Seyi Shay steps out in a Naked Dress and everyone is asking for her “shimmy”

We love how award-winning singer, Seyi Shay is never afraid to take fashion risks but when you belong in this part of the world, getting away with daring outfits may be tougher than necessary.

When Seyi Shay stepped out for dinner in New York wearing a see-through dress that showed off a major portion of her assets, she may have felt safe thinking she’s out of the sight of African parents who are wont to scream “FUNKEEEEE” when they sight “inappropriate” fashion.

One last look at the dress!
