Simisola Ogunleye, a singer better known as Simi, has signed a partnership deal with Platoon, a UK-based record label owned by Apple Music.

Simi, 32, broke the news via her Twitter page on Monday.

She also shared a video spotlight of herself in the caption of which she announced the coming of her next studio project titled ‘Restless’ EP.

“I’m a singer and songwriter. I’ve been singing for a decade now. The influences I had in music especially when I was young were Lauryn Hill and Asa as well. I love Adele,” she said.

Platoon Music, which was acquired by Apple in 2018, works with artistes to produce, distribute, and sell their content while using analytics to figure out the target market for their style of music.

 

The development comes months after Florence Otedola, a disk jockey better known as DJ Cuppy, also signed with Platoon Music before the release of ‘Original Copy’, her debut EP.

Denzyl Feigelson, CEO of Platoon Records, had earlier revealed his intentions to help artistes get through the coronavirus pandemic.

While welcoming Simi to the brand, Feigelson can be heard saying in the video: “We’re are really looking forward to seeing your music spread out to the entire globe, which it should.”
