Nigerian singer, Seyi Shay, is currently being lambasted by social media users for her harsh words to a 17-year-old male contestant on musical talent show, Nigerian Idol.
After the young man’s performance, Seyi who is among the three judges, was unimpressed and told him he will do well as a songwriter, not a singer because he’s a ‘terrible’ performer.

”Somebody lied to you. Somebody told you to come here and audition. You should go back and tell them that they aren’t 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 is terrible.
You are never going to make money being a singer. I love you, you are so sweet but you are not a singer. You are not a singer. For songwriting, hit me up, we could talk but that singing, it is not going to work. Sorry Darling,” she said.

Seyi Shay has been the number trending topic on Twitter as some Nigerians felt she was harsh on the contestant while others said she was objective.
Checkout some reactions below..

The Seyi shay situation is typical of women in positions, especially when the recipient is of opposite gender. We witness it everyday.. in school, in offices. Everywhere

Seyi Shay should have tried the sandwich approach
Praise firstCriticizePraise 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.

I don’t get why you people are angry tbh, Seyi Shay was merely speaking from experience. She probably knows a thing or two about not making it as a singer.

Female artistes with actual singing talent, that woulda passed as music judges, but Nigerian Idols chose Seyi Shay who plays vixen in her own music videos. Sigh.
