Simisola Ogunleye, a singer and songwriter popularly known as Simi, has said the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has humbled persons Nigerians respect as “superstar” celebrities.
Speaking on the impact of the pandemic in a series of Twitter posts on Friday, the “Joromi” crooner said the virus as shown that showbiz entertainment can be a flash in the pan, especially when more important situations concerning life occur with little or no indication.
“One second you have all these grand plans; the next, life is running circles around you. I feel like life is telling all of humanity, collectively “you ain’t shit.” Everybody’s priority is different now. Your goals are diff now. The point to life has shifted now. Fascinating!
“When we get on the other side of this thing, I wonder if we will have learnt anything. Cos people forget,” Simi tweeted.
Noting that while the pandemic occurrence is not the end of the world, Simi, however, explained that the current situation should prompt all individuals to reassess their priorities of life and learn to be humble.
The wife of the popular soul singer, Adekunle Gold, however, did not state if she was referring to any of her colleague musicians or disclose anyone’s name.
“Even your superstars seem more ordinary now. Lol. Showbiz is less showy when tomorrow is standing on a cliff. This should humble the fuck out of everyone.
“This is likely not the end of the world; but for those of us here to witness it, it should be the beginning of a reset of perspective, essence, mindset. Cos las las we ain’t shit. We’re just here to be the most that we can be while the universe allows it,” she tweeted.
