Simi, a talented Nigerian singer, has spoken on dating and marriage in Nigeria.
The Nigerian singer who has been rumoured to be romantically linked with Adekunle Gold and Falz at different points in time said Nigerian men are not romantic as most of them have been structured into believing they do not have to be romantic.
In her chat with Punch, the vibrant young lady who is buzzing with her hit tracks said she does not believe Nigerian men are romantic. She explained that she has no intention of shading them as she is merely stating the obvious.
According to her, most Nigerian men have a sense of entitlement and feel there is no need to fight for certain things. She made an illustration talking about some Nollywood movie she saw recently.
A man had cheated on his wife with another lady and had retraced his steps back home. The wife offended in the scenario was told to kneel down in front of the man afterwards. She sees this as a worrisome trend in Nigeria.
“A lot of men grow up in this country feeling entitled to certain things and they believe that they don’t have to work for anything. This has been the case for generations and a lot of our mothers were unhappy because the society expected them to stay in the relationship.”
Simi who described herself as a loyal lover said she is not asking women to leave their relationships even though she would want them to correct the abnormalities they are used to.
“I am not saying it is the right thing for people to leave their relationships but a man needs to fight for what he wants so he can value it. I think the problem is because a lot of Nigerian men feel self-entitled and I blame our culture and our mothers. Most mothers are the problem because when something happens, they are quick to advise the daughter and wives, they don’t tell the men that their actions are wrong. So if a man feels that he does not have to fight to keep the relationship, he would not.”
Simi hinted that she is presently enjoying the bliss and harmony of a relationship at the moment. According to her, she puts her all into a relationship the moment she gets in. She said she would only quit a relationship if the person she is dealing with betrays her trust.
