Seyi Shay Gives Off Melanin Vibes On Accelerate TV’s ‘The Cover’ For November 2018

Nigerian Singer and Songwriter Seyi Shay is the cover girl for Accelerate TV’s magazine The Cover. For the cover feature, she wore a pretty mustard shift dress from TrishaHallie Couture paired with slinky silver sandals – stylishly put together by designer Tokyo James.


In the interview, she speaks to Oluwaseun Ashiru about her unique style, music, her personality and so much more.

Read excerpts below:

On her experience in Atlanta: The music scene in Atlanta is constantly buzzing, they always support themselves. I was in the studio for about 8 weeks or so and on the sixth week, I think, the week that Sarz was around, Yung Geezy came to the studio and we had a really cool get-together. It was almost like we were celebrating the completion of my new project.


He came down with Ludacris, Meek Mill and many more. So many people came through, we listened to music and everybody was blown away, everybody was just so excited about what was about to happen with Afrobeats globally. I’m glad to be part of the ride, I’m glad to be part of this evolution because it means that now I’ve come into myself and I’m ready to just take over the world (laughs).

On her style: Well my style is very dependent on my mood and luckily sometimes my mood is fashionable, sometimes people love what I wear and sometimes people don’t. You can’t always get it right, especially if you’re, I would say an entrepreneur at fashion, in the sense that I don’t follow trends, I tend to just wear what I like or what feels really cool and comfortable and luckily people like it. I collaborate with really great designers and really fantastic stylists. My favourite designers all over the world are Nigerian designers. Not because I’m Nigerian, but just because of the innovation, creativity, colours, texture and the culture. You just can’t get it anywhere else.

Of course, I love my Italian and French designers but I will always be faithful to my African designers. They got me this far and you know everybody is trying to jock us right now (laughs).
