Nigerian Singer, Seyi Shay is in the news again for all the wrong reason, as she was blasted by Nigerians after she told a 17-year-old boy he will never make money from singing.
While giving her remark on the contestant’s performances during the live audition on the 29th of March, Seyi Shay made some comments that irked viewers of the Nigerian Idol show.
“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.
