After so much backlash on Sheyi
Shay in the past week for her inappropriate outfit to the Meet The President
event which held last Saturday in Lagos, she finally reacts.
Seyi Shay told Punch, she had two outfits for
the events. She explained that the
purple sultry dress that went viral with lots of criticisms was for her
performance at the event. The singer who has remained in
the news for one issue or the other since the beginning of the year said
that she is a responsible lady and had no intention of seducing Mr President. The sensational music act also said President
Jonathan was impressed when she greeted him in his dialect. She further said she was overly
joyed on meeting the president. In her own words, Seyi Shay said, “I am a very respectable
young lady and I was not in any way trying to seduce the President with the
outfit I wore. I had two outfits for the event, one was for my performance and
the other was worn after I performed. The dress I was pictured in with the
President was what I wore during my performance. I came on stage and greeted
everyone according to their culture and I did the same for Mr. President. He
was impressed and he asked where and how I knew how to greet in his native dialect
and I said I learnt it. That was what brought about the giggling and smiles in
the picture. I’m a performer and what I do on stage doesn’t reflect my everyday
life. I had two outfits on that day and it was a youth event. Who wouldn’t feel
overwhelmed meeting the President? Well, I did and I felt honoured because it
is not every day you get to meet the president of your country,” At this, music diva Seyi Shay,
