      nene dear; i heard amber rose drew all the attention on the red carpet. She couldn’t face the reality. It is high time this our local based stars realized that; we made them who they are and we can also pull them down. Claim to fame; failed US returnee.

      February 4, 2015 at 3:35 pm

      Lol, It’s UK. And because of that fact, I was going to say she possibly doesn’t know Amber Rose as folks out there are less interested in pop culture compared to the US.
      However, just watched the red carpet interview and her response does not flow.
      It wasn’t about her not knowing Amber Rose. She was like “oh she’s married? oh was?”
      Lol, Such an obvious of “feigning ignorance” act

    Bye Girl. stop dissing people that are way better than you in all round. You dissed Bey in one of your interviews back in the days, that she is really short That is how i even know that you exist in Nigeria music industry. Work hard to put out one hit single in Nigeria or go back from your base and stop struggling in Naija mkt.

    Are you a fan of Amber Rose? You would just have answered she’s pretty or i’m looking forward to what she came to do. All this is so unnecessary and frankly reeks of bitterness. Thats how she shaded Tiwa Savage few months ago. She should learn how to talk or shut up.

    Dear Seyi Shay
    To rise to the top of your career, I guess you will need the humility of Tuface Idibia, The cerebral mind of Banky W, The talent and mix of love +beef of Tiwa Savage and finally the grace and Cavour of God
    Quit being shallow and prideful!
    All the best!

    On a red carpet interview? That comment was uncalled for! U think you have already made it? keep dissing people and watch yourself become more insignificant.

  20. Mz Socially Awkward...

    February 4, 2015 at 11:42 am

    Silly, half-assed “apology”. Go back home and try again. Also, nobody cares about your so-called research – the issue was your childish jabs that were completely uncalled for.

    You want to be b*tch? Try harder. Don’t turn up one day talking about industry females respecting other females with a goal to empowering the sex and turn around the next to expose your innate cattiness. Balls, honey, that’s what you need to descend to that level of b*tchiness which can’t be arsed if people like you or not – girls like Rihanna aren’t out there for “likes”.

    Keep the apology if the aim was to be as bitchy as possible in that interview. If it wasn’t and you’re trying to redeem whatever image you feel compelled to save, apologise like a classy dame. And we know you read all this sh*t on social media, which probably inspired that tweeted mess. Pick a side and stick with it – girl who wants to be liked or girl who wants to do her and just be that straight-up “B”.

    February 4, 2015 at 12:27 pm

    Okay, i’ve been following this discussion and here’s what i don’t understand: When DBanj said he was bringing Amber Rose, i read on this same Bella Naija how the lady is a stripper (i didn’t even know that until i read the comments here), does really nothing for a living and questions as to how DBanj would choose her for his show out of all the possibilities out there. Then comes Seyi Shay giving her own personal opinion (which she is entitled to, and which did not carry insults like most of what people said on the blogs), and all of a sudden, she is being crucified??? I don’t get it ohhh…….

    • nwanyi na aga aga

      February 4, 2015 at 12:35 pm

      My dear I dont get it!!!! This topic is killing me and Seyi you are annoying me too, why will you apologize for not knowing someone?!!!! Are you mad? Why allow fake ass people bully you into what you dont know? Biko channel your energy elsewhere, You dont know what Amber Rose does is it a crime? you are not a fan is it a crime? Women bring bitterness into everything, ok wait does Amber Rose know who Seyi is? Will Alakija know Amber Rose? people will not know everybody in this earth and what they do, they might just know they are famous for something. So when has that become a crime? Some people here do not know the name of their village yet they know Amber Rose and her history when did it become a crime? Hian!!! This topic is shaa vexing me.

    • Omo1

      February 4, 2015 at 1:22 pm

      My dear, I am not supporting either one. an don’t care if Amber does stripping for a living nor how stupid Seyi might appear for apologizing. But I like to be realistic.

      Common! WE ALL KNOW that Seyi knows who Amber is.” Are you a fan of Amber?” A simple no will do! Why go further in asking what or who she is when you know, that you know! Even foolishly going further to say..”but Kim has a reality show and owns a clothing line”.. It is clearly putting someone else down!

      She could have used much tact and discretion in her response. No she doesn’t have to like Amber, but she also didn’t have to show the world some sort of bitterness. That is very uncultured,.

    • Deee

      February 4, 2015 at 1:41 pm

      Only thing wrong with your argument is that we all know she knows Amber Rose. If she doesn’t fancy her she didn’t have to talk like a pant. Talking people down does nothing for you, be kind, be polite

      Can you imagine, in the end Nigerians truly love the US stars more over their own, even when they in fact are just basic strippers who dated a hip hop star. If our Nigerian stars were doing the same and making lots of money, there will be war.

    Instead of Seyi to go and find a solution to her perpetually horrid hair and clothing styles she’s here trying to throw shade like a diva! Ma’am aint nobody checking for you. Please leave the shade throwing to those who do it in their sleep (like Phaedra on RHOA. God i love that woman) and go and worry about your mediocre album sales. Side bar: Mide’s mane should really consider pulling this chit as their “Ambassador”, she does not represent at all.

  34. Friday's Other Child

    February 4, 2015 at 1:48 pm

    Seyi Shay asked a legitimate question, and having read through most of the responses, I still cant discern anything tangible that Amber Rose has done that legitimises the celebrity status that she now has – not in the traditional sense anyway. There are thousands of women who have been strippers and appeared in music videos. I’m sure many of them are now living very ordinary lives, some might even now be living in obscurity, or near so.

    What sets these people apart from Amber Rose? I think the answer to that is also the answer to Seyi’s question; whether Seyi likes her tactics or not, thinks she has any discernible talent or not, Amber and the team around her are expert marketers; her core product is her body (which has allowed her to create a brand for herself), the popularity she has now gained because of how she has positioned/placed herself, allows her to demand a premium price for the use of the brand she’s created.

    I can understand the sentiments that may have led to Seyi’s question, but the big lesson to learn from Amber and the likes is in brand building and positioning. Closer to home Toke Makinwa is a very good example of this; regardless of what walk of life you are in; you will do well to understand how to position yourself, cultivate a brand in the process, make it relevant and indispensable and charge accordingly for its use.

    As for the question about marriage; that one was pure shadiness sha!

    • Friday's Other Child

      February 4, 2015 at 3:36 pm

      Calm down, I understand that she is an on air personality, but she has very successfully positioned herself beyond that and has and is continuing to build a brand for herself. What facts have I gotten wrong? Or do you see every OAP bagging the type of endorsement deals that Toke does, or with the same notoriety? What I am likening is their understanding of brand building and their ability to leverage and monetise it. As I wrote ‘regardless of what walk of life you are in’ there is a lesson to be learnt there. These guys are in showbiz, but the same rule applies in other industries, a professional who knows how to set themselves apart (based on talent that others recognise/appreciate, or not) and creates a superior brand for themselves will simply be able to command more for whatever service they provide.

      Seyi herself implicitly recognises this as I recall once reading an interview of hers where she said she said something to the effects of she left her record label because they weren’t doing a good enough job of branding her.

    I like the answer. I think what’s happening is she’s being literal and the hearers are being complicated in their interpretation of things. I think SS is pretty direct, I like that.

    I haven’t bothered to learn much more about the what she (Amber) does, seen enough from the comments section, but wish her well.

    – loving her way since 201x

      YAAAS!. I love it too. Make no mistake, that wasnt an apology and she owes yall none. Chick said she doesnt know what amber does or why she should be a fan and now she does and im sure she still aint buying it. So lets all move on. Hahaha. Mehn, i love her. Dont let anyone bully you into accepting what you dont like…
      @omo1, i totally respect your comment. A simple no will do but i wont crucify her cos she dared to ask why she should be a fan. Why are we such hypocrites?. Seyi asked the same question most of yall ask in your sitting rooms. I love me some amber but i am no fool. Like friday said, its all marketing.
      Im in my mid twenties but there is nothing as refreshing as being around older ppl. They tell you what you NEED to hear and dont feel the need to”respect” every nonsense being thrown at them. Not like my mates that would tickle your eyes only to stab you in the back while the honest ones are afraid of being labelled a “hater”, “bitter”, or “a bitch”.. The same ppl bashing seyi today would turn around and call amber a slut tomorrow. lol. Lets be truthful here and forget seyi for a second. How many of you really view amber as respectable?. How many of you look up to her or want your daughters to be like her?. I understand the bible’s message to love thy neighbor but there is no law that says you have to respect or accept everything that a person does. And who says we cant question something publicly anymore? She cant have an opinion cos is also in the entertainment industry?. Please stop already. Its not that serious. There are better ppl to look up to and there are better ppl to invest in. Yes i love amber. i think she is sweet but i also know what she represents…

    Shame on you people, i wish thats all i can say , I don’t like to judge people , you guys are just as quilty as Seyi.
    The world is so different ,class is extinct .
    I was bothered by the fact that Kim came to Nigeria to host an event and that was a super buzz worthy event , i have nothing against Kim but i don’t think i would want to use a sex tape to gain popularity , go full naked nipples and veegay showing to break the internet especially as i am a mother and wife, thats her life it works for her.

    Now i heard Amber Rose was coming to Nigeria , not a big deal as it was mentioned she is DBanjs friend , remember she dated Kanye and DBanj was/is attached to his label. blabla .

    I don’t care if she was a stripper to each their own ,however when did we last celebrate an intellect? we probably don’t know the name of any of last years nobel laurate .

    Does it even make sense , this education? with reality tv et al , thank God yes if not with the number of leading ladies and supermodel George Clooney has been with , he would have been blind not to know Amal was a different kettle of fish. Why is Kim so stalking , yes stalking the dutchess of Cambridge , she knows class is class and trash is what it is , and intrestingly it has nothing to do with your Bank Account.

    per Seyi, she should learn to be a lady, you cant publicly diss anyone , its classless , learn from ladies like Omowunmi Akinnifesi , she would never have said that , i hope i am right though.

    Anyway , to end my epistle , most of you too should learn to be civil in your discussion , calling names and rude jabs are also trashy .

    I think someone should have words with the presenter as when she was asked what Amber Rose did she didn’t know either. Its her job to know not Seyi’s.

    Na wah oh!! So exactly since when did it become an offence NOT to know a stripper ?? And how many of you here know strippers in Ojuelegba or major night clubs in Lagos. Must Seyi Shay know Amber?? You people are the real hypocrites not Seyi. The first thing that came to mind when I heard about Amber coming to Nigeria was STRIPPER and i am sure same for most of you commentators here too. What’s dignifying about that??? Pls leave Seyi alone she was only bold to say what most of you are too hypocritical to say. Pls!!!!

      You’re missing the point of a lot of people’s ire (including mine). We don’t endorse what Amber does to make her daily living but it was unnecessary for this one up here to be so emphatically trying to put her down. Let’s not pretend the interview questions were answered in real innocence because that façade was spider-web flimsy.

      I hate to see the spewing of bile for no reason. And here’s what’s hypocritical – Seyi having moral objections to a stripper/video vixen’s presence when Seyi’s own videos are in the same target market of selling sex. Do you see some cause for annoyance, now? People like Kim and Amber (as well as others) have very sadly become the new media standard for young women but our own celebrities have also become very, very adaptable to the new normal and sharply grabbed that standard for themselves.

      To be honest, this whole episode has left me with a recollection of Isio’s Tuesday banter topic of yesterday, where she asked why bad girls stay winning. Good girls may have better morals but sometimes it comes with the stankest of attitudes, while that questionable “runs” girl with regrettable choices in her past, might have the larger heart and more human emotions.

      And who told you that Sheyi is good girl . Or doesn’t she commit adultery/fornication till date? All of them are the same working in the same industry. So for her to open her mouth and say she doesn’t know her superior is a big mess!

      Amber ìs not only a stripper.
      She is also a Model, Singer, & Designer unlike Seyi that is just an unsuccessful singer. MTCHEW!!! FAKE IDIOTIC LOOSER!

      Am wondering if your comment would have been the same if Amber was Nigerian or someone in Africa. Truth be told we are supporting wrongly… Seyi Shay has not gone naked or slept with celeb to make it. Yet you guys judge her. Amber can do what she likes. The point is from the presenters question is “Are you excited about Amber being here”. If she said yes. You will still criticize her for relating with a stripper. She was being political. Give her a break abeg

    Am really shocked by most comments on this issue and feel most people have been bitten by the “am popular buzz”. Honestly Seyi Shay with her career so far has achieved positively Amber Rose has not. Did she have to sleep with popular people to be famous? No. Has she tweaked and dressed almost naked to be famous? No. Dbanj brought a stripper to town and people celebrated her. No one celebrates people doing the real hard, honest work. I think thats her point.

    No doubt that Seyi should have responded to the (stupid) question with more tact but goodness, look at all the bile gushing from the comments. The hypocrisy is overwhelming!!!! Nigerians know how to point fingers, harshly criticize and try to sound intelligent with abuses….when most are guilty of the same damn things. Judging from the comments, no one struggles with an attitude problem, judging another, jealousy, shade throwing, self-righteousness etc???? Mcheww!!! Seyi/Amber are who they are…end of!

    81 comments and counting, all on top of this Amber Rose matter – I was not aware that she is that important to us in Naija. Kini big deal? that people are getting so emotional over this matter first thing in the morning? hm ok o, life must not be that challenging for you. I do not see anything wrong with Seyi’s response and honestly wish more of these people in the public eye would be their true selves. They ought to be allowed to speak in true form when interviewed instead of this politically correct, conformist, measured and tactfully targeted fake depiction of their personality, belief systems etc which only serve a certain public perception all thanks to this paradox that we call “branding”. This reminds me of the backlash Scott Rudin received when Sony’s emails were hacked last year revealing his true opinion of Angelina Jolie’s art as being “minimally talented”, as expected Scott had to render apologies for having an opinion in the free world. – All hogwash if you ask me, the whole entertainment industry is a farce and unfortunately the general public keep falling prey to the point of hyperventilating over such trivialities first thing in the morning.

    Everybody reserves the right to say wot they want. But defaming other people is wrong on all levels….. It’s as simple as going to Wikipedia to find out what the woman does instead of embarrassing yourself as a celeb on national tv.
