Popular Nigerian singer Simisola Bolatito Kosoko, better known as Simi, has called out African politicians and describing them as “greedy bellies” who can’t build their own countries but prefer to travel abroad.
The singer via her Twitter page on Wednesday said africans fight for space and survival everywhere they go because their African leaders only care about their “greedy bellies.”
The singer said the selfishness of the leaders is reflected in the poor social and economic development of the people of the continent, adding nobody would prefer a stranger’s land over their home country if life is made easy for them.
In a Twitter thread, she wrote, “Black Africans have to fight and fight for space and respect and survival everywhere they go because the one place that is their birthright is hard on their lives. One would think this would make African leaders wake tf up and help us fight for our dignity.
“Who really wants to go land of strangers, away from everyone and the things they love? People that want to survive. Nobody chooses that life because it’s good or easy. They just don’t want to die feeling that helpless.
“But these leaders don’t love their country. They don’t love their people. They only love their greedy bellies. They only care about their own children. They only care about their families. As long as their wickedness is not happening to them, why stop?.”
