#2 – Seyi Shay
Bundle of talent Seyi Shay completely blew up these past 12-18 months. There’s no denying the fact that she’s been hard-working and deserves every bit of success she is getting right now. It was in 2012 that Seyi introduced her music to the Nigerian music scene with the ever blazing ‘Irawo‘ and since then its been steady strides until 2014/20115 when things picked up at and amazing pace.
Seyi’s sound was already on everybody’s lips with ‘Murda‘ featuring Shaydee & Patoranking and a Wizkid featured super jam ‘Crazy’ in 2014 but that is not the reason she’s on this list.
Along with Cynthia Morgan, she featured on one of the biggest collaboration with Mr 2Kay for the ‘Bad Girl Special’ tune, released a dope video for ‘Crazy’ and then dropped singles ‘Air Brush’ and ‘Jangilova’. Shortly afterwards, Seyi got signed to UK based imprint, Island Records, then went on to drop the amazing ‘Right Now’ with a very impressive video.
After announcing the release of her debut album, she bagged some pretty big endorsement deals with Etisalat and Pepsi, and as promised, dropped a master piece of an album in Seyi or Shay to end 2015 on a very high note.
Seyi Shay was super hot and stands gallant at the 2nd Position on our 5 Hottest Female artists in Nigeria 2016.
