Award-winning singer, Simisola Kosoko, better known as Simi, has stated that her greatest achievement so far is her daughter, Adejare.
The singer, who has always aired her opinion about the injustice done to women and their career achievements through her songs, also gave an insight into her latest single “Women,” which chronicled the plights of women and girls.
Speaking during an Instagram live session monitored by Saturday Beats, She said,
“There were some ideas about women that were not very useful for women but I felt like it would be good to use my sound to speak out for my people (women.)
The funny thing is that I expected more backlash and attacks after I dropped the song. But I am genuinely surprised that people are receptive to the song. I think that people are more open to discussions especially if one is privileged in life. I had an interview a few days ago and the interviewer asked me “Do you hate men?” I replied that I don’t think I have ever said or done anything that insinuates that I hate men, I don’t have any reason to hate men.
I simply want better things for women; I just want women to have what they deserve. I may not be able to change the world today or tomorrow but I am hoping that it can be a part of the steps that we are going to take to (get to) that point.
Obviously, things used to be worse than this but thankfully we have more women now that are more outspoken than in the past.
