Music star Deborah Oluwaseyi Joshua, popularly known as Seyi Shay recently got her fans and the media buzzing after dressing in a transparent outfit to an event in New York.
Clad in a sheer dress called the “Coco” made by a NY-Based Senegalese designer, the singer left little to the imagination. The dress featured ink silk fringes braided into black honeycomb mesh with black lace and crystal embroidery.
It also was obvious Seyi wasn’t wearing panties under the daring outfit and many were surprised that the singer could wear such in public.
The outfit also drew speculations that the singer who used to be known for her very flat backside had gone under the knife to add some flesh to that part of her body.
However, in an interview with the Punch, Seyi Shay explained that she was so proud and comfortable wearing the outfit and didn’t care about people’s opinion on the outfit. Hear her:
“I wore that dress in New York. I dare not wear such in Nigeria. New York is one of the most fashion inclined cities in the world. The dress was made by Sokayna who is a crème de la crème designer in the world. He is Senegalese but he is doing very well for himself. Recently, Rihanna, Madonna, and even Nicki Minaj, wore the same jacket I got from him. They all shop from him so it was an honor and a privilege to wear his piece. Why would I say no to such an offer? Even if the dress were a string, I would have still worn it. Also, if I had worn anything underneath the dress, it would have spoilt the design, it was not designed for anything to be worn underneath it.”
On speculations about cosmetic surgery on her backside, the singer admitted that having a bigger backside was one of the good things that happened to her this year. She further revealed that she almost went for a surgery to increase her boobs but later changed her mind. Her words:
“I did not get this big bum through injections or surgery. If I did not do surgery on my boobs, is it my backside I would then operate on? Someone advised me to be doing squats. Till now, I spend most of my time in the gym. Having big buttocks was one of the good things that happened to me this year. I do 100 squats in the morning, in the afternoon I do 50 and then at night, I do another 100. It hurts a lot but it is worth it; I would not lie about that, the pain is worth it.
“I have been getting a lot of compliments since my backside added. I wanted to do a boob job but I changed my mind and the reason is that I realized that I could fit into almost anything especially sample sizes from designers. One of the things that Sokayna complimented me for when I was in New York was my body. He said that his clothes were not specifically made for African bodies but I have an extraordinary body and I would be ‘finished’ if I did a boob job. Everything fits, so I am happy with what God gave me.”
