2. Nigerian singer Seyi Shay gets dragged for harsh criticism on Nigerian Idol
Nigerian Twitter has slammed popular singer Seyi Shay over her harsh verdict on a young singer at this year’s audition of the television reality show Nigerian Idol. Seyi Shay, whose real name is Deborah Oluwaseyi Joshua, was a judge on the reality television show on Sunday.
Seyi Shay had told the singer, “Somebody lied to you and told you to come and audition, and that person, you should go back and tell them they’re not your friends because that was not good audition. Oh, you have a good talking voice, and it comes out in your singing voice, but your performance, terrible. You’re never going to make money being a singer.”
After the singer’s comment, many people on Twitter attacked her, saying the comment was uncalled for. Amidst the attack on the singer, some people believed she passed the right judgement.
3. South Africa: Busiswa calls out Fenty Beauty for using a remake of her song for advert
South African singer Busiswa isn’t happy about the music used for the latest Fenty Beauty Skin Tint advertisement. In the advert, Fenty Beauty owner Rihanna is seen showcasing their newest release, Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint, which comes in 25 shades. The music used in the video caught South African social media users’ attention, as it has a striking similarity to “Midnight Starring” produced by DJ Maphorisa, DJ Tira, Rude Boyz, Distruction Boyz, and features Busisiwa and Moonchild Sanelly.
The singer said on Twitter: “Nah. @fentybeauty just used a REMAKE of Midnight Starring with my voice, to avoid paying us for it. I’m sad, but it’s the game, I guess.” Fans came out in support of Busiswa, with many voicing their displeasure at the Fenty Beauty brand remaking the song instead of going through the right channels to use the original song.
4. Ghana: KiDi wins Artiste of the Year at the 2021 3Music Awards
