Nigerian music star, Simi has penned down a touching tribute to Steve Babaeko, CEO of X3M music as she quits the record label she has been with for the past five years.

The sonorous singer took to Instagram to shower praises on Babaeko, whom she referred to as a father in a heart-warming tribute posted below:

For the platform
For the support
For the freedom to express
For the trust
For the opportunity to live my dreams
For the growth
For the teamwork
For letting me be a part of the family,

I thank you deeply. I appreciate you endlessly. I love you truly. @x3mmusic has been a beautiful part of my journey and I hope you believe me when I say I will never ever take for granted the blessings you brought me.

An especially intense thank you to my forever boss, mentor @stevebabaeko who has been more than a boss to me. You’ve been there for me even more as a father than as a CEO. And that’s saying a lot. This is bittersweet for me and my heart is heavy. As far as I’m concerned, my win is your win boss, and I hope I’ll always be able to come to u when I need you. More than anything, I’d like that. This is not goodbye. You’re just sending your daughter to do great exploits like you sent me to my husband’s house. Lol.

My heart is counting on your continuous support, prayers and love. Don’t forget me dad, cos I could never forget you. I love you. Cheers

The X3M music label boss responded to Simi with an affirmation that both parties parted ways under good terms and that he is proud of her.

“You know the love is forever strong. Go and make us even prouder than we already are.”

Simi parted ways with X3M Music following the expiration of her five years recording contract.

Simi’s exit from X3M Music was made known in an announcement on May 1 by the record label’s A&R executive, Vincent Nwanze.

It was disclosed in the statement that both parties have determined to not renew the contract. The statement reads,

‘We only sign artists that we love and believe in. We know our taste in music is rather different, but we only sign talents who meet that taste. Fortunately, we have been able to find millions of music lovers here and abroad, who share similar tastes, as is evident in the success of all the artists we have worked with, including Simi who is without any doubt one of the biggest music talents in the country today…’”
