Any musician who desires to go far must be able to take criticism. ‘Yolo’ crooner, Seyi Shay reiterated this during an interview with Hip TV.
The svelte and sassy singer said she criticizes herself, trying to picture herself in the shoes of her fans.
Hear her: “I feel like one of my biggest strength is my video creativity. I am always part of the process, from creativity to editing. I edit like all my videos because I like to look at the videos as a viewer, even my music,” she said.
“And I have just been blessed enough to work with directors that let me edit, because I feel like there is a way I want to be portrayed too, and I am pretty good at criticizing myself.Like if something looks fake or wack, I will be the first to tell you that looks wack. So one of my biggest strength is definitely my video making quality.”
Speaking further, the vocalist noted that whenever things don’t go as planned during a performance, a true professional should be able to carry on.
“Sometimes we forget the lyrics, dance routine, sometimes things to don’t go according to plan but I feel like the show must go an all the time, and the sign of a true professional is to carry on performing even when things are falling apart around you.
“Even if the music cuts out or the mic cuts out, I tend to just sing acapella at the top of my voice and get the audience or crowd to join me in the lead. That’s a trick I have learnt out of the bag.”
