As the mother of a girl child, as expected, Simi wouldn’t be one to let the BB Naija Housemate’s statements go unpunished.
The viral video of Big Brother Naija All Stars star Seyi claiming that his sons would “run trains” on someone’s daughter sparked a response from Nigerian musician Simi.
She furiously posted on Twitter, saying that the flatmate should be physically assaulted for making such dangerous and alarming remarks. She emphasized Seyi’s hypocrisy by saying that he is mentally devoid.
Her tweet read, “They need to actually hold this agbaya down and flog him until he forgets his last name. Also, “Not my daughter in Jesus’ name” is crazy. Imagine your skull wasting because nothing is inside.”

Also, “Not my daughter in Jesus name” is crazy. Imagine your skull wasting because nothing is inside.

In reaction to the widely shared footage of the contentious roommate, Simi tweeted that. Seyi was seen in the video discussing his troubling viewpoint with Whitemoney and Soma, two other male housemates.
He said to them, “I gave birth to a boy first and he will f**k your daughter. They go come meet me say, Daddy, I need the Benz. I’ll give them the Benz, I’ll give them the key to the guesthouse, they go go run train on people daughter. I’m giving birth to boys and they go dey f**k people daughter.”

In this concerning context, the term “run trains” describes a situation in which several men, either with or without consent, have sex with a lady one after the other.
Outrage erupted on social media after the video went viral, with people denouncing Seyi for his misogynistic remarks and implying that he has general respect for women. His remark was highly denounced even by the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA).
Since then, Seyi Awolowo’s team has released a press release stating that the videos were misrepresented and did not accurately depict his personality.
