Nigeria killed many dreams, says singer Simi
Soul diva, Simisola Kosoko, known as Simi, has lamented the current state of the nation and its effect on average Nigerians, especially the youth.
Simi is very angry with the Nigerian leadership and took to his Twitter page to express his displeasure.
The talented singer, who was a philosopher, said the fuel shortage and the ASUU strike were killing the dreams of many young people.
Simi wrote; “I think the most dangerous thing about Nigeria is that it has killed too many dreams. All the things we will never see because the nation is not conducive enough for the average person to dream and build.
“For every person who is living their dreams, there are thousands who are just trying not to die. It’s a hard truth, but it’s the truth.
“You can’t just say ‘Chase your dreams’ – when people take courses they’ve settled for and then spend 8 years taking a four-year course, because of the strike.
“You can’t just say ‘if you can think it, you can do it’ – when the capital you’re supposed to use to buy a product has become fuel money. You can’t just say ‘Raise- you and make it happen” spending half your adult life in mindless traffic on bad roads to get to a job you hate.
“You can’t just say ‘Take a chance’ when people who are just trying to get by are being kidnapped and killed in broad daylight.
“I want our leaders to really sit down and think about how their choices not only affect the economy and other obvious sectors of the country, but also how it destroys our potential for a great future.
“The ripple effect of wickedness runs deep. And when this generation of leaders is finally old enough to leave us alone, hopefully it won’t be too late.”
