Nigerian singer and songwriter, Simisola Bolatito Ogunleye, popularly known as Simi who just released her sophomore album entitled ‘Simisola’ has responded to reactions on her new song as she speaks on ‘Society and Women’.
‘Simisola’ has attracted various reactions because the singer featured her alleged boyfriend, Adekunle Gold.
Reacting to the assumptions on featuring him, the 29-year-old singer said there is no special reason for featuring only Adekunle Gold on the album.
According to her, “The only reason why I featured just Adekunle Gold on the album was because after recording all the songs, the only song that had a feature and that made the final list is the one that Adekunle Gold was featured on”.
The “JOROMI” crooner also stated that the society is harder on women who cheat.
“Nobody is allowed to cheat in a relationship, but they do it any. If a man cheats he’s scum, if a woman cheats, she’s scum… Obviously, people are harder on women, if it happens to a woman.
The society is harder on women who cheat. I think that is ridiculous. I feel like If you value what you have, If you value someone you are with, you are going to do your best to treat them right. It’s the same for both a guy and a girl”, she said.
“It’s a man’s world because we let it be a man’s world. It’s not a man’s world because they have any special powers. It’s not a woman’s world because we have any special powers, we are all supposed to be good to each other. I am supposed to value you as a man and you are supposed to value me as a woman’, she added.
