LAGOS, Nigeria — Nigeria’s top female artists Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay are on each other’s neck following a verbal brawl that ensued between them at a salon in Lagos.
Shay is said to have walked into the salon to get her hair done prior to her appearance at Idols, when she met Tiwa who was already in the premise for the same service.
According to Shay, tension in the building prompted her greet Tiwa who reciprocated while sharing fleeting glances at each other.
Tiwa would later spark their now infamous argument after she walked over to Shay around 20 minutes later.
In a video that went viral, Tiwa accuses Shay and Kenya’s singer Victoria Kimani of recording a diss song for her.
“Don’t come to me and think you can say ‘hi’ with a dirty and disgusting spirit that you have… you think I’ve forgotten what you and Victoria Kimani did to me some years ago, you think I can forget?” blasts Tiwa in the video.
Shay responded threatening to expose Tiwa for things only the two can tell. “Tiwa, what other things have you done… you want me to open up everything here? I’m not like you, I’m not going to do that.”
The ‘catfight’ continued with Tiwa daring her counterpart Shay to dare her threats. She also reminded her of the diss song adding that she (Tiwa) never said anything about the two.
“God should take my child if I’ve ever done or said anything about you or Victoria Kimani. I’m made, I have money and I have nothing to take from you. I have never taken a job from you.” Says Tiwa
“You did a whole song and went on interviews to say sh*t about me. Your nyash is the dirtiest in the industry.” She adds
Shay on her side said that Tiwa’s beef was not about the #FVckYouChallenge verse she recorded in 2019 since they have met a couple of times after the release and everything appeared to be okay.
“We’ve even entered private jets together, we’ve taken pictures together” says Shay adding that the before is way more than that.
