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.

Her Overnight Transformation!

RIP! Isoken will never forget the embarrassing sound of her shirt slitting involuntarily from the side, the look of horror on the faces of her colleagues, how her boss’s face dissolved into disdain. “Excuse me” she muttered and quickly left the conference room; her bulging tummy had shamed her once again. 

"I heard what happened” Precious came into her office, trying to keep a straight face. “I know you want to laugh, just laugh” Isoken was struggling with the girdle that had failed her. “Why would I laugh? I told you to stop buying weak stuff. It won’t solve your problem”Isoken ignored her friend. She was in no mood for lectures. Precious went on “I ordered a gift for you yesterday. It’s better than what you have on.”
