Popular Nigerian TV show host, Frank Edoho, has slammed the judges on the music reality TV show, Nigerian Idol, describing them as “trash.”
His comment followed the criticism received by a 17-year-old singer from music artist, Seyi Shay, who is one of the judges at the show’s audition.
Seyi Shay, while reviewing the singer’s performance during the audition, described it as terrible, saying he’s “never going to make money being a singer.”
According to her, “I am laughing because I can’t just believe what I just heard. Who told you to come (to) the show’s audition? You should go back and tell them they’re not your friends. That was not a good one. You have a sweet, token voice but your performance is terrible. You’re never going to make money being a singer.”
Her review of the singer’s performance forced reactions from Nigerians with many describing it as harsh.
Edoho, in an apparent reaction on Twitter, said, “I think the judges of Nigerian Idol should be calming down. They are a tad harsh. #nigerianidol.”
