    Congratulations to her. It is the dream of every good artist to be recognized globally. I think Sheyi is good but poor management has hindered her from soaring l think. But shaa, l hope she and her lawyers got the best deal for her. No one wants the Good records kinda crap. All noise and fury signifying nothing and nobody gats time for 12 years a slave kinda deal.

      hey sweetie!! I am the Queen of my own Queendom and feel no need to snatch Bruno’s tiara. I was in no way bitter with my post tho. I congratulated Sheyi Shay and asked if this was a songwriting deal or actual recording deal. If you don’t know, songwriters make $$ for every time a song is played/ performed and have control on what/ where/ how a song is used. Tiwa Savage wrote a song for Fantasia on of here albums and that was the only song that got nominated for a grammy that year. there is no shame in being a songwriter, etc…..I was just curious of what she signed as.

      hunnay, I am peace loving, so please save all ur venom for someone else. I am not sick boo, so pls quit it.
