Nigerian singer, Simi, has expressed her thoughts on a viral video featuring a female preacher who advised single women against wearing their natural hair in order to attract potential partners.
Simi found the sermon offensive and believed that it promoted self-hatred, despite the preacher's intention to provide "good advice." She shared her opinion on her X page on Tuesday.
In her words, “Even when you hide self hate inside ‘good advice’, it’s still self hate."
"This is why 90% of skincare products in countries full of beautiful dark skin girls/women are ‘whitening creams’.”
“And girls are told that the hair that grows out of their hair is not special enough. It’s not that you’re not good enough, it’s that they said you’re not good enough. She’s on the pulpit too. A role model. Lol. Wetin God no send una, na hin una like to dey do.”
