I dislike being treated like a star – Teen singer, Iseoluwa

Teen gospel singer, Iseoluwa Abidemi, is all about taking her music career which started at the age of five to the next level.

With the launch of her debut concert tagged ‘Iseoluwa in Concert’, which recently held at the RCCG Jesus Embassy Parish, VGC, Lekki, with the support of notable gospel acts including Mike Abdul, Tim Godfrey, Wole Oni, Onos, Eben, Tosin Bee, Odunayo Aboderin and the sensational MTN Project Fame music instructor, Uncle Ben, Iseoluwa seems to be stopping at nothing to stamp her feet on the Nigerian music space.


Surprisingly, the 13-years old singer who looks forward to becoming a Lawyer alongside doing music told Showtime in an exclusive chat how much she resents the attention and preferential treatment that comes with stardom.

“I’ll always be the same Iseoluwa forever because I don’t like my friends treating me like I’m a celeb; I like to be treated like I’m just a normal person”, she said.

Being a teen artiste with a lot ahead of her educationally and otherwise, Iseoluwa was quick to allay Showtime’s fear that she may get carried away with the dynamics of the music industry and may not concentrate on her education.

She said, “My parents have drawn a map for my music and education in a way that both will not clash. I intend to study Law in the University, my music will continue by the grace of God and I know He will give me the grace to combine both and I know I will cope. Music is not a part time thing for me it’s something I want to do but that doesn’t stop me from becoming a lawyer. My parents, friends and family support me a 100%, I get support from everybody and that has really helped me.”
