The “I Love You” hit maker took to social media to share her thoughts about “parenting” which has gained attention due to the girl child education.
“Many of our parents raised their girls and let the boys raise themselves. This is why lots of people think boys are easier to raise. If their boy’s fumble, they say “boys will be boys”. If the girl’s fumble, they say “she’s wayward or she wasn’t raised right. Hence, more effort is put into raising girls. She is taught to be a good wife, a good mom, prudent, enduring, faithful, perfect, or whatever society’s version of perfect is. Men are taught to make money and provide. The pressure to make good decisions is more intense for women. Men are usually able to make whatever choices or mistakes and to take risks because society will excuse them- because “boys will always be boys”. This is a privilege. I do think the tide is changing a little with our generation. More women are realizing that they are more than what society expects. I love it for us. Raise your boys well. Teach them to be good people. Raise your girls well, teach them to be strong and to be more. Everyone is equally capable of messing up or doing the right thing”.
Simi in recent times has been very vocal about girl child education. She is currently promoting her new single Sinner with her husband Adenkule Gold
