Nigerian singers Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay got into a clash at a salon in Lagos. In the video of their fight, which surfaced on social media soon after, the duo was seen getting pulled apart as they nearly got physical at the salon. The singers were seen hurling allegations at each other.

The said fight started when Shay walked up to Tiwa at the salon to formally greet her, but Tiwa was not having it. According to Tiwa, Shay had no place to walk up to her to say 'hi', considering how she and Victoria Kimani had insulted her in the past. Tiwa said to her, "Don’t say hi to me ever. Let sleeping Dogs lie. Shey you blocked me on Instagram, block me in real life too. We are not friends."

The rivalry between Tiwa and Shay is not new for their fans. Back in 2014, in an interview with Punch, Shay had said that she doesn't consider Tiwa as her rival. "The reason I don’t see Tiwa as a rival is because I know who I am. I know that I’m very much a fun-loving person. I’m still the woman of the world that many people know. I really don’t care about the things that are not going to affect me in a positive way. If it’s not going to affect me in a positive way, I don’t focus on it or think about it." She added, "The difference is that I am deeper into the ragga stuff than she is. She portrays herself as somebody that is a cautious RnB artist, which she is. But I see myself as a commercial and carefree spirit. I don’t know her to that extent, so I can’t really speak about her."
