Nigerian Man living in Canada pens his displeasure to Simi

Published

on

A Canada-based Nigerian man has called out singer Simi over her recent rants against the activities of Yahoo Boys in the country.

He, however, wants the singer to focus more on the slums of Lagos, especially in Bariga to have a 1st hand experience of what the poor masses are passing through, and not just ranting from the comfort of her luxurious home.
The man who made it cleat that he is not a fan of her music, actually wants her to do more rather than focus on internet fraudsters.
He wrote;
I hesitated to address your recent pep talk because I’d sound hypocritical and my stand will be morally selective which is not my intent. Simi, I’m glad you’ve made headway in this treacherous industry even though I’m not a fan of your music.
Your voice annoys me. You remind me of a CAC chorister back in my uni hostel who would wake the whole hostel up singing Tope Alabi’s songs whilst doing her laundry by the well.
I’ve never bought your album/songs and I hurriedly skip them when they pop up in my streams. I’m not a hater, just absolutely not a fan. I pray you to continue to be successful in your career.
On your recent tirade. Simi you behaved like an out of touch elitist and showed that you lacked exposure and empathy to the plight of people who live on the other unsavory side. From what I deduced, you went to a private school and from the known fees, I guess your parents are possibly a middle class or well off.
Therefore your rose petaled path through life has clouded your idea of what the reality of life on the streets of Nigeria is. iFraud, by all means, is wrong and it’s ripple effects is immeasurable.
You see, I grew up in the Oworo, Bariga and Makoko axis, this runs from the start of the third mainland bridge all the way to Adeniji, next time you’re cruising through just take a look at the ghettos on your right as you ascend the bridge.
Poverty is rife there and I witnessed it first hand. Simi have you experienced watching your mother gasp for breath as life slowly leaves her because of the lack of 200naira ventolin inhaler? When I was 7, I witnessed a neighbor/friend of mine pass away right in his mother’s arms because of lack of care for his sickle cell condition.
His father put his corpse in a rice sack and went to dump his body in the lagoon in the middle of the night, because they couldn’t afford to bury him. In the same sack the boy had used to hawk rice earlier in the day! I didn’t write this to garner empathy from the readers in support of reasons why a lot of Nigerians are into fraud but to make you understand that if you haven’t been in a situation where your humanity and morality has been tested to its limit then don’t be unsympathetic!
Our government is committing capital murder in the way our citizens are being treated. I call it capital murder because there is no reason why any Nigerian should die from malaria in 2019! But it’s happening.
As you’re reading this, some young girls are braving the perils of the desert and high seas which include rape, kidnapping and death to get to Europe just to get there and go through the unimaginable to raise funds for their families back home.
Simi you can’t walk in their sand filled shoes! You’d say they have a choice and there are jobs. That’s easily said on paper. There are no jobs!!!
There’s absolutely nothing and penury is the order of the day. A lot of people are burying their conscience in a bid to survive in Nigeria.
Do you think the ladies of the night when asked as kids said ” I’d like to stand by the road all night and offer my body to be plowed by different phalluses till the break of dawn and beyond ”
The government has failed them, the church that is supposed to be the bedrock of morality in the community is ripping the people off their hard earned sweat in exchange for placebo hopes. Don’t attack the dejected and rejected Simi.
You were beating your chest saying you care. Alright, take your sermon to the slums of Bariga and I pray you come back unscathed.

Nicki Minaj agrees “Essence” should be song of the year at the Grammys

Published

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
