Simi’s Critique of Controversial Speaker
Popular female singer Simi has publicly criticized a female speaker on the social media platform X in response to a contentious video where the speaker is seen surfing the internet.
In the swiftly viral video, the teacher is offering advice to single women on how to secure a husband.
Simi’s Strong Stance on Gender Issues
Simi, who is well-known for her unwavering stance on gender-related matters, expressed her strong disapproval of the speaker’s message.
She emphasized that the advice in the video promotes self-hatred rather than empowerment. Simi wasted no time in responding to the video, paraphrasing its content and sharing her own perspective on the matter.
Questioning the Message
In her response, Simi pointed out that self-hatred persists, even when disguised as “nice advice.” She drew attention to the prevalence of lightening creams and hair products in regions where the majority of people have dark skin.
These products, in her view, contribute to the perpetuation of harmful beauty standards that impact women.
Critiquing the Role of Public Figures
Simi didn’t stop at critiquing the message; she also questioned the speaker’s role as a public figure. She suggested that the speaker is perpetuating damaging stereotypes and standards from her platform.
Simi’s remark, “Wetin God no send una, na hin una like to dey do,” implies that the preacher is focusing on matters that God did not assign to her.
Affirming Women’s Worth
Simi concluded her post by affirming the worth of women and countering the preacher’s message by assuring women that they are ‘enough’ just as they are.
Her response has garnered significant attention on social media, igniting a conversation about self-love and societal beauty standards.
Joining the Conversation
Simi’s outspoken critique has opened up a dialogue on the impact of such messages on women’s self-esteem and the need to promote healthy self-perception and empowerment.
The singer’s strong response has sparked discussions about gender, beauty, and societal expectations.
