Sultry Nigerian songstress, Seyi Shay has disclosed that she does not have plans to get married this year as she has a lot on her plate.
The 33-year-old “Gimme Love” crooner revealed that although she would get married and start a family soon, she can’t do it this year as pregnancy would hinder her plans for 2019.
“I will get married and start a family soon but I don’t think it will happen this year. With the volume of work I have to do this year, I will feel sorry for my would-be husband. I will have to run around a lot and I don’t think I can do that with pregnancy. This year, I want to release more music and a new extended play album. I will also release videos for every song I put out,”
Seyi Shay who spoke to Sunday Scoop also dismissed accusations of intellectual theft for sampling from veteran Nigerian music star, Lagbaja’s song, “Konkon Below” in her song, “Ko Ma Roll” featuring a Tanzanian artiste, Harmonize. On this, she had this to say,
“I am very aware that a part of my song, Ko Ma Roll, sounds like Lagbaja’s Konko Below. I decided to use the words, konko below, because they are catchy. I don’t think Lagbaja will accuse me of intellectual theft because we did the right thing. I explained to him and his team before I released the song.”
She went on further to say that she was not ashamed to sample Lagbaja’s words in her song. She said,
“If people are accusing me of using Lagbaja’s lyrics, it is great because that is what I did. It was strategic and there was a reason for it. Lagbaja is like a father, as he has been in the industry for many years. I consider it an honour to be given permission to use a part of his song. I have never met Lagbaja but I love his music. Whenever I meet him, I will try to see his real face.”
