Simi however, was not having it as she wasted no time in checking the fan.
She responded saying: "Everytime ‘celebrities should go out’ – but u dnt have their back when they do. When u see the guns, u run. When their lives are on the line, u no dey. Who wants to die for ppl that don’t care. Why is som1 more qualified to fight cos they can act or sing? It’s everybody’s fight”
Meanwhile, Nigerian singer, Davido, has also reacted sadly to the development. According to him, justice is slowly becoming a thing of the past in Nigeria. According to him, a child whose dream is o become a lawyer might be discouraged after seeing the drama that played out in court between Sowore and the security agents.
