I love May7ven. She is my #1 choice if I had to choose in terms of music style, vocals and delivery of music. Fashion style, I’ll pass. Not sure what’s with the image branding lately. As to her alleged statements, there is room for as many female artists as possible to be successful in the industry, plus artists, please have a healthy respect for a new market when you step in there. I think the statements may appear to be taken out of context from its reporting.
At this stage May7ven should be in a league of her own when compared to male or female artists in the UK and Nigeria and she should be showing more consistency. I don’t think Tiwa and Seyi are her mates when it comes to experience and exposure in the business. Please stop comparing or responding to questions on comparisons and get to work folks.
Excerpts from a recent interview allegedly granted by UK based singer May7ven to thenetng.net:
“‘I know when I started, I know why a lot of females are now here. The likes of Seyi Shay and Tiwa Savage were all with me in London when I did ‘Bo Aso Lara mi’, so I influenced majority of them to be doing what they are doing now. ‘There always has to be a leader, someone who starts and creates things, and that’s how I see myself already. So the style I’m doing now, I guarantee you in another two years you’ll find another set of Tiwa Savage doing what I’m doing. I’ve always been an innovator and you can interview any of them, they’ll tell you the same thing so they maybe threatened that I’m around and not the other way round’…”

I will catch you or late next week. I’m out to enjoy a good mini-vacation.
