Since it was reported that Seyi Shay shared a deep kiss with Olanrewaju Ogunmefun, aka Vector, in a forthcoming movie, Lara and the Beat, there have been reports that the two musicians could be in a relationship.
However, in an encounter with INKLING, Seyi Shay rubbished the reports, saying that she shared a long history with Vector even before they became known musicians. She said, “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 Beatis a movie worth watching because we both share a strong chemistry.”
Taking a break from music to feature in the forthcoming movie, she admitted that she feared she might lose her relevance. She stated, “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.”
Speaking on her recent cozy pictures with Kiss Daniel, which also ignited dating rumours, she said, “Those were just pictures taken on the set of a new music video and nothing more. I don’t pay attention to what people say on social media. I’ve done what I wanted to do and I have moved on,” he stated.
