"My Fall At AFRIMA Inspired A New Song" - Nigerian Singer Seyi Shay


Nigerian female singer and entertainer Seyi Shay who was recently the centre of attention at this year’s AFRIMA Awards after falling on stage during her performance, in a new interview revealed that she was so bitter with everyone when she got backstage after the fall that has now inspired a new song.

The 'Yolo Yolo' crooner disclosed this while speaking with Sunday Scoop in a new interview where she said;

“At backstage, I was blaming everyone. I blamed my stylist, the designer, and my manager. I even blamed the stage. But the truth is that what is meant to be will be. I think with every lesson, there is a blessing.

“I knew that when I got off the stage and opened my phone, there would be so much talk about my fall. Like I expected, by the time I got to my room, Instablog9ja already had 40,000 views.”

The singer who further disclosed in the chat that her fall on stage at the award was the first time she would be experiencing such an embarrassing moment, said;

“You know everybody has a first time. Wizkid, Davido and even Beyonce have suffered similar fate in the past. She fell from the stage. Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez have fallen on stage as well.

“So, when you think about all these stars and their experiences, you will realise that you are not different from them and you are not immune to mistakes as well. I see my fall as a very humbling moment of my life,” she added.

Further adding that immediately she left the Eko Hotel and Suites, the venue of the AFRIMA awards, she went straight to the studio with her manager and Klem, the songwriter who wrote ‘Yolo Yolo’, to make a song, she said;

“The title of my new song is The Fall, and it has to do with the AFRIMA’s experience. I plan to drop the song next month. Sometimes, when misfortune happens, you have to look at the positive side and all the opportunities in it to turn the misfortune into fortune. That’s what we are doing right now.”

Seyi Shay adding that she wondered how she picked herself up after she fell, while stating that she was just conscious of the fact that it was a live show and she couldn’t let Nigerians down, said;

“I guess the fall just brought out the best in me. It made me realise that I wasn’t invincible. Since I knew that it was a live show, watched by everyone across the globe, I couldn’t embarrass my country. I had no choice but to get up and finish the show.

“It was the dress I wore that caused the fall, but most people didn’t know that. I stepped on it and the material dragged me down. I will be 100 per cent careful when considering my costume going forward,” she added.
