After she debuted her acting career in the movie, Lara & The Beat, it’s not really a surprise to see the songstress, Seyi Shay impressively interpret her role as Delilah – an ex-lover of Adekunle Gold who broke his heart in the song, ‘Damm Delilah‘
The video is staged in a dark room covered with furniture as their relationship falls apart. In an unexpected turn of events, Seyi Shay also composed a feedback to Adekunle Gold’s lament. Here we can find two different perspectives on the song by both artists. This makes us understand that our perception is completely unique to us. No one ever, anywhere, will ever have the exact same perception of reality as we do.
Speaking on why Adekunle Gold chose Seyi Shay to play this vibrant character, he said:
“Since I love strong, beautiful independent women, there was no one else better than Seyi Shay to ask to create this for you.
“I am so grateful to her. She is undeniably the most receptive, down to earth and exciting people to work with.
“Delilah was meant to empower men(everyone really) to speak about their heartbreak, something that taboo with us.
“I hope this treat inspires women(everyone too) to end the chase quickly if they aren’t into each other.”
‘Damm Delilah’ is one of the outstanding tracks in Adekunle Gold’s About 30 album.”
