Seyi Shay who wore a dress that barely covered her buttocks finally denies that she was dressed in that manner in an attempt to seduce the president of Nigeria.

Last week, on March 1, 2015, celebrities gathered at Eko Hotel to meet with President Jonathan and Seyi Shay was present.

The ‘crazy’ singer got tongues wagging with the skimpy dress that she wore to meet GEJ which revealed way too much. It even became a huge joke, saying Seyi was attempting to seduce the president.

She finally made a statement in an interview with Punch on March 7, 2015 saying:

"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"
