What has Simi done for others?
A different portion of his post was directed at Simi who has grown a reputation for speaking about issues affecting women on social media and through her works.
"I’m also very curious to know what Simi is doing to help females into the music industry."
The individual went on to ask why it’s so common for male stars to give a platform to younger male stars. He sighted an example of Wizkid, 2baba, Banky W among others who discovered other male talents after they became successful.
Kelvin also compared Tiwa Savage and Naira Marley, and how the former has not done much in terms of creating opportunities for female talents even though she is bigger than the latter.
