Nigerian-based singer, songwriter, and actress, Deborah Oluwaseyi Joshua, professionally known as Seyi Shay features on the December edition of Genevieve Magazine.
In their exclusive interview, the Right Now crooner spoke on her recent Gimme Love remix with American singer, Teyana Taylor, her nomination for a lead actress award for her role in Lara and the Beat, as well as her upcoming EP.
She also sheds more light on her newly found flair for acting and what working with Aristokrat Group is like.
“Teyana has a great voice, a lot of sexiness and a lot of attitude. My team and I agreed that she would be the perfect female collaboration for those very reasons. She also has a strong female fan base and we wanted to tap into that.”
Speaking about her leading role in the 2018 film Lara and the Beat, for which she earned Leading Actress nomination, she said:
“I definitely much prefer singing as it’s my first love. Acting is hard and strenuous but I enjoyed every minute of the process. I would definitely do it again. I’m so honoured to have been nominated as Best Female Actress in a Leading Role, at the AMAA’s.
I think I would definitely do it again and probably more frequently in the future, once I’ve fully established my music career.”
On what to expect from her next project, she said; “I’m putting the finishing touches on my second EP. Gimme Love was the first single from the project so expect that level of delivery on this body of work.
I’m in a good space mentally. I’m happy, healthy and hopeful. I have a great new team called the Aristokrat Group and a great international team who have been working together tirelessly to ensure we get our desired results over the next couple of years.
