Nigerian singer Seyi Shay, has finally opened up on her relationship with late singer, Sound Sultan.
Speaking in an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Seyi Shey recalled how the late singer always got her back those times she had issues with some people in the industry.
“Sound Sultan teamed me up with Cecil Hammond of Fly Time. Cecil and Sultan brought me to Lagos and I lived with Sultan for about a year. I lived with both him and his wife. He was my mentor, one of my best friends, .We co-wrote songs together.
“At some point, our relationship became less about music and more about friendship. He was like my ‘small daddy’ kind of. When I started getting into trouble in the industry, he was like my bailout, my defender. He was very close to me and then his wife became my ‘small’ mummy. He was an incredible genius,”
She further spoke about her plans in her music career
“I’m happy with my career, especially now that I have this new project I’m about to drop. I could have never come up with such genius last year, maybe that’s why people think I’m arrogant. I’m a big girl now, so I’m not scared of you guys anymore. But this genius that I’m about to put out, I couldn’t have done it before now, because the content is just so mind-blowing. It’s like the old and the new me merged together. Sound-wise, it’s probably what people want to hear from me.”
