Simi stated, “I went to the passport office to get my passport done, and when I got to the gate, they informed me that I couldn’t enter because my outfit was deemed indecent.”

Perplexed by the situation, she examined her attire from top to bottom and questioned, “Can you see anything on my body that is indecent?” However, she received the response that nothing specific was visible but she needed to wear something more conservative.

To comply with the office’s regulations, the talented artist had to remove her nosering, earrings, and cover her chest with a small scarf. Adding an unexpected twist, Simi disclosed that she was even asked to sing for the officials.

Simi’s experience raises concerns about the subjective nature of dress codes and the need for clarity and consistency in enforcing them. The incident has sparked discussions regarding individual freedom of expression and the influence of societal expectations on personal style.

Simi’s candid sharing of the incident has garnered significant attention on social media platforms, with many expressing their support and emphasizing the importance of addressing such situations to promote inclusivity and fairness in public spaces.
