KSolo tackles Seyi Shay over ‘harsh’ comments on Nigerian Idol

Music producer, Solomon Oyeniyi, aka KSolo, has lambasted singer, Seyi Shay, for harsh comments to a young singer at this year’s audition of the television reality show, Nigerian Idol.

Seyi Shay had told the singer, “Somebody lied to you and told you to come and audition, and that person, you should go back and tell them they’re not your friends because that was not good audition.

“Oh, you have a good talking voice, and it comes out in your singing voice, but your performance, terrible. You’re never going to make money being a singer.”

Her comments had sparked various diverse reactions on social media.

In an interview with Sunday Scoop, KSolo was of the view that Seyi Shay’s career and attitude to music needed evaluation.

He said, “On this Seyi Shay issue, I tweeted about it. I was upset. I don’t want to believe that there is nobody that cannot make money in the industry. I met Timaya after he went for the Street to Star talent hunt. If it was the Nigerian Idol Timaya went to, I am sure he would have been kicked out. A judge like Seyi Shay would have made him believe he could not do music.
“Imagine someone that her music needs evaluation evaluating another person. She is still a work in progress herself. The hypocrisy in the industry is so bad. There are people who have made ‘legends’, yet they are not on that seat. It is a slap on the music industry’s face. What she said was so bad.
