Nigerian songstress, Seyi Shay has come under fire on social media for making negative destiny changing comments about a contestant over his performance at the Nigerian Idol show auditions.
After the contestant performed his song, Seyi Shay rubbished his performance, and ‘cursed’ him saying that he is never going to make money from the profession as a singer goes into it.
In her words;
“You are never going to make money being a singer”
This comment did not go down with many people on social media and they have condemned him for making such statement instead of just saying yes or no to the singer who also has hopes of becoming a great musician someday.
