According to the ‘Yolo’ singer, opting for a partner only based on their looks is “so shallow” and that other things must be taken into consideration.
Seyi Shay advises looking beyond to see whether or not the potential partner has money.
“Dating someone based only on looks is soooo shallow. Consider other things like; Do they have a lot of money?” she wrote on Twitter, with a thinking face emoji.
