Singer, Oluwaseun Oni, aka Saeon, has been off the scene for a while but many wouldn’t forget in a hurry, her spat with Wizkid, which culminated in the Starboy singer threatening to beat her up.
However, in a recent chat with Saeon, she hinted that she has since moved on. Responding to a question on whether she has forgiven Wizkid, she said, “One of the reasons I decided to title my latest single as Rebirth is because I have come to realise that many things we go through in life are meant to teach us lessons which shape us for the better and I believe everything that has happened – none of which I regret – has led me to this point.”
On what led to her absence from the industry, Saeon stated, “I had a tough but interesting 2017. I lost my dad midway through the year and I kept a low profile afterwards because he was dear to me. He inspired my love for songwriting and music generally. He was my number one supporter; so, losing him felt like I had lost a huge part of me. I had to take time to process it and to be with my family. I’m happy to be back to work and I know he would want me to forge ahead and keep following my dreams.”
