Seyi Shay would not have done music in Nigeria if there were no Vector. The singer and Vector would appear together in yet-to-be-released movie, Lara and The Beat.
In a new chat with Sunday Scoop, Seyi Shay says nothing serious should be made out of her compatibility with colleague Vector. The ‘Irawo’ crooner said though the share some chemistry they’re not dating.
“I have a long and exciting history with Vector before the music and movie. He was one of the reasons I stayed in Nigeria to do music. When I first came to Nigeria, he was the first friend I made in the music industry. He really helped me understand the Nigerian music and told me things I didn’t know at a time. I featured him on the remix of Irawo. I am happy it was him I played a movie role with. It was very easy working with him because I know him well. I don’t know anything about being in a relationship with Vector, but I definitely think Lara and the Beat is a movie worth watching because we both share a strong chemistry.”
She admitted it was a worthwhile venture to make a foray into acting on “Lara & the Beat”, though she feared she may lose her fans.
“To play the movie role, I abandoned my music career for about two months as the hours on set were very long. I couldn’t go to shows neither could I record songs. I lost money but I made a great movie. However, I was extremely worried that the break could make me lose my fans but it didn’t. Acting in a movie has added to my profile and brand. When the movie comes out, it will boost my popularity.”
