Go listen to someone else – Simi fires fans asking her to change her sound

Nigerian singer, Simi, has apparently gotten tired of the endless suggestions from fans that she should change her style of music.

The ‘Duduke’ crooner lashed out at fans after she shared a video of her on Twitter (X) singing one of her new songs and a tweep quoted the post, asking her to emulate her husband, Adekunle Gold and “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.”

Some others in the comment section agreed with the opinion and also told her to consider the recommendation.

Angered by their comments, 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 a separate series of posts, the mother of one urged those who do not like her songs to go listen to other musicians.

Simi further explained that British music star, 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.”
