Simi, also known as Simisola Kosoko, a Nigerian musician, has experienced an incredible encounter with legendary American rapper J. Cole.
She claimed that J. Cole acknowledged her songwriting abilities, which she saw as a major accomplishment in her career.
Simi made this revelation on social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter) on a Friday. In her post, she mentioned that J. Cole had complimented her penmanship, describing it as “lit.”
She humorously stated that receiving such praise from a Grammy-winning rapper was a clear indication that she had “made it.”
JCole said my pen is lit. So yea. I made it mommy.

A curious fan responded to her post, asking if she would have shared the information if the compliment had come from a Nigerian rapper like Ruggedman, Mode9, or Vector.
Simi replied by saying she probably would not have shared it in that case.
This exchange highlights the significance of recognition and praise from international artists and how it can be seen as a validation of an artist’s talent and success.
It also underscores the influence of global collaborations and interactions within the music industry.
