Seyi said Sultan and his wife have been her back bone ever since she returned to Nigeria in 2012. The singer revealed she came from a polygamous family and she stayed with her mum all her life who’s now late.
Shay said she sees Sultan as the father she never had because the singer has been a father figure to her. Seyi also praised Flytime boss, Cecil Hammonds for giving her a ladder to climb.
In her words, “Sound Sultan is like my dad really, the dad I never had. He is my mentor, he’s also my song writer; he and his wife are like my mum and dad. It’s a relationship that’s indescribable, God just used him as a vessel to really expose me. I used to go round with Naija Ninjas and Radio tours and he kept introducing me as his protégé. Cecil also used to tell people to put me on their shows that I’m good. Between the two of them, I flourished a lot.”
