Singer, Seyi Shay, was severely criticised for the skimpy dress she met President Goodluck Jonathan with at a youth event last week.
Photos showed her sitting beside the president in incredibly short outfit causing many to suggest that she was trying to seduce the president.
But reacting to the barrage of criticisms, the singer told Punch that she is a respectable lady and was not planning to seduce the president in any way.
“I am a very respectable young lady and I was not in any way trying to seduce the President with the outfit I wore. I had two outfits for the event, one was for my performance and the other was worn after I performed. The dress I was pictured in with the President was what I wore during my performance.
“I came on stage and greeted everyone according to their culture and I did the same for Mr. President. He was impressed and he asked where and how I knew how to greet in his native dialect and I said I learnt it. That was what brought about the giggling and smiles in the picture. I’m a performer and what I do on stage doesn’t reflect my everyday life. I had two outfits on that day and it was a youth event. Who wouldn’t feel overwhelmed meeting the President? Well, I did and I felt honoured because it is not every day you get to meet the president of your country”
Seyi said her fans should expect her much anticipated album at the last quarter of the year.
“I am busy working on my album and it would be out by the last quarter of the year. I promise not to disappoint my fans. I would deliver because I love you all,” she said.
