Simi opens up on challenges women face in the Nigerian music industry

Singer, Simi took to Twitter to narrate her experience in the music industry, saying it’s something female entertainers, have to endure.

The mom of one said female entertainers are constantly pitted against each other and can hardly get away with the kind of things men in the industry get away with.

The singer who is married to her colleague, Adekunle Gold said: “Tbh some of the things I’ve experienced – specifically as a woman – in this industry. Lol. They will try to pit you against other women. Try to redefine ur value. Try to get in your head and remodel your self esteem. And I have even had it easier than many…

“Ati executive oh. Ati audience oh. It comes from all the sides. That’s why I fuck with any woman that is winning in this industry – because hurdle is much dear. Women can hardly get away with the kinds of things many men in the same industry get away with on a regular.”

“For every woman that is making it, there are tons of women that have been broken. If u stand up for urself, “she’s difficult”. If u’re not a pushover, “she’s proud”. If u take time for urself, “she’s lazy.” If u ask for what you deserve, “she’s greedy”. Well, fuck you then.”
