Seyi Vibez talks about his rise to commercial success, motivation behind his music


Nigerian singer Balogun Afolabi Oluwaloseyi aka Seyi Vibez has opened up about his rise to commercial success, the motivation behind his music, and his decision to start a label.

The musician who shared his story in a new interview with Apple Music Africa Now Radio with Nandi Madiba, said that music was his only form of escape while he was young.

Seyi Vibez also revealed during the interview with Madiba that he always records music because that is the only way he can communicate with people.

“I just keep recording. It’s not because I want to record, it’s because I don’t like talking to people too much. From when I was young I didn’t like talking to people too much, so whatever was on my mind that’s getting me sad or was making me happy, I put in my music. I always record because that’s the only way I can communicate with people. I have a lot more songs than the ones I’ve dropped.”

The musician ascribes his success to God and his late mom whose memories continue to motivate him following the release of his debut album ‘Chance’ which has enjoyed huge commercial success.

He said; “I would say first of all it’s God, our creator. Apart from that my explanation is always my mum, but since she’s passed away I always say she’s alive [in me].

‘‘I don’t think I’m young, because everyone thinks I’m older than my age, nobody thinks I’m 23. I just have to keep pushing, because it’s like I’m doing what I’m not supposed to do at my age. I’ll keep doing it and my mum is still alive so my inspiration never dies, so I keep working.”
