Singer Simi speaks against societal double standards on cheating in relationships
By Osahon Ibizugbe,
After being romantically linked with colleague, Adekunle Gold, singer, Simi has cleared the air about why the former was the only featured artiste on her debut album.
She said, the song simply made the final list, not that there was anything special or extraordinary involved.
In a chat with HipTv, the 29-year-old singer also seized the opportunity to talk about why the society should not be hard on women who cheat in relationships.
Simi said: “Nobody is allowed to cheat in a relationship, but they do it any. If a man cheats he’s scum, if a woman cheats, she’s scum. Obviously, people are harder on women, if it happens to a woman. The society is harder on women who cheat. I think that is ridiculous. I feel like If you value what you have, If you value someone you are with, you are going to do your best to treat them right. It’s the same for both a guy and a girl.
The singer also added that: “It’s a man’s world because we let it be a man’s world. It’s not a man’s world because they have any special powers. It’s not a woman’s world because we have any special powers; we are all supposed to be good to each other. I am supposed to value you as a man and you are supposed to value me as a woman.”
