In his words;
“I didn’t reject Simi. I did a Twitter contest for ‘Journey of A Thousand Miles’ ― D’Prince’s record featuring Wande Coal.
“I loved her cover. She was one of the people that participated. She didn’t win, but she was high up there.
“I didn’t pick the winners. I liked her but you can’t sign anybody. That’s one person I also regretted; I won’t say regret, but I wish we worked on stuff together,” He said.
He went further to reveal that he knew Teni before she became popular and they were checking up on each other, but he never thought of signing her and when he thought of that, another fast music record signed her and he regretted it.
