‘Tems yansh’ Post: Simi Tackles Samklef On Twitter
Simi, the Nigerian superstar, is slugging it out with Samklef, music producer, over an inciting tweet.
On Saturday, Wizkid shared a snippet of himself and Tems on set for the video of their collaboration, ‘Essence’.
Thereafter, some Twitter users stormed the microblogging app to express their desire to see Tems’ bum in the video
Joining the fray, Samklef took to his page to also note that he can’t wait to see Tems’ backside.
“Everybody can’t wait to see Tems yansh. Me sef dey wait. Who dey wait with me,” his now-deleted tweet read.
However, the music producer’s comment did not go down well with his colleagues as Simi reprimanded him for it.
She retweeted his post to her Twitter timeline, disapprovingly asking Samklef what was wrong with him.
To defend his tweet, the music producer posted a series of now-deleted tweets and lashed back at Simi. Describing her criticism as “eye service”, Samklef asked why she decided to go public rather than reach out to him personally.
“I’m doing this video because I need to sincerely apologise first. I posted that caption because Wizkid and Tems were going to do a video,” he said in another video.
“So people are saying, ‘we can’t wait to see her backside’. Everybody knows I play too much. Simi has my DM. She did not message me but went on Twitter because she wants to see me down.
“She couldn’t DM me if she felt the tweet was sensitive. One of my friends called me. But she had the guts. Who are you? Because of you, I left the gospel music industry. People don’t know how fake you are.”
Samklef is known for the frequency with which he engages his fans and expresses his opinions on social media.
