MTV MAMA 2015 nominee Seyi Shay, in a recent interview with City People Magazine revealed that she owes her success to Sound Sultan and Flytime boss, Cecil Hammond.
According to her: ‘Sound Sultan is like my dad really, the father I never had. He is my mentor, he is also my songwriter; he and his wife are like my mum and dad. It’s a relationship that is indescribable. God just used him as a vessel to really expose me. ‘I used to go round with Naija Ninjas on radio tours and he kept introducing me as his protege. Cecil also used to tell people to put me on their shows that I’m good. Between the two of them, I flourished.’
