"I didn't mean to turn Pres. Jonathan on with my short dress"-Seyi Shay

Singer Seyi Shay who was seriously criticised last weekend for the short dress she wore to sing and greet the President at the MeetThePresident Youth event in Lagos last Saturday has said that she had no intention of turning the president on with the dress. Many people asked what President Jonathan was hiding by crossing his legs and why he was smiling big. Seyi explains everything below... "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,” she told Punch. Meanwhile, that photo of Seyi Shay has been one of the subjects of #BabaWhileYouWereGone,an hilarious Twitter trend currently set up to update APC Presidential candidate Gen. Buhari on activities in the country while he was away in London. See one of the memes below...
