Sheyi Shay, Nigerian pop-diva was one of the music artistes who made the All Africa Music Awards lit as she performed with class and panache to a crowd of elite African diplomats, corporate giants, music lovers. The Nigerian diva whose song ‘Yolo Yolo’ is a rave Afrobeat about being grateful for one’s journey, won her producer DJ Coublon, the 2017 award for best producer.

Sheyi Shay tripped a bit on stage at first minute of her performance (1:05minutes) but she picked herself up without any fuss and went on to perform for 3minutes to an ecstatic crowd.  Sheyi Shay showed great depth and experience by keeping to the performance despite the brief shock.

Sheyi Shay, alongside her choreographers, displayed the resilience of the African person, who despite the obstacles, would rise up to the occasion.

She made heads turn, she made headlines and she made people think about ‘standing up’.

Everyone loves a come back story and so do I. I just love resilience, bravery and dogged determination. I love to see the fallen rise, the beaten win and the spat on shine. I respect a man who rises through the ashes and makes the most out of it and a woman who gets up from a fall like it never happened which brings me to Seyi Shay. So on sunday the 12th of November at the AFRIMA AWARDS 2017, the talented Sheyi Shay came on stage full of spirit and fire, the crowd went berserk and the entertainer in her took over and as she went down the stage-Boom!!! It happened! An entertainers worst nightmare happened!! The type that when it happens all you want is for the ground to open up and swallow you! No entertainer ever, ever wants to fall on stage and Seyi Shay did, the crowd gasped, I froze BUT Seyi? She “Shayed” up in style like it was all part of her well choreographed performance and continued like “What fall?” In that moment of brave confidence Seyi Shay became more than a singer to me. Today, Seyi Shay represents strength, confidence, resilience and professionalism, not only because she got up from a fall but because she got up from a fall in a hall filled with thousands of people and still held her own “like a boss” and without meaning to she taught me that it doesn’t matter who’s watching when you fall, just get up and own it anyway. Remember it is a choice to elevate. #rmdsaysso #riselikeitneverhappened#elevatewithrmd
