Nigeria is a scary place to be – songstress Simi rants


Nigerian songstress, Simi, has described her home country as a scary place to be.

In a series of posts on Twitter, the ‘Joromi’ hitmaker lamented over the broken institutional system in the country which is gradually turning the country into a lawless one.

“Nigeria is a fucking scary place to be. The worst part is a lot of crazy stuff happens because they KNOW there will be no consequences. It’s not rocket science. But how do we get from where we are to where we need to be?? + it’s not just the government, it’s us too. She wrote

“We’re just getting by. No confidence in this broken system. So we hope that today is good for us and that we see tomorrow. Rinse and repeat. Surviving, instead of actually living.”

The newly married singer further ranted over selfish leaders I the country.

“We have people fighting for leadership positions only to serve themselves. Not us. They really couldn’t give less of a fuck about us. STILL we turn on each other to serve them. So absolutely, ridiculously stupid! We’re supposed to be on the same side.

“But it’s not enough for only a few people to think this way. Because why on earth should I fight if I know you won’t have my back. Why on earth would you fight if you think I won’t fight with you? So you see – the problem is us.”
