Even though she didn’t win big like Wizkid and Tiwa Savage, Seyi Shay was the centre of attention at this year’s All Africa Music Awards after falling on stage while performing.

While speaking with Sunday Scoop, the singer said she was so bitter with everyone when she went backstage.

She said, “At backstage, I was blaming everyone. I blamed my stylist, the designer, and my manager.  I even blamed the stage. But the truth is that what is meant to be will be. I think with every lesson, there is a blessing.

“I knew that when I got off the stage and opened my phone, there would be so much talk about my fall. Like I expected, by the time I got to my room, Instablog9ja already had 40,000 views.”

According to her, the AFRIMA’s experience was the first time she would be experiencing such an embarrassing moment.

“You know everybody has a first time. Wizkid, Davido and even Beyonce have suffered similar fate in the past. She fell from the stage. Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez have fallen on stage as well.

“So, when you think about all these stars and their experiences, you will realise that you are not different from them and you are not immune to mistakes as well. I see my fall as a very humbling moment of my life,” she added.

Immediately she left the Eko Hotel and Suites venue of AFRIMA, she went to the studio with her manager and Klem, the songwriter who wrote ‘Yolo Yolo’, to make a song.

She stated, “The title of my new song is The Fall, and it has to do with the AFRIMA’s experience. I plan to drop the song next month. Sometimes, when misfortune happens, you have to look at the positive side and all the opportunities in it to turn the misfortune into fortune. That’s what we are doing right now.”

She wondered how she picked herself up after she fell, saying she was just conscious of the fact that it was a live show and she couldn’t let Nigerians down.

“I guess the fall just brought out the best in me. It made me realise that I wasn’t invincible. Since I knew that it was a live show, watched by everyone across the globe, I couldn’t embarrass my country. I had no choice but to get up and finish the show.

“It was the dress I wore that caused the fall, but most people didn’t know that. I stepped on it and the material dragged me down. I will be 100 per cent careful when considering my costume going forward,” she noted.
