Yemisi May Odegbami, best known as May7ven, has been described by many as the Queen of UK Afrobeats. The Nigerian-born singer, songwriter, dancer, producer, and entrepreneur debuted in 2008 in the UK with her single ‘Hands Up’. She is the daughter of Nigerian soccer legend, Segun Odegbami. Chizy’s Spyware caught up with her.

It is already the end of the year; give us a summary of what you have been working on?

What have I not been working on recently? I have been doing a lot of collaborations lately against my better judgement or wishes, but I had to listen to my team when they said ‘you do not really mingle and you have not really collaborated with many artist’ so, if a song sounds good enough, then I will do it.

I did a collaboration with Chingy and 2face called ‘fallen’. 2face is one of the biggest in the African music industry and I love him to bits, so to get a song with him is phenomenal. I also did a collaboration with Alexander Burke, and another one with Mr 2kay. My new single should be out in a few weeks.
