Seyi Shay joined fans across the world to celebrate the pregnancy announcement of international superstar Rihanna and ASAP Rocky. However, Seyi’s congratulatory message managed to draw unwanted attention from social media users who did not hesitate to clamp down on her.
Empire earlier reported that Rihanna, 33, is expecting her first child with her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky.
The couple was photographed out in New York City over the weekend, where Rihanna debuted her baby bump while wearing an $8,000 pink Chanel coat. Her oversized outerwear was unbuttoned at the bottom to reveal her growing bump adorned in a gold cross with colorful.
Reacting to the news of the singer’s pregnancy, Seyi Shay while congratulating her revealed to the shock of everyone, that she has known of the singer’s pregnancy since last year.
“Big Congratulations to @rihanna. This is the best news I’ve heard this year (but knew since last year) …”, Shay tweeted.
Her post did not go down well with netizens who took to her comment section to let her know that the extra piece of information was not necessary. Read some of the reactions below:
