Simi who reacted to a tweet by Candace Owens, a prominent pro-Trump supporter on Nigerians being the most successful ethnic group in the United States, stated that Nigerians go outside to give the magic they can easily bring to their land because even when they try, it doesn't work.
Candace Owens in her tweets claimed that Nigerians are the most successful ethnic group in the United States, because they were not exposed to victim hood most black Democrats play. She tweeted;
Nigerian-Americans are the most successful ethnic group in the U.S! If you want to know how it’s possible that blacks who come from under-developed Africa, keep outperforming blacks from overprivileged America— it’s bc they weren’t exposed to the Democrat parasite of victimhood!
Simi in response to the tweet, said it was 'bittersweet' because Nigerians are capable of surmounting any challenge and just need an opportunity to show this. The 'Joromi' crooner also dropped an advice for those who break the law, because 'nothing' is working in the country. She wrote;
Mannnn! I just saw these tweets and it was bittersweet for me ?. Imagine the magic we could do in this country if it were conducive. If electricity was stable. If the health sector was reliable. If public education was up to standard, etc... We Nigerians go outside and give out the magic we could so easily bestow on our own land because even when u try to work it here, it doesn't work. Doctors, creatives, tech people, entrepreneurs...etc. We're capable - we just need a chance to show it.
I wish with all my heart the leaders would put Nigeria and the people first. Not their greed, nor their thirst for power. Imagine, just imagine actually making this country work and having ur children grow up proud they were born to people that care enough to make a difference for everyone - not just for themselves. Imagine foreigners being desperate to come to Nigeria because it's incredible.
