Beautiful Singer, Seyi Shay gathered her friends, industry colleagues, family and the media to a listening session for her forthcoming project, ‘Electric Package’, held at Zen Bar in Victoria Island, Lagos. It was arranged to give a selected few a first listen to sample opinions, get reviews and share her inspiration behind the EP.
Guests were treated to an interactive session, hosted by the singer alongside renowned producer, TY Mix, where she introduced each song, talked about the recording process and more. She had a different blend to the features on the song as she had a Dj and an Artiste featured on each of the six tracks.
The singer acknowledged that her gaffe in the video interview which went viral last year inspired the title as she and her team decided to throw the joke back to the fans.
From the first song, ‘One love ft Dj Spinall’ to the last song on the EP, ‘D Vibe’ featuring rave of the moment, Slimcase and a South-African deejay, Seyi Shay manages to come across as an artiste who has identified her strengths without being afraid to experiment outside the box. The project gets support from artists within other African countries like King Promise from Ghana who features on the song, ‘All I Ever Wanted’, a song that borrows lines from Onyeka Onwenu’s classic record, ‘You And I’, which Seyi Shay confirms that she got clearance from the legend and Tanzanian singer Vanessa Mdee alongside Nigeria’s DJ Cuppy on ‘Love You Scatter’. Other features include the high-life king, Flavour and Dj Consequence on the lead single, ‘Alele’ which is set to hit the airwaves this weekend and Kiss Daniel and Dj Neptune on ‘Surrender’.
In attendance were industry bigwigs like Beat Fm CEO, Chris Ubosi, OAPs Oreka Godis, Gbemi and Soundcity presenter Sdot, artiste manager Bankuli, Dj Neptune, singer Chidinma, Seyi Shodimu and actor Adeolu Adefarasin, among others.@MrVenturetz.com
