    On the 5th of March, in a series of tweets, Simi revealed as a woman in the music industry, it hasn’t been easy trying to make it big.

    She said that both labels and fans contribute to the issues they face and how Female artists are pit against each other.

    She wrote;

    “Tbh some of the things I’ve experienced – specifically as a woman – in this industry. Lol. They will try to pit you against other women. Try to redefine ur value. Try to get in your head and remodel your self esteem. And I have even had it easier than many…

    Ati executive oh. Ati audience oh. It comes from all the sides. That’s why I fuck with any woman that is winning in this industry – because hurdle is much dear. Women can hardly get away with the kinds of things many men in the same industry get away with on a regular.”

    “When a woman complains about the shit she’s experiencing, I see many people saying “what about so and so” does she have 2 heads. To me, that’s unfortunate, because everybody’s experience is different. Your truth cannot invalidate someone else’s.

    For every woman that is making it, there are tons of women that have been broken. If u stand up for urself, “she’s difficult”. If u’re not a pushover, “she’s proud”. If u take time for urself, “she’s lazy.” If u ask for what you deserve, “she’s greedy”. Well, fuck you then.”

    “Have you ever settled down to think that a woman that might seem difficult because she’s the only one on her side, so she has to play all these roles? Fighting family, fighting industry, fighting stereotypes!

    And if you’re here to say “men also go through it.” It’s true. Nobody is dragging suffering with you. I know some men have it hard, but I ain’t never seen a mediocre female artist make it! etc

    Ladies trying to get ahead in this industry – be careful the fucks u give, cos many don’t care about u as much as they care about using u. Protect yourself. When it’s you vs the industry, put urself first. Make sure ur material is great and don’t ever stop standing up for urself!”
