Seyi Shay finally breaks silence after her butt photos went viral early in December.
In case you missed the gist: the top female singer stepped out for a dinner with her friend in New York, dress in a sheer black dress that put her cute behind on display.
The pictures had stirred major reactions on social media. While some fans had nice things to say, some prudes dragged her endlessly.
Now, she has spoken up in a new interview with
Punch, making it clear that she would never have dared such in Nigeria, plus she also spoke on her routine workout, and how much her butt has grown since she began to squat.
“I wore that dress in New York. I dare not wear such in Nigeria. New York is one of the most fashion inclined cities in the world.
The dress was made by Sokayna who is a crème de la crème designer in the world.
He is Senegalese but he is doing very well for himself. Recently, Rihanna, Madonna and even Nicki Minaj, wore the same jacket I got from him.
They all shop from him so it was an honour and a privilege to wear his piece.
Why would I say no to such an offer? Even if the dress were a string, I would have still worn it.
Also, if I had worn anything underneath the dress, it would have spoilt the design, it was not designed for anything to be worn underneath it.
I did not get this big bum through injections or surgery. If I did not do surgery on my boobs, is it my backside I would then operate on? Someone advised me to be doing squats.
Till now, I spend most of my time in the gym.
Having big buttocks was one of the good things that happened to me this year.
I do 100 squats in the morning, in the afternoon I do 50 and then at night, I do another 100. It hurts a lot but it is worth it; I would not lie about that, the pain is worth it.
“I have been getting a lot of compliments since my backside added. I wanted to do a boob job but I changed my mind and the reason is that I realised that I could fit into almost anything especially sample sizes from designers.
One of the things that Sokayna complimented me for when I was in New York was my body.
He said that his clothes were not specifically made for African bodies but I have an extraordinary body and I would be ‘finished’ if I did a boob job.
Everything fits, so I am happy with what God gave me.”
