Nigerian singer Simisola Kosoko, popularly known as Simi, has lent her voice to the ongoing anti-tax hike protests in Kenya.

Kenyan youths are marching against tax hike in widespread demonstrations tagged ‘RejectFinanceBill2024.’

Five people were shot dead and dozens wounded after police clashed with protesters who stormed the parliament building in Nairobi on Tuesday, according to Amnesty Kenya.

Reacting via her X handle on Tuesday night, Simi declared her support for the demonstrators.

She stated that “it is both powerful and heartbreaking for a people to have to fight and die for freedoms and rights.”

The singer wrote, “I stand with the people of Kenya. It is both powerful and heartbreaking for a people to have to fight and die for freedoms and rights. Godspeed and Strength. [Hash tag] RejectFinanceBill2024.”

In a series of other posts, she wrote: “Wow. When you’ve had enough, the fight is almost inevitable.

“African leaders – haven’t you done enough?

“I can’t wait for the day Africa is not a weapon fashioned against Africans. All of this amazing Black power and human resource, but the majority are not likely to thrive unless they run.”
