Seyi Shay and Her Remark on “Nigerian Idol” — Here’s What She Has to Say About it

Published on

If you’ve been following the Twitter trends and are curious why singer/songwriter Seyi Shay is at the top of the chart, here’s a quick rundown.

Seyi Shay, as you might remember, is one of the judges on the popular ongoing talent show “Nigerian Idol.” 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

Many Nigerians have since taken to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the contestant’s performance as well as Seyi Shay’s decision.

With many taking to social media to encourage the young boy, some believe Seyi Shay was overly stern and should have approached her decision differently, whilst others believe she was merely acting as a judge, which often requires harsh criticism.

“I feel for the boy but my view about these things stay the same, harsh criticism is part of life & we all give & get it sometimes. He’ll be fine,” a Twitter user, @biolakazeem wrote.

Another user with the handle @aproko_doctor wrote, “Seyi Shay should have tried the sandwich approach Praise first Criticize Praise them again That’s how to give feedback Eg: nice voice, I think your performance could be better if trained, once again, nice voice. How you say a thing matters also.”

Here’s how everyone is reacting:
