Sensational Singer, Simi has lamented about the fact that suffering is now the order of the day in Nigeria.
Taking to her Twitter page in a lengthy post, Simi wrote that Nigerians have gotten so used to suffering that they think it’s normal. According to her, Nigerians have to use money to access a service that they actually deserve and that bribes mean nothing but survival. She added that to have access to services ranging from Education, Health, and so on, one must have to spend money which Simi finds disgusting.
She wrote: “You begged people to vote for u and then you looked away. Anything you accept for the Nigerian people should be something you would also accept for yourself and your children. That’s what a true leader is. And if you cannot do the job, get the fuck! Every year new budget. Billions allocated to things that never get done! Health? ZeroEducation? Zero Electricity? Zero.Only wickedness will make u see ur people suffering like this and u can still sleep at night. If u cannot do the job, GET THE FUCK!
Budget money for the same road 20 times. Doctors doing surgery in Govt hospitals with phone torchlight. Many SS3 students in public schools can’t even speak one correct sentence in English. Cos u can do check up in London? Cos ur children are schooling in New York? U’re wicked!The Impunity is disgusting. People will continue to do whatever you let them get away with. Even if these damn leaders don’t have conscience, don’t they have sense? Rubbish!
Nigerians are so used to suffering now that they think it’s normal. If you don’t have money to “give someone” to get what you actually deserve, there’s almost no chance for progress. Bribe is not even bribe, it’s just survival.To get treatment in hospital, oga bring somtin You enter airport, madam bring somtin.To get out of jail for a crime you didn’t commit, brother bring somtin.To get admission you already earned when you passed the damn exam, sister bring somtin.A disgrace!
Everyday innocent people are dying. The disregard and lack of value for human life is astounding. You won’t even acknowledge them? Because u don’t know them? Because the tears of their mothers and fathers don’t matter to u? U’re wicked. History and posterity will judge u harshly!To think that there are tons and tons more stories of the Nigerian Police attacking people than there are of them actually protecting people. God save us.
They wanna die on “call me uncle” and “am I your mate”. You’ve not earned our respect though. It’s not enough that you’re old(er). You don’t respect us and our lives. So ditto.When you think about Nigeria, you get mad. So much potential for growth. I hate it when ignorant people think of Africa and believe we’re all malnourished children that need saving from the West or that we’re all like Tarzan. But the ball is in our court. Always has been

Beyonce’s publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure has reacted to Tiwa Savage’s video where she called on the singer to lend a voice to the ongoing protests in Nigeria.
In a 20-minute video shared via her Instagram page which happened to be taken from a live session with fans, Tiwa Savage shared her opinion on the issues plaguing the country from corruption, police brutality, and poverty. According to Tiwa, Beyonce needs to lend a voice to the ongoing protests happening in the country.
She urged Beyonce to use her platform which was used to reach out to all the Nigerian artistes for her “Black Is King” project. Tiwa said she was proud to be a part of the project as it helped change the way blacks are perceived globally but now the country where the creatives behind the project is currently experiencing troubles and she can not be quiet about it.
Reacting to her video, her publicist wrote that people should not judge based on people’s posts as some activists are actually working in the background while some are out in the streets. She wrote: ” Not all activists live on social media. Not all doers look for validation nor your approval. Not all work is for a Photo Op. Make it normal to stop judging people’s actions based on posts. Posts don’t make you an activist. Actions make you an activist. Whether in the background or out in the streets. We all choose a different path to get it done. Blessed are those who do not see yet they believe. Actions speak louder than posts! Stop Judging. S.T.O.P
