For popular singer and music producer, Simisola Ogunleye, Nigeria is a scary place to live in.
In a series of tweets on her Twitter page, the singer who is professionally known as Simi said the citizens have failed to hold the government responsible; preferring to ignore problems and survive.
“Nigeria is a f**king scary place to be. The worst part is a lot of crazy stuff happens because they know there will be no consequences. It’s not rocket science. But how do we get from where we are to where we need to be?? + it’s not just the government, it’s us too,” she wrote.
“We’re just getting by. No confidence in this broken system. So we hope that today is good for us and that we see tomorrow. Rinse and repeat. Surviving, instead of actually living.”
Describing people vying for leadership positions in the country, she said: “We have people fighting for leadership positions only to serve themselves, not us.
“They really couldn’t give less of a f**k about us. Still, we turn on each other to serve them. So absolutely, ridiculously stupid! We’re supposed to be on the same side.”
According to the ‘Joromi’ singer, an absence of collective effort is responsible for the little progress achieved in the country.
“It’s not enough for only a few people to think this way because why on earth should I fight if I know you won’t have my back. Why on earth would you fight if you think I won’t fight with you? So you see – the problem is us.”
