Nigerian singer, Seyi Shay, has revealed her side of the story on what led to her saga with her fellow artiste, Tiwa Savage at a hair salon on Tuesday in Lagos.
Newsbreak had reported on Tuesday how both ladies engaged in a heated verbal war, exchanging words.
In an audio conversation with pulseNG, Seyi Shay said the saga started 20 minutes after she greeted Tiwa Savage at the hair salon.
According to Seyi, her decision to greet Tiwa was to calm the tension that arose as soon as she entered the salon and so many eyes were on both of them.
She also explained that she felt she and Tiwa had put aside their issues and were cool, having met on several occasions and exchanged pleasantries.
The ”Pempe crooner stated minutes after saying hi to Tiwa, the ”Koroba” crooner, came back and started screaming at her.
Seyi also stated that the misunderstanding between them was beyond her cover of the ‘F*** You’ challenge of Kizz Daniel’s song, where she dissed Tiwa in 2019.
“She’s definitely angry about something but it cannot be about this #F*ckYouChallenge. We’ve even entered private jet together and taken some pictures together,” Seyi said.
Seyi also claimed that Tiwa cursed her, saying that she would never have a child of her own.
She said: “I was confused on how a mother could swear on her son’s life. I was shocked to hear that. She was just so discomforted and was screaming.
“I asked her what caused her rage and she told me that I have a dirty spirit. But in my mind, I reasoned that it takes a dirty spirit to know another.
“People tried to calm her down but she was so angry that she was trying to attack me. I don’t know if it’s about the whole slander she’s been getting in the recent months, but that’s not my fault.
”The part I didn’t see in the video online is when Tiwa said: ‘Seyi, you’ll not have a child, God will not give you one because you have a bad spirit. I know you’re looking for a child’.
”I was really stunned to hear that. Her comment got to me because I have had a miscarriage before and I knew the kind of pain that I felt going through that. So, for another woman not only body shame you but tell you God will not give you a child, at that point, I knew she was really out for me and has nursed the anger for a long time, Who told her I’m looking for a child, is she stalking me?
”I didn’t utter a word to be sure she doesn’t have anything on me or say I attacked her lately. She easily said to me: ‘Seyi, don’t talk to me, I’m not your friend’. But she started raising her voice.”
In the audio call, Seyi said she had remained quiet all these years despite all that Tiwa had done to her, allegedly stealing her song, Lova Lova, one of her biggest songs ever, that she co-wrote with Ceeza Mill.
“This is the same person that took my song, ‘Lova Lova’ one of her biggest songs ever. I co-wrote that song, but when I called her that I co-wrote the song, she said she didn’t believe what I said and refused to give me my credit.
“She was the same person who attacked a popular artiste we all know because she featured on my song after he also featured on her own too. She also approached a popular brand to withdraw me as their ambassador. All these have been going on for years but I kept mute,” Seyi said.
Seyi went ahead to say that, the ‘F*** challenge’ diss song she had done was not enough, noting that she should have done for what Tiwa has allegedly done to her.
