Please read Chaste's letter to Seyi Shay....Enjoy
LOVING YOUR WAY SEYI SHAY
February as we all know is the season of love and before it “ends” I’d like to
express my innermost feelings to my IRAWO-Seyi Shay. I love to save the best
for the last!
Judge this day if my love for you is true,
Let love bridge the perceived gap between us two,
My love, wear my love like a beautiful hat,
Prophesy life into my soul like Deborah of old,
Liberate this thirsty soul,
Lead my heart like Joshua into the promise land,
And you will see that my beautiful intensions are uncountable like sand,
Oluwa lo se yi indeed!
Babe, you meet my every need,
Deborah Oluwaseyi Joshua,
You’re my irawo-my shining star!
You’ve been on my mind for awhile now and I’ve waiting for the perfect time to
tell you that I’m loving your way girl. So, I reached deep within and wrote you
the poem above my love. I hope you like it and it finds room in your warm
name still remains Chaste and you suit my taste. I remember the first time we
met pretty well, it was at the MODE MEN AWARD NITE and sitting with you at the
same table got me thinking Proverbs 18: 22! Though, I was unhappy at the
presence of your company, that quantity who thinks he has magnitude and
direction called-Vector! My heart was burning like wild fire, I, almost passed
him a note reading “Angeli yi, emi mo ni”. Vector, is sure lucky I’m a 9ice
luck almost ran out on Don Jazzy at the INDUSTRY NITE and CHARITY LOUNGE
COLLABORATION EVENT at Oriental. You can only imagine the jealousy dear that ran
through my vein when I saw you with him at the pool earlier that day. I, left
like telling Jazzy to his face-“Goodie bag or no Goodie bag, ole gbaya lowo mi”
because, I’m D’Prince of your heart. Gosh! You looked so irresistible that
night I, couldn’t help but take a picture with you. I, posted our picture on my
site- chastecharity.org, facebook page and twitter account (@chastecharity) for
as long as love lasts and for all enemies of progress to see.
as a P.R Professional, I’m in the business of managing reputation and
perceptions and establishing good relationships with key stakeholders but, this
is not a publicity stunt sweet heart. It’d be my singular honor to manage your
heart just as I, simultaneously mange your heart. This gentleman here is quite
I’m loving your way Seyi Shay. I, can’t wait for the day you’d open heaven
before my very eyes as you sing to my ever listening ears your favorite hymns
from the days you were a member of the London Community Gospel Choir …I, can’t
wait for the day we’d visit those thirteen cities you toured and performed in
Japan when you were fourteen. You see there’s a whole lot your wonderful voice
does to me when you sing-its rich texture and soothing appeal sweeps me of my
This is a declaration of intent:
“TO LOVE ONLY YOU ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE”
Please, don’t get it twisted I’m no punisher honey; I’m just a man on fire like
Bovi, a man who wants to rock your world like Bonjovi. Seyi love, I’m not
chipmunk I, don’t tell white lies, I’m just a man who’s captivated by your
bright eyes, rich lips, lovely hips, cute nose and fantastic clothes! You’re a
beauty to behold!
I’m loving your way Seyi Shay. You’re a diligent woman with a vision. How many
people knew what they wanted to do with their lives at age six but, you did! My
sweet performer rocking stages at such a tender age is mind blowing!
-You wrote the you will see song in Mel C’s (spice girls member) Beautiful
Intensions album (which was a huge success)
- Wrote and produced three key songs for the konami Game Soundtrack; “Crime
- Signed your first record deal with Sir George Martin( Legendary producer of
You achieved all of this at age eighteen! Talk about talent, foresight, hard
work and I’d talk about my baby-you.
I’m loving your way Seyi Shay. I see strength, tenacity, the “can do” and
“never say die” spirit in you.
-You formed your girl band Boadicea
- A band managed my Ron Tom( founder and manager of Suga Babes and All Saints)
Though the band split two years after you pressed forward and emerged as the
lead singer of From Above ( British Rn B/Pop band) after attending a national
audition . From Above was signed under Sony / Columbia Records Company and
Music World Entertainment owned by Baba beyonce; Mathew Knowles….God sure
Knowles I, need you in my life.
I’m loving your way Seyi Shay. The titling of your bands’ MTV reality show
Breaking From Above” which was also the title of its debut album was smart!
Given the fact that the show aired in over 166 countries globally and
Nickelodeon in USA was definitely not excluded. This intelligent move
strengthened the bands’ brand, increased her popularity and it was pivotal (I
believe) to supporting Beyonce on “I AM” UK tour in 2009/ 10 and 2011…..amazing!
I’m loving your way Seyi Shay a.k.a Miss Versatile…..toured with Diddy and
Beyonce in Uk, written and worked with brilliant minds like; H Money, Darey,
Justin Timberlake, Chipmunk etc and upon your returning home you’ve rocked the
same stage with; Tuface Idibia, P-Square, Wizkid, Davido etc recorded with fine
producers like; Jay Sleek, Tee-y mix, Cobhams Asuquo, Del B. No doubt honey
there’s no limit to your creative abilities.
I’m loving your way Seyi Shay, you’re consistent! Began your career at age six,
over two decades ago and you’re still relevant! Registering yourself in my
heart as a sound Songwriter, Performing/Recording R n B/ Pop Artist…..you stand
out from the pack in our music industry, an industry which seeks originality
and mastery of one’s craft. Sweets, you’ve inspired and still inspiring many
out there….what a role model you are!
fascinated by your grasp of the Nigerian music industry. The fusion of our
culture and language to your music nailed it with your hit singles; Loving your
way, No lele, Irawo. Everyone’s having a Flytime watching your video, seeing
you perform on stage, “Seyi Shay” is on the lips of everyone…no show is
complete without you and I can’t wait for your album launch Boo……girl, I’m so
what’s your verdict-Is my love for you true? Love to attend all events that have
you on the bill too.
