Boomplay, which is one of Nigeria’s leading music streaming platforms made the announcement across their social media platforms on Saturday to celebrate the monumental achievement.

Sorinola said the multiple award-winning singer’s fifth solo project ‘To Be Honest (TBH)’, gave her the landmark achievement.

This has made Simi to join the list of Nigerian artists such as Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy, Fireboy DML, Omah Lay, and Joeboy who had previously gained 100 million streams on Boomplay.

The 34 year-old Ojuelegba born singer and actress broke into the mainstream with her single ‘Tiff’ in 2014 and had  established herself as a super talented songwriter and singer.
