the grace of God, my single ‘Woman’ will be with you. I’m grateful for every Woman that is standing in the gap for all of us. Your vulnerability is courage,” she wrote.
“I hope that, going forward, we are mindful of the words we say and the seeds that we plant in the lives of people. I also hope that we learn to support and protect women that are not able to do so for themselves.
“Now we celebrate women! See you at Midnight… #NobodyLikeWoman. The reason many, many women are so strong today is that they’ve had to defy the things that were designed to make them weak. Stereotypes. Shame. Fear. Pain. Abuse.
“I respect the strength and courage it has taken many women in these past few days to be vulnerable enough to confront the things that people have said to them to poke at their insecurities and to demean them.
“Many of you have defied the status quo and changed the narrative. You’re brave. You are strong. You are woman. And there’s Nobody Like You.”
