Speaking in an interview with actor and filmmaker, Kunle Afod, the actress said she left everything in 2018 so she could be closer to her child.

According to the movie star, she has not returned to her motherland since then even though she misses Nigeria a lot. The things she misses most about the country include the roadside food vendors, being on movie sets, her family and friends.

Simeon said; “As many people know, my child and his father reside in America, and that’s one of the reasons I decided to relocate here.

“I left Nigeria in 2018 and I have not returned since then. I miss Nigeria a lot. The things I miss most especially are the roadside food vendors. Things like roasted yam, roasted corn, food that they hawk.

“I miss my family and friends and I also miss being on set, especially when I see actors and actresses sharing behind-the-scenes moments on their social media platforms.”
