Let’s count – Onyeka Onwenu made the switch from music to movies and racked up accolades.
Now, Sheyi Shay has done the same with a star turn alongside, Somkhele Idhalama in Biola Alabi’s second movie, Lara and The Beat.
But the river hasn’t always flowed that way from music to the movies.
A few Nollywood actresses who started out as actors have tried to segue into music with, erm, disastrous, consequences.
Who remembers Omotola’s album Gba (2007) or Genevieve’s attempt at singing on the song ‘One Logologo Line’ (2004)?
Sometimes, you just have to stick to what you know but Sheyi Shay may well prove that she is a jack of all trade and master of all.
