Singer, Simi has stated that she isn’t bothered when people criticize her dress sense.
During an Instagram Live session during the week, Simi said: “I remember when they used to say that to succeed as a female artiste, one had to dress in a certain way. I am really stubborn, and I was resolute that I don’t want to get success on somebody else’s terms. People used to bash me saying I did not dress like a celebrity.”
Speaking further, Simi added that there was a time she was scared about how her career would turn out.
“One will always be afraid because one doesn’t know what will happen (eventually). One doesn’t know if people will like one’s song. There are many people that started in the industry with me but things did not pan out the way they wanted. There is no guarantee (for success).
“You cannot be waiting for people to believe in you because people tend to believe in things that are (already) working. People will invest their time and resources if they see that you have done the same thing for yourself. There were days I was scared. I felt stuck and I used to be so sad.”
