NIGERIA: Here's What Singer's Mum Told Her Before She Died
21 May 2018
Deborah Oluwaseyi Joshua, best known as Seyi Shay, is talking about her childhood and so much more that has contributed to making her who she is today.
The singer most importantly, shared her mother's last message to her before she passed away but it's hardly what you would expect from a Nigerian mum.
Seyi shared this during a recent interview with Showtime Celebrity.
The "Yolo Yolo" singer who has made her mark in the Nigerian Music industry expressed sadness that her mother is not alive to witness her success.
When asked how she felt about that, Seyi said, "I just wish she could see everything I’m doing now and see that I haven’t given up despite the setbacks.
"I believe she will be proud of me."
When asked if she would have been put under any pressure to be married if her mother were still alive, she responded, saying, "Yes, that’s true but then she didn’t put too much pressure on me for that. She told me before she died to make sure I’ve done everything I want to do before I get married and not to allow any man to shatter my dream."
Profound for a Nigerian mother right?
