Nigerian Afropop sensation, Simi, took to her Instagram page to share an incident she encountered at a passport office in Lagos State, Nigeria.
In a video she posted, she recounted how she was denied entry into the official premises, with officials accusing her of indecent dressing.
They insisted that she needed to go back and dress appropriately, and also advised her to contact the person who was assisting her.
Immigration officers go humble you
According to her, despite one of their employees informing the officials that she was the music star Simi, the man at the entrance still insisted that she go back home to change her clothing before being allowed to enter.
Netizens reacted to her video with mixed opinions. Here are some of them:
malzzykabz: “The guy was right. He’s doing his job, no matter what. Try by all means to dress like a married woman who’s responsible to a lovely husband and a daughter. The dress you wore wasn’t bad, but dressing like that to a government office is not allowed even in some Africa gvoffices. No hard feelings ❤️.”
funboi_musicbox: “Key note: “You’re still going to be paid the same salary you were paid last month”. No too do.”
miss_schollie: “Immigration officers will humble you naso one tell one 70 something years old woman to answer him Yes sir .”
lizzylope_: “Lmao anything that has to do with government office, just put on your mary amaka attire, plus no lashes or colored hair. Sigh!”
