Newly weded singer, Simi has gone on twitter to rant about those that jump on social media to make fun of socio-political issues all in the name of banter.
She also blasted those who focus on less important issues when bigger problems continue to trouble Nigeria.
Although she mentioned no one, her rant might be connected to the jabs that were rained on Banky W after he spoke on the sack of the CJN, Walter Onnoghen.
Her words, “My issue with social media politics in Nig is we get so carried away by the anonymous power social media gives us, that we tend to waste so much time focusing on the least important things. Things that basically have no long term impact. Meanwhile, the country is on fire :)”
“Social media is a drug. U always want a fix. Whatever is trending, you jump on – whether or not it makes sense to, you jump on it, because everyone else is jumping on it. Make a spectacle out of it. Until the next fix.”
“The world is leaving Nigeria behind for an entire day you will never get back, you can say you’ve been able to talk extensively about someone’s head. Because you disagree with his opinion. It’s mind-numbingly sad. 🙂”
“If it’s not someone’s head. It’s someone’s English. Or something so incredibly irrelevant. It’s always something irrelevant. I don’t think we understand how bad things are.
We don’t see how deep the rut we’re in is. Lol. Cos if we did see…boy!”
