Seyi Shay, the Nigerian singer and songwriter, says she is now engaged.


The music star announced her engagement during an interview with Beats FM. She, however, didn’t mention the name of her fiancee.

When asked about the diamond ring on her finger, she said: “some guy gave it to me and said, ‘would you marry me?’ It’s really diamonds. Diamonds are forever.

“I’d already evolved. I was already glowing before I met the guy. He just added to the glow.”


The songstress had earlier opened up about how fans had frequently put her under pressure to get married.

“Yeah, pressure to get married; have a boyfriend; have babies. That’s all before the pressure to release a new single sometimes. Crazy right? Pressure to share more butt pictures. But it’s good,” she had said.

“It’s part of it. It’s what keeps me gingered. But I don’t burn myself out; I don’t overdo.”


In 2020, the singer had broken up with her partner whom she was engaged to.

Seyi Shay currently has two studio albums and one extended play (EP) to her name.

Aged 36, she has worked with top musicians including Justin Timberlake, Brian Michael Cox, Darey, Bilal, Michelle Williams, Chip, Rob Knoxx, H-Money, and Cameron Wallace.

In January 2021, she signed a publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing Group, France in partnership with Universal Music France.


MultiChoice Nigeria would, in Februarylast year, unveil Seyi Shay as one of the three judges of Nigerian Idol season 6.
