Simisola Ogunleye, stage name Simi, has said that her music is more important to her than fashion will ever be.
Constantly the butt of many jokes when it comes to her choice of style, the Joromi crooner while speaking to Punch, said the comments don’t bother her as she chooses being comfortable over fashionable.
“I believe that everybody is entitled to their opinions. Some people may say that they don’t like my dress, shoes or any other thing. I don’t find that surprising or strange because there are also a lot of dresses and shoes that I don’t like. I like to be comfortable in whatever I wear and that is what dictates my outfits.”
“A lot of people have expressed their views about my dress sense on social media. Sometimes, I ‘humour’ them. You can express yourself on my page but don’t be rude or insulting. Some of the people, who make those comments, are just full of hate and they just go all around the Internet, looking for where to spread their hate. I am comfortable in my own skin and I just want to keep making good music and connect with my true fans.”
