Sensational singer, Simi has reacted to the rearrest of Nigerian activist, Omoyele Sowore and she finds it completely ridiculous.
Simi has joined the plethora of celebrities that are not too happy about Sowore’s arrest. She took to her Twitter page to share her views on the topic.
According to her, the case is completely ridiculous and unnecessary. “This Sowore matter is sooooo ridiculous”, she said.
However, a fan attacked her for tweeting more than taking action. He explained that she has a large platform and can use that as an avenue to lecture fans on politics.
“Yes it is Simi.But you can do more than tweet, you have a huge platform,u have followers,we can partner with you to give them a political education on why this act should not be condoned and what can be done about it.Our people need information, u can help spread it, the fan said.
Simi responded explaining that the fans that talk about celebrities going out are the ones that end up running away. He further explained that the fight is not only for the singers but for all Nigerians.
“Everytime ‘celebrities should go out’ – but u dnt have their back when they do. When u see the guns, u run. When their lives are on the line, u no dey. Who wants to die for ppl that don’t care. Why is som1 more qualified to fight cos they can act or sing? It’s everybody’s fight”
