Tiwa Savage, Seyi Shay Fight Dirty

,Seyi Shay,Tiwa Savage,,

On June 8, 2021, Nigerian superstar Tiwa Savage and fellow female artists Seyi Shay met each other at a hair salon. Seemingly, this was the first time Savage and Shay have said hi to each other since Kizz Daniel’s viral #FvckYouChallenge in 2019, during which Shay and Victoria Kimani seemed to take aim at African Bad Gyal. Eyewitnesses say that Shay went over to say hi to Ms. Savage, who rejected the pleasantries and chose the moment to air her grievances.

The video of them fighting was posted by Tunde Ednut via his Instagram page on Tuesday, the 8th of June 2021. In the video, Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay can be seen exchanging harsh words in what looks like a salon. Friends and workers in the area were trying to pacify both parties. Tiwa Savage's words to Seyi Shay were;

Don’t say hi to me ever. Let sleeping Dogs lie. Shey you blocked me on Instagram, block me in real life too. We are not friends

Read the convoy that ensued between the two female Afrobeat artist:

Savage: I’m quiet. I don’t want to respond properly, I don’t want to disgrace or embarass you. You or me because we grown, but don’t think you guys [you and Victoria Kimani] can do what you did…

ShayI’m not going to listen to this. You got your facts wrong…

Savage: Listen, don’t come to me and think you can say hi to me with the dirty and disgusting spirit that you have X2. You think I’ve forgotten what you and Victoria Kimani did how many years ago? You think I can forget?

Shay: Tiwa, what about the things you have done? I’m not like you, I’m not going to do that.

Savage: Open it

Then a ruckus ensues as the camera fails to capture footage. But it seems like both vixens were ready to go at each other, especially Tiwa Savage. The conversation resumes;

SavageIf you have the nerve, open it.

Shay: Open what? I’m not petty.

Savage: I’m petty. Open it!!! Open it [sounds like a physical confrontation] Shebi it’s you that said you wanted to open my nyash now. See open it!

Shay: I am not gonna do that.

Savage: Listen, on my son [Jamil]... On my child, [says that "I gave birth to” in Yoruba], I will never.. God should take my child if I have ever said anything about you or Victoria Kimani. Bitch I’m made, I have money, I have nothing to take from you. I’m not going to be hired for a show and…

Shay: You think that’s what it is, Tiwa?

Savage Interjects: I have never said anything else.

Shay resumes: If you wanna start acting up and acting like an agbaya right now. Carry on…

Savage interjects again: I have never taken a job from you, I have never gone on radio…

Shay: I only wanted to squash…

Savage: Don’t try and squash shit by saying hi, try and squash shit by calling me on the phone to discuss it... No ma nigga, you did a whole song. You and that bitch did a whole song; you and that bitch did a whole song. You went on interviews, you said shit, I didn’t say anything.

Shay: I went on interviews and said shit? Tiwa, let me not open your nyash here, please.

Savage: Open itttt! Your nyash is the dirtiest in this industry, you fucking whore. *Says in Yoruba* There’s nothing I’ve done in this world that I regret. There’s nothing, everybody knows I work hard for my shit. Look at you, you look half dead. You need to mind your business, to get a clearer skin.

[A chorus of “Whore!” ensues in the background]

The genesis of this drama...

In January 2019, Nigerian star, Kizz Daniel started a viral challenge tagged #FvckYouChallenge. The song it came with was a purge for Daniel, who addressed a cheating ex with some serious bouts of warranted slut shaming. The challenge was then propelled by other celebrities like Tiwa, Seyi Shay and Kimani. In her March 2019 song, Savage chronicled the affairs of a cheating ex whom she sent to Canada with her money. She also sang about how that ex who still owes Club Xscape - a Lagos nightclub - money for 50 bottles. At the time, many rumoured that shots on the song were aimed at her ex-husband, Tunji Balogun, but those claims were quickly dismissed.

The following month, Kenyan singer who was formerly signed to Chocolate City jumped on the challenge and rolled out disses for YCee and Tiwa Savage.

Her Tiwa Savage diss goes;

“Grandma African Bad Girl

The same month, Seyi Shay also took aim at Tiwa Savage with her verse;

You say you be my sister, but you wan collect my lover

You be deceiver, olofofo heart robber

Na why I no dey fuck you anymore

I no get time for you anymore

You know I’m not Savage, I dey pay my bills

You no go see my name for the Xscape

But [Prostitute] come be your hobby

Na so you come take first rate their hobby…

Like Kimani, Shay also appeared to take shots at Savage for allegedly trying to block other women in the industry.

She ended her verse with;

You see say, fuck you

Teni, fuck you

Simi, not you

[Inaudible], fuck you

Sade, fuck you

Funke, fuck you

Asa, fuck you

Acetune, fuck you
