Simi loses temper over comparison with Adekunle Gold


Singer Simi has lost her temper at fans asking her to change her style of music while comparing her sound with Adekunle Gold’s, her husband.

The ‘Duduke’ singer shared a clip of her singing one of her new songs on the X platform on Thursday and a fan quoted the post, asking her to “switch up” her sound.

The fan with the handle @Zeebaby_X wrote, “Girlll switch it up a bit… change your sound.

“Your hubby changes his sound and it’s amazing to see. Do the same you’re too good to be doing basic shit.”

Other fans also took the comment section, concording with her.

Angered by the conversation sparked by her comment, Simi wrote, “Lol you people see I’m minding my business yea? Alright alright Zeebaby, talk to me. Tell me the last say… 10 songs I’ve put out and let’s dissect. Which ones sound the same? Then tell me how your faves are doing it different/better than me. Or perhaps u want me to change my genre? Or I should use more lamba? Or is it my voice? It’s too soft or sweet or sharp for you? I should swallow balloon for diversity? We’re not fighting. I honestly want your feedback. Direct me. Help me Zeebaby.”

In another thread, the singer urged those who do not like her songs to go listen to other musicians.

She explained that British singer Adele does the same style of music but her fans do not complain.

She wrote, “Omo because I’m doing girl next door, some of you think maybe I’m ok like that. If you don’t like my song, please go and listen to your faves. I’m begging. If it’s the features you want to allow yourself acknowledge my talent, hear that one and be going.

“Na the same ballad Adele dey sing all these days, her people no disturb am. E fi mi sile. If you don’t like what I’m selling, go and listen to the one you like. Unless you don’t have data. And if you don’t have, owo e lo wa ku si.”
