We’ve all made fun of Seyi Shay over the past 6 months or so. I mean why wouldn’t you right? From the T-W-O blunder, to “fone” to the Electronic Package, she just can’t seem to get out of making blunders all over the place.
Well Seyi Shay is laughing last now. In an interview with Guardian, she said that she allows people to laugh at her, and some of those blunders are done intentionally. Here’s what she said:
You know, I’ve never really taken myself too seriously because I believe life is too short. Also, I generally feel like there’s a lot more going on in my life than just the business of music. I’ve done music for fifteen years in different parts of the world and what I’ve learned is to not take it too seriously. Sometimes, let people make fun of you – love hard, laugh harder. I made a particular mistake in December with the T-W-O thing, and it’s still funny. I figured, why not keep doing it, just for the LOLs, you know?
Ok o. We’re not sure if this is 100% true, but for your sake we’ll allow it madam. Make it no be say we are “phony”.
In the interview she also said that moving back to Nigeria from the Us was the best decision she ever made in her life.
I still feel like it’s the best decision I ever made in my life. Africa right now is the focal point of music, believe it or not. We have a lot of people looking to Nigerians, South Africans, West Africans and East Africans to bring something to the world, musically. I mean, look at Wizkid; he’s presently one of the biggest artistes in the world and he’s Nigerian. There’s no prouder time to be a Nigerian making music than now. When I was working with Matthew Knowles and the girls, it was really just a development and training ground for me. If I had stayed in the UK, the opportunities I have now probably would have never happened because there are 10,000 artistes just like me.
As for that allowing people to make fun of you though… OK.
