The #MeetThePresident event has made headlines for several reasons since it was held at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos on Sunday, March 1, 2015.
Asides the political undertone of the event, several entertainment personalities were present at the rare occasion which saw President Goodluck Jonathan rub minds with over 5,000 young Nigerians.
One of such entertainment personalities was singer Seyi Shay, whose skimpy dress to the event has elicited several comments on social media platform, Twitter.
See the comments from Twitter users, occasioned by the photo above:

Seyi Shay will have mouth to slander Amber Rose but will dress like a nuisance to a meeting with the President. — Uche Briggs (@UcheBriggs) March 3, 2015
Seyi Shay is not to be blamed… I blame whoever let her in.

Now it’s about Seyi Shay’s dress…you people have issues: major ones. — Demola Olarewaju (@DemolaRewaju) March 3, 2015
We’re never going to have a policy debate on Nigerian twitter. Instead we’ll have a useless back & forth over Seyi Shay’s dress.
