Simisola Kosoko, a well-known Nigerian international musician, has responded to trolls who criticise her work.
This came after a tweep tweeted about not liking Simi’s voice on her singles but loving all of her features.
“I’m not a huge fan of Simi’s voice on singles, but I love all of her features; I can’t wait for this one!”
This irritated Simi, who chastised the tweep for validating her voice based on her appearance, which are predominantly of the opposite gender.
Simi claimed she is the same writer and singer but most people wait for the male who features her before they validate her talent.
“It’s literally the same voice. The same writer. The same singer. This is gonna be hard to hear, but some of you wait for men (because na dem dey feature me) to give you permission to validate my talent. I honestly say this with zero malice. I’m just used to it now and I think people should just enjoy what they enjoy rather than make it seem like I off my magic button when I’m singing my own songs. Nobody will beat you.”
