Taking to the social media platform, Twitter on Friday afternoon, the songstress held nothing back divulging the acrimony of being not only a woman but a mother in the industry.

Read what she wrote;

“Tbh some of the things I’ve experienced – specifically as a woman – in this industry.

Lol. They will try to pit you against other women.

Try to redefine ur value.

Try to get in your head and remodel your self-esteem.

And I have even had it easier than many…”


Simi continued;

“Ati executive oh.

Ati audience oh.

It comes from all sides.

That’s why I fuck with any woman that is winning in this industry – because hurdle is much dear.

Women can hardly get away with the kinds of things many men in the same industry get away with on a regular.


She added that when a woman in the industry stands up for herself, she’s called “difficult”…


Simi wrote further;

“For every woman that is making it, there are tons of women that have been broken. If u stand up for urself, “she’s difficult”. If u’re not a pushover, “she’s proud”. In fact, If u take time for urself, “she’s lazy.” If u ask for what you deserve, “she’s greedy”. Well, fuck you then.”


She pointed out that female artists have to be better than the average male artiste to make it in the industry and she has never seen a mediocre female artist make it.
