‘I feel like Judge Judy’ – Seyi Shay replies Nigerians dragging her for telling a 17-year-old boy he can’t make it

Nigerian singer and Idol’s judge Seyi Shay has responded to the criticisms she received following a harsh comment she gave a 17-year-old who came to audition for the show.

Seyi Shay, 35, told the boy that he has no business being a singer and that he would never make money as a singer.

She told the boy:

“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.”

The statement earned the “Yolo Yolo” singer massive criticism on social media with many users telling her her comment was too harsh for a judge on a talent show.

Reacting to the criticisms, a seeming unperturbed Seyi Shay tweeted that she feels like “Judge Judy”.

She wrote:

“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.”
