African songster from Nigeria, Seyi Shay said she got engaged in 2019 but the relationship hit the rock when she walked in caught her fiancé red-handed with another chic.
She made the revelation during an appearance on fellow singer Simi’s YouTube show “Stoopid Sessions”.
She hinted that the relationship packed up a few months later while sharing her thought on the of monogamy in relationships.
Seyi Shay shocked some people when she hinted she is cool with her partner having side chicks said: “I would actually be cool with my man having ‘chicks’. I will be cool so long as they are ‘chicks’, not one. Because if he has one on the side, he is going to fall in love. But if there are ‘chicks’ and he is doing his thing, I’m his number one, clearly and in every way. He doesn’t have to tell me about it so long as we have that conversation in the beginning.”
She declared she is capable being in a monogamous relation relationship.
She explained thus: “I am. I actually got engaged last year. People that knew, knew, right? I had my ring on and everything – people thought it was a fashion ring or something but it was actually an engagement ring – and then a few months later we broke up.”
HOW HER ENGAGEMENT BROKE
“We were already arguing about the whole wedding; there is a lot of stress when you are planning a wedding and I think somewhere in that all process, our relationship started to break down. Eventually, anyway, he was cheating on me and I found out because I walked in on the situation. I really wish I didn’t have to. So, the reason I decided and agreed to get married to this person is that I have a certain opinion on marriage. I don’t believe in the typical generalization of marriage. I don’t believe in that whole western type of ceremony or marriage – It is much deeper than that. Marriage to me is a bit more spiritual. It is much deeper than that. There is a type of glory that marriage gives you and your relationship as a woman or man and that is beyond the contract or the things you say to each other or the number of people in the ceremony.”
“Back to the issue of monogamy and exclusivity thing; I feel like once there is communication between the two people and you basically state what you can and cannot deal with, honestly, then everything is cool. To me, I cannot cheat once I’ve decided that this is the person I’m going to be with, I roll with it, I do what I have to do.”
The 34-year-old “Yolo Yolo” singer’s birth name is Deborah Oluwaseyi Joshua.
She wrote and produced three songs for the soundtrack to Konami’s video game Crime Life: Gang Wars.
