The singer, Simisola Ogunleye better known in the music industry and by fans as 'Simi' released the Duduke song on April 16 2020, while the video was released on April 19, 2020, three days later.

Duduke is mid-tempo hip hop with blends of Afrobeats and R&B. The 2:52 minutes single by Simi plays on the sound the songwriter's heart makes when she thinks about her love interest (her baby in this case).

According to Simi, Duduke means, "the beat of a heart or a drum" as she uses that to describe her heartbeat for her unborn baby who she referred to as a "guardian angel".

The song, Duduke came four months after her single, "Selense" and also after her collaboration with Ladipoe in his new record, "Know You".

Duduke is Simi's first official single for 2020 and was produced by the highly-gifted Oscar.

You can easily tell that Duduke's song is a 'hot cake' when it ranked number one in the Apple music chart.

Even though, "Something Different", a song by Simi's husband, Adekunle Gold, later overtook Duduke to rank number 1, a song that stands as number two out of the 100 most played songs in Nigeria still deserves some accolades.

The couple, Simi and Adekunle Gold did take to their social media accounts to celebrate their great feat with grateful words while sharing screenshots of their place on the Top 100 list. Gold did hype his wife's song release.

Since she broke out with her song, "Tiff" in 2014, Simi has continuously had a hit song almost every year. Remember, "Jamb Question", "Joromi", "Owambe" and "Mind your Business". They were all hit songs.

The Duduke latest single has earned massive hits as it topped charts on every DSP while making rounds in various radio and TV stations. At a point, it was undoubtedly one of the most played songs in Africa with people even partaking in the #DudukeChallenge.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, singer Simi's song Duduke maintained a spot in the Top 10 on Apple Music, Audiomack and Spotify. In fact, she was the only woman to record that feat for up to 30 days.

The Duduke video

Simi, in her release, Duduke revealed that she is expecting her first child with her husband, Adekunle Gold.

The song video which showed her baby bump started with a pop piano riff followed by a switch to highlife with smoother guitar riffs and African percussions.

The song visuals also showed her playing the piano in front of the beach shoreline while occasionally caressing her obviously protruded stomach through her silky, flowing, yellow gown.

The song is more of a classic mid-tempo afrobeat number with just the needed bounce to get you in the mood and onto the dancefloor.

Prior to the release of the Duduke video, fans, media and followers had rumoured that the "Joromi" crooner was pregnant. When the Duduke video finally came out, it was a confirmation of the suspicions and the rumours.

With lines such as; "I cannot wait to see you, you are the treasure I have been waiting for...I am waiting for the day I finally get to kiss you", it was apparent the then-pregnant Simi was singing to her unborn baby.

The music was released under her own record label, Studio Brat and coincided with her 32nd birthday.

The "Duduke Challenge"

Simi kept fans entertained during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown not only with the release of her Duduke song but also with the #DudukeChallenge that followed suit.

The energetic singer started up the challenge with a stunning video of herself rocking with the baby bump. She mesmerised fans with a viral video of her effortlessly dancing to her song.

The video which she shared on Tik Tok showed her dressed in a dark coloured hoodie, bum-shorts and a pair of thigh-length socks. She had a black leather beret go with her outfit while she gave her fans really cool dance moves in tune with the Duduke song.

After sharing the video which she tagged #DudukeChallenge, Simi called on her fans to join in the dance challenge.

"They said 'Simi, can we see you dancing?' Follow me on @tiktok and lemme see whether you can move your body like this with ur real bellies or fake judgement", she wrote.
