Fast-rising actress and sultry singer, Deborah Oluwaseyi Joshua, better known by her stage name ‘Seyi Shay has probably given a hint about the other of hers that is not open to the public.
Being a very private person one would expect the ‘Irawo’ crooner to be clingy and possessive but her recent chat with Potpourri reveals she’s anything but possessive.
When she was asked if she could recommend her ex boyfriend to a friend for marriage, the singer, who had a respectable outing in 2018 answered in the affirmative.
Hear her, “Yes, I would recommend an ex to a friend. I would be in the best position to know if they are suitable for each other, since I’m friends with both of them. The case of jealousy doesn’t arise because he’s my ex and our relationship was already in the past.
If he’s good enough for my friend, why not recommend him? His not being good enough for me doesn’t mean he can be good for my friend. Surely, I will recommend him, I see no reason badmouthing him to a friend who’s truly interested in him”
Ask lovers of Nigerian music today to mention the top five female singers ruling the music scene and see if Seyi Shay’s name doesn’t pop up. At least, this must be one of the reasons Pepsi thought it befitting to make her an ambassador alongside Tiwa Savage and Wizkid.
Born Deborah Oluwaseyi Joshua in London to Nigerian parents, Seyi started her professional career in 2005 by producing three songs for the soundtrack to the Konami’s video game Crime Life: Gang Wars and followed up with smash hits “Irawo”, “Ragga Ragga”,”Chairman and Murda”.
2018 wasn’t bad either for the dark-skinned singer as her discography for the year paraded songs like Surrenda, Love You scatter, Alele, All I ever wanted, D’Vibe, and One Love
