Simi replies netizen who said she doesn’t like her voice on singles

Shortly after Eniola shared her opinion online, Simi reacted to it. The Duduke crooner made it clear that it’s the same voice, same writer and same singer.

Not stopping there, she went ahead to add that some people wait for men to give them permission to validate her talent because they are the ones who feature her the most.

Her post reads:

“It's literally the same voice. The same writer. The same singer. This is gonna be hard to hear, but some of you wait for men (because na dem dey feature me) to give you permission to validate my talent. I honestly say this with zero malice. I'm just used to it now and I think people should just enjoy what they enjoy rather than make it seem like I off my magic button when I'm singing my own songs. Nobody will beat you.”

“Why is she complaining ? It is what it is! Usual occurrence with artistes! She won’t be the first nor the last! There are lots of artistes yes that general public find it hard to get into their song! Just something they can’t place their fingers on when they listen but always groove to same artistes music when they’re featured ! It’s not about “eh na because sey na man Dey Involved “ or what not narrative she pushing! Haven’t you listened to artistes that whenever they’re being featured, they don’t sound great ? As opposed to their own songs ?”


“Lmao every criticism of simi is somehow always linked to men. Any criticism is somehow always linked to patriarchy lol. What Simi said doesn’t make sense, what tickles one person won’t tickle another person. You can’t expect everybody to like every single thing you do, clearly she's riddled with insecurities when it comes to this, for her to respond this way.”
