Nigerian singer, Simi has replied Gay rights activist, Bisi Alimi after he called her an hypocrite who promote local homophobic violence.
Simi had spoken against people hating others for being different and also against “killings” which she said is now normal.
“And we have our own people killing us in the streets and it has become so normal now. It’s almost more abhorrent. As fucked as it is, it is one thing for people to be intimidated by and hate you for being different, but how do you not value someone the exact same as you? “
Bisi Alimi who slammed Simi over the tweet, accused her of hypocrisy and promoting local homophobic violence. The gay rights activist’s response was centered on one of Simi’s “Stoopid Sessions” Youtube shows, in which she alleged that homosexuality is not natural but learned.
Bisi described Simi as a disgrace, and further added that Nigerian elites would rather align with abroad struggle than be a local hero.
“There is a name you call the #Nigeria middle/upper class elites that sympathise with abroad blackness but promote local homophobic violence against there own #LGBT; hypocrites. The @SympLySimi of this world. You are a disgrace.
Nigeria elites are oblivious to that, because they can fly around the world, they would rather align with abroad struggle than be a local hero”
Simi replies the Gay rights activist, Bisi Alimi in a new tweet; “Bash me how you want but watch what you say about mines mf”
