Seyi Shay speaks on the controversial dress she wore to meet with GEJ, says I wasn't trying to seduce him

Singer Seyi Shay says she had no intention of seducing the president when she wore the short dress to sing and greet the President at the MeetThePresident Youth event in Lagos last Saturday.
"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,” she told Punch.

    Please Seyi Shay don't mind all those calling you out, you owe them no explanation. Personally I dont see anything wrong with her outfit that day, because she went for an event and not dinner with the president in aso rock or church event

    SHE IS VERY STUPID. PERIOD. WHETHER YOUTH RELATED OR OTHER, I BELIEVE THE PRESIDET BEING ANYWHERE IS A FORMAL EVENT. AND WHETHER FOR PERFORMANCE OR ATTENDANCE, YOU DO NOT WEAR A DRESS THAT SCREAMS OF "CLUB" OR STREET WALKER IN THE PRESENCE OF THE PRESIDENT AND HAVE THE NERVE TO COME AND TALK ABOUT IT AGAIN, YOU SHOULD HAVE LET IT SLIDE AND LEARN NOT MAKE AN ELABORATE SPEECH ABOUT DIALECT. FOOL. HIGHEST YOU SHOULD HAVE ADMITTED IN A MATURE WAY THAT IT WAS INNAPROPRIATE NOT THIS RUBBISH YOU ARE SAYING AND PERSONALLY, I THOUGHT ALL THAT SEDUCTION TALK WAS A JOKE SO YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE SAID ANYTHING TO GIVE IT CREDENCE IN ANYWAY...
