There may be a future for Seyi Shay and rapper Vector, and it is all thanks to their new project Lara on the Beat.
The film follows the story of “Lara Giwa, a diva with different shades of grey and her sister, Dara Giwa (Somkele Idhalama) who are entangled in a financial mess with their deceased parents’ Media Empire. The sisters must learn to leave behind the past glory and build their future through music and enterprise.”
Vector plays the role of lays the role of Sal ‘Mr Beats’ Gomes in the film.
Speaking with Punch, the rapper opened up on how he felt when he kissed Seyi on set of the movie, the possibility of a relationship with her, and more.
On how he felt when they kissed: Seyi Shay and I had been friends for a while even before the movie but it was not awkward kissing her. It takes a level of expertise to kiss someone and try your best to suppress your feelings while you do it, especially with Seyi Shay. I won’t deceive you, I was aroused when I kissed her but I had to control myself. It is all about the control, I mean we are talking about Seyi, she is beautiful.
Asked if they have a future together: I am not trying to predict the future but you would never know, something could happen between us. At this point, Lara and the Beat was an awesome project. Let us leave it at that for now.
And the new skills he learned to be able to perform his role exceptionally: My experience on the set of Lara and the Beat was an amazing one and I even had to learn how to ride a power bike because of the movie. It was a crash course so I had to learn how to ride the power bike in less than a week. I had nursed some fears while I was learning how to ride a bike. The truth is that I learnt how to swim when I realised that the amount of water it takes to drown in the ocean is the same amount it takes for someone to choke while eating. I can be scared of riding a bike but that is all it would be, fear. I have to learn to conquer it and move on with life.
