“Seyi Shay should not have said that the boy would never make it in music. She should have encouraged him to continue working on his vocal training and return for another audition.”
Also, popular social media doctor @aproko_doctor expresses his opinion;
“Seyi Shay should have tried the sandwich approach Praise first Criticize Praise them again That’s how to give feedback Eg: nice voice, I think your performance could be better if trained, once again, nice voice. How you say a thing matters also.”
@Bagofnuts_ wrote; “I don’t get why you people are angry tbh, Seyi Shay was merely speaking from experience. She probably knows a thing or two about not making it as a singer.”
