Popular Nigerian singer, Simisola Ogunleye best known as Simi, who is hailed mostly for her lovely and refreshing music but constantly criticized for her fashion sense, has said that she would rather focus on making good music than her dressing.
Speaking recently in a chat with PUNCH, the X3M Music songbird declared that people’s opinion about her fashion sense doesn’t move her one bit.
She added that her goal is to make good music for her fans and not entertain them with dressing.
She said: “I believe that everybody is entitled to their opinions. Some people may say that they don’t like my dress, shoes or any other thing. I don’t find that surprising or strange because there are also a lot of dresses and shoes that I don’t like. I like to be comfortable in whatever I wear and that is what dictates my outfits.
“A lot of people have expressed their views about my dress sense on social media. Sometimes, I ‘humour’ them. You can express yourself on my page but don’t be rude or insulting.
“Some of the people, who make those comments, are just full of hate and they just go all around the Internet, looking for where to spread their hate. I am comfortable in my own skin and I just want to keep making good music and connect with my true fans.”
Simi was also the chief bridesmaid at her mother’s wedding recently and recalled the experience:
“It was a wonderful experience. Seeing my mother so happy was something I definitely enjoyed. I wish her and her husband best of luck in their marital journey.”
