Seyi Shay who is one of the judges on the popular ongoing talent show “Nigerian Idol” has been trending over a comment she made. Several singers performed on the show, which is still in its audition process, including a 17-year-old contestant whose performance Seyi Shay did not seem satisfied with.
Reacting to the performance, Seyi who was laughing said, “I am laughing at the fact that I just can’t believe what I just heard.”
The performer responded that he was nervous, and Seyi Shay continued:
Somebody lied to you. Somebody told you to come here and audition. And that person, you should go back and tell them that they’re not your friend because that was not a good audition.
You have a sweet talking voice and it comes out in your singing voice. But your performance, terrible. You’re never going to make money being a singer. Thanks.
She ended her judgement by saying, “I love you, you’re so sweet but you’re not a singer. If it’s songwriting, hit me up, we’ll talk. But that singing thing, it’s not going to work.”
Here’s what she had to say after seeing the topic trend on Twitter:
I’m feeling like #JudgeJudy right now. You either LOVE her OR you HATE her, and that’s quite ALRIGHT! Either way, Thanks for the #1 trend tweeps
The 17-year-old boy, Ayo has finally reacted to the ruthless bashing he got from the singer cum judge. Ayo on his Twitter page wrote that the savage bashing by Seyi Shay left him emotionally and psychologically broken. But Ayo, however, wrote that God has got him and he won’t back down on his dream.
