Nigerian singer, Simi opens up for the first time on how she deals with negative criticism, especially from people who hop on her page to say unkind things.
The ‘Jamb Question’ singer took to Instagram yesterday, May 24, 2016 writing, “Some people go out of their way to be cruel,” the singer wrote yesterday while sharing a nice message she received from a fan. “They don’t even know you, they just feel the need to be mean because it’s their constitutional right.”
“I’ve been feeling quite grumpy and a bit moody all evening (not sure why ). But I just saw this, and it made me feel so much better.
This is why I wake up everyday, eager to write another song, make another record. This is why I don’t go to bed until 3am most nights. This is why I want to learn, grow and be better. This is why I still drag myself to the studio even when I’m ill.
It’s because of the beautiful souls out there who can feel what I’m trying to tell them or show them through my music. I have soooo much I want to share with you guys. I swear, you make it worthwhile. You make me so happy. I’m so blessed to know you. Thank you.
Some people go out of their way to be cruel. They don’t even know you, they just feel the need to be mean because it is their constitutional right – the power of social media eh? Lol. I love you. I swear, I don’t even get mad. I’m too busy getting ready for my Grammy and planning my mum’s 60th birthday. But for those that show me love, (even those that criticise me without spite), I love you. Thank u for being part of the reason for my growth. I don’t take you for granted. Thank you.
PS: Most of all, thank you for letting me rant. I donno how iz doing me tbh #PeaceLoveAndsimiArmy.”
