I am not your friend, Tiwa Savage tells Seyi Shay as they clash at Lagos salon


The quiet fight between two female music stars, Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay was brought to the public today as they were both involved in a fight at a salon in Lagos State.

The duo have been at loggerheads over the years as no one could tell what could have led to the cold war that has kept them from seeing each other or working together on any musical project.

In a video that has since gone viral on social media platforms, especially Instagram, it was learnt that trouble started today when they both met at a salon and engaged in what would have resulted into a brawl if they were not pulled apart.

Tribuneonline learnt that Seyi Shay had walked up to Savge at the salon to greet the singer, but Savage refused to exchange pleasantry with Seyi, saying that Seyi Shay had no moral justification to say hello to her.

Savage alleged that Seyi Shay and another female rapper were said to have dissed Savage in their separate cover to one of Kizz Daniel’s song in 2019.

Livid Tiwa had said she would not respond to either of Seyi or Kimani even if they had attempted to drag her name through the mud with the songs they released on social media platforms two years back.

The heated argument between Tiwa and Shay took a turn for the worse as they both moved towards each other to attack themselves physically but those who were at the scene were quick to get in between them to calm frayed nerves.

Savage who said she would not have anything to do with Seyi Shay during the shouting session said ” Don’t come to me to think you can say hi with the dirty and disgusting spirit that you have. You think I have forgotten what what you guys did? How many years ago? You and Victoria Kimani. You think I can forget?

Seyi Shay who tried to explain to Savage said she didn’t expect Savage to react to her gesture in such manner, “The only reason I greeted you is to try to and squash all that is going on and to say sorry. I am  not going to listen to this because you got your facts wrong.”

In her response, Savage said” You said bad things about me during your interviews and did a whole song to shade me but I didn’t say anything. I have never slept with your man and never taken your job. I have never gone on radio to say shit. You don’t just come to me and say hi to take all of that away. If I have an issue, I don’t just walk up to you and say hi. No,” she lamented.
