Simeon’s dream of becoming a recording artist took the next gear in 2011. That was when he met a man called Johnicks, the CEO of Johnicks Studiovilla. The moment, according to him, changed his whole life. As someone who had always wanted to go to a studio and record some of his songs , of cause he had written a lot. Speed T never knew where to find a studio, neither did he have the money to record a song even if he discovered one. Precisely, on the 3rd day of December 2011, Simeon came out for a musical contest organized by Johnicks which was made known to him by a cousin brother, Thomas.
Tsekaa had to borrow N3500 so as to enable him register for the audition. That was not all for the star. After getting the registration fee of N3500, the Take It Easy crooner went looking for transport fare which he finally got as luck could have it. Tsekaa was finally able to avail himself at the audition venue, Johnicks studio Villa. Four winners were needed for that night and he happened to be one of them.
Meeting Johnicks was a whole new beginning for the star, according to him, a life changer! He further likened their relationship to that of Wizkid and Banky W. He said; when I look at me and Johnicks, what comes to my mind is Wizkid & Banky. Simeon has done a couple of songs since then till date.
Follow Me Go by G_Squad, Take It Easy featuring Inas, Shey She Know, featuring Flexo, E No Mean, Ginger, Koko Body, featuring Ordizo and lots more.
It’s been a long time coming, if I say e soft, I lie, but we dey hustle pray and hoping God open doors for brighter days. Sometimes I even use my transport and upkeep money to record songs, I believe someday it’s gonna pay. He stated.
Tsekaa has a lot of love for these various artistes; Wande Coal, Wizkid, Chris Brown, Davido, FireBoy, Joeboy among others in the industry. The awesome singer also acknowledged to be influenced greatly by Westlife.
It could be recalled by his class mates back then in Junior secondary school that Speed T never kept quiet while in class. This lover of music was always drumming his desk and singing. The other students loved him for this and admired his voice. This, according to the recording act was a pat on the back as it kept him going.
Simeon wrote his first song in 2006, in Victoria Island Lagos. Since then, Speed T has been pushing and hoping God will make a way for his voice to be heard all around the globe.
