In a recent interview with Saturday Punch, Seyi Shay was asked if there was an ongoing beef between her and Tiwa Savage following an instagram post of hers which raised a lot of suspicion.
The post's caption read "I compete with NO ONE. You heard me girl, YES YOU. Good evening. #carryon”....which she said was in reference to no particular person.
Answering the question posed to her about what may be going on between her and Tiwa, Seyi in turn replied "Please I would love it if you call her now and ask her this same question if there is any beef between Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay.”
She went on further to say "There is a quote that says that a competitive mind is not a creative mind and it is something I believe in. Girls compete against one another a lot and it is too much. Everybody competes but I think females do it a lot for no reason at all. If you are too busy competing, you will not have time to be creative. The post on Instagram was not directed to anybody, I was just minding my business but people took it the wrong way. I am aware that some people thought I was directing it at Tiwa Savage but I was not. After I had posted it, I told myself that I hope people would not think it was directed at anybody but I didn’t care that much; so I just left it.
I read what she said about me but to be honest, when I post comments online, I am very sarcastic. People should be very careful when they listen to me speak and give answers because you will never know if I am serious or not. I play with Nigerians so much and that is because I think they are so gullible and I think it is funny. I did not feel any way about the comment she made about me. They ignore me, I ignore them,”
All this comes after Tiwa's interview with UrbanFM was released where instead of acknowledging Seyi Shay as a fellow Pepsi ambassador, she rather threw shade and talked about how much she loves Davido and how she's happy for him. LOL!!
Seyi was upset by what she said and expressed it on Instagram which led to people reminding her of the interview she had with Ebuka where she said she didn't know Tiwa Savage personally.
Anyways she revealed she had just recorded a song with Niyola and was on tour promoting her new album 'Seyi or Shay'.
"I am very excited at the moment because I just recorded a very amazing song. I am happy because I have made a new song and I have a very good feeling about it. The song is with me and Niniola, I love working with women because I believe in girl-power. I just released an album called Seyi or Shay and I am going around Africa to promote the album. While I am promoting my album, I am also recording new songs especially when I meet amazing artistes from other African countries".... she said.
Do you think we may just see the Nigerian version of the cold war going on between Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez?
