Popular Nigerian singer Seyi Shay is currently trending on Twitter over her remarks on a contestant at the Nigeria Idol show.
Search for the next big star in the country has started on the show but Seyi Shay raised eyebrows during the live audition on the 29th of March when she commented on the performance of a 17-years-old singer
Reacting to the boy performance, Seyi Shay said;
“And I’m laughing at the fact that I can’t just believe what I just heard. Like who told you, just wait. Somebody lied to you, somebody told you to come here and audition. And that person should go back and tell them that they are not your friend. Because that was not a good audition
She went further and gave a verdict regarding the contestant’s musical career;
“You have a sweet-talking voice and it comes out in your singing voice but your performance terrible. You are never going to make money being a singer.”, she added.

This has speaker reactions from Nigerians who are currently dragging the singer.
According to some fans, Seyi Shay’s career in the music industry is not encouraging and those not have the right to criticize.
See some reactions below:
Seyi shay wey her career no last reach iPhone battery dey tell person say he no fit make am as singer
Solo told Wizkid he won’t blow – Starboy has gone on to be among the biggest musicians in the World. So if Seyi Shay told the 17-year old boy he won’t make money through singing – I hope he can use that as a motivation to prove doubters wrong by working hard to become a star.
For someone with a flopped music career you’ll expect Seyi Shay to be a lot more empathetic towards the contestants. Her criticism which wasn’t in any way objective Was so unnecessary
