Nigerian songstress and songwriter, Seyi Shay, trended on social media after lashing out at a 17-year-old boy during the Nigerian idol audition.
The ‘Irawo’ crooner gave a seemingly judgement on the Nigerian idol participant identified as Ayo Torrus.
Seyi, who happens to be one of the judges said, “Somebody lied to you and told you to come and audition, and that person, you should go back and tell them they’re not your friends because that was not good audition.
“Oh, you have a good talking voice, and it comes out in your singing voice, but your performance, terrible. You’re never going to make money being a singer.” she added.
The 17-year-old has now taken to social media to break his silence over the issue.
Quoting a tweet showing the video, he wrote, “his broke me Emotionally and Psychologically, but God got me !!”
This generated reactions from social media users who criticized the singer for making such comments on the teenager.
Meanwhile, Seyi Shay has responded to the dragging online by Nigerians. She wrote via her Twitter page, “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”
