Singer, Simi, has responded to a tweet by Candace Owens where he stated that Nigerians in the US are more successful than other ethnic groups.
The songstress has, thus, called on all Nigerians to replicate that in the country and do better in any position they find themselves in.
She wrote on social media:
“Imagine the magic we could do in this country if it were conducive. If electricity was stable. If the health sector was reliable. If public education was up to standard, etc. We Nigerians go outside and give out the magic we could so easily bestow on our own land because even when u try to work it here, it doesn’t work. Doctors, creatives, tech people, entrepreneurs…etc. We’re capable – we just need a chance to show it.”
The singer, while reacting to the high rate of sexual abuse against women, said: “I wish with all my heart the leaders would put Nigeria and the people first. Not their greed, nor their thirst for power. Imagine, just imagine actually making this country work and having ur children grow up proud they were born to people that care enough to make a difference for everyone – not just for themselves. Imagine foreigners being desperate to come to Nigeria because it’s incredible.
“Also, bloggers, you need to do better men. Most Nigerians go to you for ALL of their Nigerian news and most of what you have to offer is the pain, the bad, the evil, the chaos. People come to u and practically everything u have to say is depressing. Everyone else sells their country so well, we wanna run there – but we drag our country in the mud so well, nobody sees anything good in us.
“Also, the people, everything has been difficult and frustrating so long, you’re becoming the thing you detest. We don’t even try anymore. We’re just as bad. Break the law cos you can. You steal cos you can. No one understands that all we have is us. And when we lose that, we have nothing left. There’ll always be stupid people – but you definitely don’t have to be one of them.
“Do better. Think bigger. Money, fame, power, likes, talent, traffic is not everything. It only lasts as long as people are paying attention. Do better. 🇳🇬.”
