Singer, Simi, celebrates her mother, Jedidah Ogunleye, in the sweetest words, sharing a lovely photo on Instagram of the two of them. She writes:
Happy birthday mummy. You’re my rock, my heart and my truest friend. I love and cherish you with every piece of my heart. Thank you for your youness Sholly Baby ❤️
Simi’s mother is a single mother and raised Simi all on her own. Simi’s mother raised her child in Surulere, and she’s been with the singer throughout her music career. Last year, Jedidah remarried, and it was a joyous moment for the singer and their family at large. Simi’s mother was a widow before she got married again to Feyisayo Akinsola, and the ceremony took place at Daystar Christian Centre. Simi was the chief bridesmaid with senior pastors in attendance, including Sam Adeyemi.

It was with rapturous joy that we celebrated today the joining of our dearly beloved sister, Jedidiah Ogunleye (now Mrs Akinsola), Head of the Ushering Unit of @daystarng for about 20 years now, and her beau, Feyisayo Akinsola. God of wonders at work! Chief Bridesmaid was our dear @symplysimi, daughter of the bride, who was beaming with smiles all through. #miraclesstillhappen #oniseiyanu #mytimewillcome #happymarriedlife
