Simi further revealed that they decided to embrace the speculation as a strategic move to collaborate on more music together.
She said, “He [Falz] did a verse on my song, ‘JAMB Question Remix’. And I was like, ‘Ah! Me and this guy, there is a vibe there.’ So, we did ‘Soldier’, and everybody was like, the chemistry is so amazing.
“We never saw that. People bought what we were not selling. And we were like, okay, this is a strategy.
So, we did ‘Chemistry’ the album. People gave us the name and the idea. We never actually came and say, oh, we are dating”
