Most Embarrassing Moment – AFRIMA 2017

And the winner of the most embarrassing moment of the night goes to Seyi Shay. Seyi Shay who was performing her hit track Yolo Yolo barefooted was unfortunate to have stepped on the long extension from her outfit which swept her off her feet.

The good thing is she quickly picked up herself and went back into the performance, kudos to the star for holding herself together regardless of the mishap.
