Nigerian Idol: Twitter reacts over Seyi Shay’s ‘battering’ remarks on 17year old contestant

‘You’re not a singer’ – Seyi Shay

Nigerian singer Seyi Shay has sparked mixed reactions on social media following her comment to a 17-year-old boy who auditioned for the current season of Nigerian Idol.

Seyi who is presently being tagged as the bluntest Judge in the ongoing season of the show has Obi Asoka and DJ Sosa’s as co-judges but was not impressed by the young man’s attempt at singing and she made no effort in sugar-coating her feedback.

The Irawo crooner told the young man that someone close must have lied to him by advising him to try out the audition.

Seyi said to the boy:

“That person, you should go back and tell them that they are not your friend.”

However, that was not all. Seyi while hiding under the guise of ‘tough love’ noted that he would never make money as a singer.

In her words:

“I love you, you are so sweet but you are not a singer.”

If it was any consolation, the judge told the young man that he has a good talking voice.

Seyi Shay comments has fetched her backlash from tweeps:
