Popular Nigerian singer Simi has advised people against engaging in verbal conversations with Nigerians.
Simi maintained that most Nigerians are rooting for victory and will stop at nothing to achieve their goal.
The singer said this while sharing her thoughts on the ultimate goal of every Nigerian in a verbal battle.
Simi warned that anyone who is not emotionally strong should avoid word fights with a Nigerian because there is nothing they will not say to win.
She said, “Look, if you are not emotionally strong, you should never engage in a word fight with a Nigerian. Being forewarned means keeping both feet on the ground.
“If a Nigerian gets into a word fight with you, they are fighting to win… there is nothing they will not say. And when they're done with you, they'll face your parents.”
Why I asked Simi to sleep with me before they started working together – Brymo
Meanwhile, Nigerian musician Ọlawale Ọloforo better known as Brymo has given the reason why he asked for sex for music from his female colleague Simi.
Brymo, who recently sparked controversy after revealing he demanded a sexual relationship from Simi instead of a musical collaboration, described his action as an “artistic pursuit.”
This did not go down well with Simi's husband, singer Adekunle Gold, who warned him to “stay away” from his wife and “stop disrespecting” his family.
However, in a recent interview with TVC, Brymo defended his sexual advances towards the singer.
He said: “One day I was somewhere and I met Adekunle Gold, I just thought, 'Oh! Gold.' First time I ever met him. And he asked for a collaboration… When he came to me, I said bluntly, 'Oga, I'm not collaborating right now.'
“Simi came two weeks later. I didn't know them (Simi and Adekunle Gold were together). I'm sure you all know about Falz. He took the fall I should have taken. I was the target… But I'm a smart guy.
“When I saw her (Simi) I said: no facial features, except I'm lying with the woman I work with, so it can be really intense. Didn't she sleep with Adekunle Gold? Isn't that why the music is extra good? But she said no, and I was like, okay, goodbye, and then she left.
'She wasn't the only one I suggested it to. But guess what? I've made music with seven women. I haven't slept with any of them.
“After that incident, I recorded songs with four women. We didn't have that (sexual) conversation at all. We just made music. So it wasn't about me asking for sex for cooperation. No, no, that wasn't the point. For me it was an artistic activity.”
