Following the recent clash between top Nigerian singers, Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay, Mimi’s blog has been able to dig up the root cause.
Although the fight happened yesterday, Tuesday 8th June, the dispute was born 2 years ago.
It started when Nigerian idol judge, Seyi Shay, did the cover for the song “Fvck You” by Kiss Daniel and took indirect swipes at Tiwa Savage.
In her exact lyrics on the cover, she said;
“You know I’m not savage, I pay my bills”, hinting at the fact that Tiwa is owing a club in Lagos who was about to publish its list of celebrities debtors.
In the case of Victoria Kimani, the Kenyan singer, she was dragged into the drama between Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay as she was also beefing Tiwa in 2019 and had also done her cover in the “Fvck You” song challenge, also throwing swipes at Tiwa but this time around, directly
She specifically said “Grandma African bad gyal, turning 45 and still claiming bad girl, you can block me from a show but can’t block my blessings” in her lyrics as she accused Tiwa of blocking her from performing in a show.
9jahotvibes Entertainment News was also able to dig up one of the interviews Seyi Shay honored where she claimed she wasn’t too familiar with Tiwa Savage.
BBNaija host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu who was the interviewer had asked her about her relationship with Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay said;
“I don’t really know her, soo”.
Her response surprised Ebuka because contrary to what Seyi said, she used to be close to Tiwa.
