The 35-year-old said she felt the tension in the salon; and decided to walk over to say hi to Tiwa and they both exchanged pleasantries.
However; 20 minutes later, Seyi said Savage walked over to her and that was how the argument started.
Shay revealed she was shocked by the unexpected outburst stressed that Savage’s beef with her was not about the #FvckYouChallenge verse; she recorded in April 2019 as she confirmed that they have met each other more than twice since her #FvckYouChallenge and they exchanged pleasantries on all occasions.
“We’ve even entered private jet together; we’ve taken pictures together,” Seyi said.
Seyi Shay also noted that the part she did not see on the trending video is where Tiwa said in Yoruba; “Seyi you won’t have a child I heard you are looking for a child.
God will not give you a child because you have a bad spirit”.
Tiwa was; however, seen in the video swearing that God should take her own son Jamil Balogun if she ever talked bad about Seyi Shay in the media.
Seyi said she felt hurt; because Tiwa knew she had a miscarriage and used that to release the “venom” in her.
