Love Has Never Been And Will Never Be Fair To Me” – Seyi Shay

Oluwaseyi Deborah Joshua, also known as Seyi Shay, came into limelight with her hit single ‘Irawo’ and has remained in the news due to her colourful and exciting performances on stage. The Afro Pop singer who stormed the music scene last year, in a recent interview talks about her life, love and her travails in the Nigerian music industry. The singer was asked about her love life and she replied thus: “Love has never been fair to me; love is never going to be fair. It’s even worse as a musician because in the Nigerian tradition, it is not seen as a conventional or respectable thing to be a musician. Everybody expects you to be seen and not heard. But when you are in the public eye like this, it is not easy to find true love.” When asked what inspires her kind of songs, she said everyday life On her role models in the industry, she said, “definitely Sound Sultan, 2Face (for his humility) and Wizkhid (laughs) for his consistency and hard work; and Omawumi because she is a strong woman. She is signed to her own record label – Oma Records. She is a mother and an artiste. I respect her a lot for funding herself”.
