Nigerian songstress, Simisola Ogunleye, popularly known as Simi has taken to his Twitter handle to lay claims that the reason why the government wants the social media bill to be passed is majorly for their interest and not for the entire nation.
National Sportslink understands that the 31-year-old singer cum actress made this comment on Thursday, December 12, while reacting to a tweet by Banky W, who made reference to human rights infringements in the country.
Banky W had said “There is a very obvious, blatant assault on free speech and the freedom of expression going on right before our eyes. When it comes to Human Rights in Nigeria.. there is nothing to celebrate, there’s just a whole lot of work to do. We must all do something”
Sharing a cut of Banky W’s status, Simi educated supporters of Minister of Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo who slammed social media activists who are against the controversial bill.
The ‘Joromi’ crooner tweeted “So for all the people in my mentions supporting Oga Keyamo the other day…when we say they do these things to serve themselves, not YOU – I hope you listen”
