Popular Nigerian host, Frank Edoho has fired back at judges of the Nigerian Idol, asking them to calm down and take it easy with contestants.
He made his statement in reaction to one of the judges, singer Seyi Shay’s criticism of a 17-year-old boy who had auditioned for the show.
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.”
