Who is Simmy?
Simmy Also known as Simphiwe Nhlangulela is a South African songwriter and composer. She fuses neo-soul and neo-folk in her style. She’s currently signed under Sun El musician’s label, El World Music. She broke into the industry with Sun El Musician’s hit single Sonini and followed up with her own smash single, Ubala. Simmy’s first album, Tugela Fairy, has been a big success.
Simmy started writing music in primary school and composed the songs with
her friends who were also her fellow school choir mates at the time, Simmy couldn’t have come on the scene at a better time. As a new generation takes the reins, African roots music is needed more than ever to remind us of the troubled but at the same time colorful & nostalgic pathways of our own history. Her hard-hitting songs touch on modern issues and more personal narratives speaking to life and love in the digital age.
Her rise to Fame
Having grown up in a musical household, her songs on her Album
“TugelaFairy” are inspired by the legendary sounds of Dolly Parton, Platform
One, Brenda Fassie, Soul Brothers and Izingane zo-Ma to name a few. Her
sound is fueled by her rich low beautiful vocals & influential instrumentation.
“Being born & raised in e-Msinga but at the same time witnessing various
street cultures via TV, radio and urban neighboring areas has shaped the way I
approach my music, and has nurtured me as a person as well as my craft. I’ve
discovered things I would never have if I hadn’t had any of these experiences.
It has been a journey both outwards and inwards.” the young songstress adds.
